A truly ridiculous performance from Leeds. Anyone thinking the Stoke game was a one-off couldn’t be more wrong.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell – 4 – He has to be doing better for Derby’s goal, don’t be surprised if Blackman takes over from here.
Luke Ayling – 8 – A typical Luke Ayling performance, our best defender on the day and was unlucky not to score too.
Gaetano Berardi – 6 – Every time Leeds came under pressure Berardi was usually at the heart of it, he’s a great squad player but I think it’s time for Jansson now. His effort is still undefeated.
Liam Cooper – 7 – Another solid performance from Cooper, although he did give the free kick away for the goal which he should have done better with.
Barry Douglas – 8 – Douglas was up there with Ayling, he’s unbelievably good going forward, it’s made such a difference having a natural left-sided player at left-back.
Kalvin Phillips – 7 – Kalvin followed up his great performance against Stoke with another solid one, it’s not a glamorous role but it’s one he’s extremely suited to.
Mateusz Klich – 9 – What a revelation this man has been. Over the years we’ve heard many a player being described as “like a new signing”, but this guy really is. Forshaw will find it hard to get into the team ahead of him.
Samu Saiz – 9 – Samu absolutely ran the show and ruined Ledley’s life today. If his final ball was better he would easily have been a 10. His best performance in a Leeds shirt, for me.
Gjanni Alioski – 8 – Who is this man and what has Bielsa done to him? His crossing this season is levels above what it was last year. Great header for his goal as well.
Pablo Hernandez – 8 – Pablo is so important for our high pressing game and he does it better than I ever imagined he could, his passing remains the best at the club.
Kemar Roofe – 9 – His second goal has to be the best goal I’ve seen Leeds score in a very long time, if he’d finished the big chance where Ayling headed it back across to him, he’d have a 10 rating. Bamford will find it hard to get into the team at the minute.
The ratings speak for themselves, that was a wonderful performance from Leeds United. Strap in, this season is going to be a wild one.
