Both goalkeepers were kept busy as the two sides sought a goal but Tuchel will be disappointed that his side didn’t capitalise on their dominance in possession.
Raphinha had a good chance on 55 minutes to put Marcelo Bielsa’s side ahead but quick reflexes from Edouard Mendy saw the shot parried away.
Chelsea continued to hammer the Leeds goal with Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Ben Chilwell all getting shots away but failing to find their target.
In a strange decision on 79 minutes Rodrigo was subbed off by Bielsa despite only being substituted on after 35 minutes when Patrick Bamford suffered an injury.
