One of the worst performances I’ve seen from Leeds this season, every pass was either too slow or miss-hit, there were hardly any good chances created and to top it all off, the referee was catastrophically bad, again.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell – 7 – Didn’t have loads to do but a solid enough day with Kiko watching on from the bench.
Into the defence…
Luke Ayling – 4 – Ayling has not been the same player since returning from injury, his passing at times is horrific.
Pontus Jansson – 6 – Jansson was his usual solid self until he fell over when Afobe was running through on goal, which apparently is now a red card offence.
Liam Cooper – 5 – Didn’t do too much wrong today, Stoke really didn’t offer too much of a threat. However he summed up Leeds today nicely by giving the ball away on the edge of his own box, resulting in Stoke’s 2nd goal.
Gjanni Alioski – 6 Some strange decision-making, a lot of poor corners and sloppy passing. You can’t fault his effort playing at left back but he wasn’t at his best by any means. Got the consolation goal so I guess that’s something.
Into the midfield…
Adam Forshaw – 6 – Slowed attacks down too much in midfield and got caught on several occasions.
Mateusz Klich – 4 – Can’t remember the last time Klich had a good game to be honest, couldn’t do much right today.
Pablo Hernandez – 5 – Even Pablo was sloppy today, that’s when you know it’s a bad day at the office.
Into the attack…
Jack Clarke – 6 Clarke couldn’t get involved in the game very much today, on the rare occasion he got the ball in a good position, he put some dangerous crosses in.
Jack Harrison – 0 – Was he even playing?
Kemar Roofe – 6 – Absolutely no service to Roofe today, how is he supposed to win headers against Ashley Williams and Ryan Shawcross?
On a week where Leeds have been attacked from all angles, expect to see more of the same after that horror show.
Let us know what you thought of the game today!
