13 Mar 2021: Premier League, Leeds United hold Chelsea: Records broken

Leeds United and Chelsea played out a 0-0 draw in the Premier League.

The Blues missed the chance to go third ahead of Leicester City for now.

Notably, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel extended his unbeaten run to 12 games in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Leeds remain 11th, one point ahead of Wolves.

Here we present the records broken.

LEECHE: Both sides fail to find an opening

In a closely fought contest, both teams hit the woodwork and tested their respective goal-keepers but there was no luck.

Leeds avoided a third straight defeat after going down against Aston Villa and West Ham United.

For the Blues, Kai Havertz missed two good chances.

Tuchel will be disappointed as his side dropped two points as the race for the top four intensifies.

Records: Notable records scripted by Tuchel

Chelsea registered their third goalless draw under Tuchel in the Premier League.

As per Opta, they had only two goalless draws in 57 league games under Frank Lampard.

Tuchel's run of 10 Premier League games unbeaten since the start of a new managers' reign is second only to Nottingham Forest's Frank Clark and Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri.

Fact: Tuchel equals this record of former Blues manager Scolari

Tuchel, who is unbeaten in all 12 of his games in charge of Chelsea across competitions, has recorded the joint-longest unbeaten start by a manager in the club's history (Felipe Scolari also 12).

Feats: Unwanted record for Leeds, Havertz impresses

As per Opta, Leeds attempted just one shot in the first half against Chelsea, their joint-lowest tally in the opening 45 minutes of a league match under Marcelo Bielsa (also 1 versus Brighton in January).

As per Squawka Football, Kai Havertz attempted more shots (4) and shots on target (4) than any other Chelsea player.
