Leeds United win on penalties! Player ratings v Burnley


What a game! The first half was like listening to any Leeds game from the last 10 years on a Tuesday night. After that however, it was a bit different. Here’s our player ratings:

Andy Lonergan – 8 – Made some brilliant saves, was tested a lot more than Felix has been so far and without the help of Jansson and Cooper, I thought he was excellent.

Into the defence…



  1. More good news – depth of squad great!
    Perhaps tonight’s midfield should get the nod for the Millwall-style (physical) games, the usual suspects for the rest – certainly Christiansen has options across the park to guide us through different types of opponent, as well as covering for injury, suspension and form-dip issues – and looks a manager capable of using his riches wisely.

  2. Was “undercover” in the mix with the Burnley fans tonight and couldn’t stop myself from cheering the first goal!! Great team performance. CBJ wasn’t interested tonight but Shaughnessy and Klich stood out for me. Calm under pressure. Shows what strength we have in depth. Good tactical change from TC to change things at the back. MOT

  3. It’s a long long time since we have had a squad that gives the manager a selection headache. However, whoever starts on Saturday still leaves us with options all over the bench.

  4. Mateusz Klich seems to be getting to full fitness after his pre-season injuries.
    Just at the right time to give options in mid-field.
    Ronaldo needs games too now, and got stronger as the gam e went on!!
    Well done the boys!!
