Fofana stops Chelsea rot with towering header to sink Leeds

Wesley Fofana earned Chelsea a crucial 1-0 victory over Leeds to ease the pressure on under-fire head coach Graham Potter.

Chelsea were winless in their previous six matches and way off the top-four pace after a humiliating 2-0 defeat at rivals Tottenham last Sunday - but deservedly stopped the rot at Stamford Bridge.

Kai Havertz was denied by a superb Ilian Meslier save and Joao Felix struck the crossbar in the first half before Fofana netted with a towering header shortly into the second period to score the club's first goal since February 14.

Leeds struggled to cause Chelsea any major problems in defence with Potter's big test still to come on Tuesday as they aim to overturn a one-goal deficit in their Champions League last-16 tie at home to Dortmund.
