Having gone one-nil down inside the game’s opening five minutes, Leeds United’s misery has been piled on further.

Attacker Dan James has been sent off following a poor challenge on Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Midfielder Mason Mount opened the scoring and with James flying in on Kovacic and seeing red, Marsch must be wondering what he has to do to get his side firing.
