The champions made four changes from the side that lost to Mohun Bagan as K. Lalthathanga, Leonce Dodoz, Lalramhmunmawia and William Lalnunfela were replaced by Lalrosanga, Yugo Kobayashi, David Lalrinmuana and Albert Zohmingmawia.
Soundarajan made only a single change as the French striker Jean Michael Joachim was slotted in the playing XI in place of Murilo Almeida.
Menezes' boys proved him right as they started the game on a positive note to press hard on their opponents.
Aizawl midfield pass-master David Rinmuana who was introduced in the playing XI after suffering a minor injury proved vital for the home side as the former captain earned a penalty when he was brought down in the box by the Kyrgyz Republic defender Shumeiko in the 24th minute.
Yugo Kobayashi stepped up in the game as he calmly slotted the ball in the back of the net to notch up his third goal of the season.
Chennai City FC, who stunned the Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan before holding Shillong Lajong in a chilly weather, did little to halt Aizawl's free-flowing game and key player Soosairaj could hardly make any impact on Aizawl's defence.
David again put the sword to Chennai's heart as he scored Aizawl's second goal in the 32nd minute.
V. Soundarajan made two substitutions right after the second half began as Shaji Antony and Beautin Antony replaced Shaji and Alexander Jesuraj to balance the play in their favour but the substitutes could not produce any trickery in favour of the away side.
Vanspaul's shot from inside the box flew away from Avilash Paul's goal and Junior's powerful shot towards the end of the game was carried away by Paul.
Menezes' boys tried to hurl more in the dying embers of the game but the third goal eluded them finally.
Aizawl will now host Kingfisher East Bengal which is touted to be an emotional homecoming for Khalid Jamil who steered the Highlanders to lift the silverware last season.
With nine points from 10 games, Chennai City FC have settled the eighth spot on the table whereas Aizawl FC are two places above having garnered four points more with three matches in hand.
