Another away game, another win. That’s 6 in a row now for Leeds. It was without a doubt the hardest away trip so far this season but we got the job done in the end.
Kiko Casilla – 9 – Not seen Kiko have a game like this for Leeds before, he made every save look easy even when they weren’t, top quality.
Stuart Dallas – 8 – Another top performance from the Cookstown Cafu, Ayling is going to struggle to see the pitch this season the way Dallas is playing.
Ben White – 7 – Ben White did what Ben White does, cruise through the game with little to no issues throughout.
Liam Cooper – 7 – Another solid showing from Captain Cooper fresh on the back of his new 5-year-deal. Did struggle with Wilks’ pace at times but did a good enough job on him.
Gjanni Alioski – 6 – Really poor in the first half, his crossing especially, but he grew into the game in the second half.
Kalvin Phillips – 8 – A few slack passes in the first half but grew into the game and was his natural self. Some absolutely wonderful crunching tackles in key areas and how could we forget his wonderful set piece for Eddie’s goal.
Jamie Shackleton – 7 – Shackleton did well filling in for Forshaw, he seemed quiet at times but whenever he was on the ball he drove forward with pace and played some wonderful passes.
Matuesz Klich – 7 – Not a vintage Klich performance, but his passing in the second half was key and he took his penalty very well. He should have been taking them all of last season!
Jack Harrison – 4 – It’s time, Costa has to replace Harrison for the game against Derby next week. Harrison simply doesn’t offer enough going forward to keep his place.
Pablo Hernandez – 6 – Pablo wasn’t his usual self today, some sloppy passing at times. He did however play one brilliant ball through to Eddie who was unlucky not to score.
Patrick Bamford – 7 – Bamford’s all round game was very good today, he just isn’t clinical enough with his chances. He was rightly angry to be substituted, but Eddie is exactly what we need.
Helder Costa – 7 – As soon as Costa came on the whole aura around the team changed, the offside goal was very tight but offside or not, it showed you exactly what Costa is about. Pace to burn with a final ball to match.
Eddie Nketiah – 9 – The man the myth the legend, always in the right place at the right time. His movement is brilliant and his pace terrifies defenders. He should join Costa in the starting eleven against Derby.
