Baily Peacock-Farrell for Leeds, the woodwork for Sunderland, the best players on each side and that tells a story. Leeds main issue today was the lack of a number 9 in the box, someone who would attack the ball, and some of the deliveries into the box need looking at as well.

Player Ratings

Baily Peacock-Farrell – 9 – #PASMOM – Best performance since he came into the side. Strong in the air, pulled of a couple of wonderful saves, one in particular was brilliant.

Stuart Dallas – 4 – Probaby the poorest I’ve seen Dallas in a Leeds shirt. Nothing wrong with his passion or desire, but he got into six or seven crossing positions today and didn’t put in a decent delivery.

 

Pontus Jansson – 7 – Strong today, was better alongside O’Connor which doesn’t really make sense but he stepped up for the youngster and he didn’t dissapoint.

Paudie O’Connor – 7 – A very encouraging debut. The Irish youngster was composed both and and off the ball and showed he can get stuck in too.

Gaetano Berardi – 3 – A point for every red card this season. A shocking tackle, let the side down.

Gjanni Alioski – 5 – Poor today. Worked hard but wasteful on the ball and missed a sitter.

Ronaldo Vieira – 7 – Stood out in the middle today and looks to be back to himself. Hit the post in the first half with a good effort.

Kalvin Phillips – 6 – I thought Phillips did well today, he just gave a few sloppy passes away, less than O’Kane normally does though.

Pablo Hernandez – 8 – Took his goal well and almost scored a lovely goal but Camp saved well. Also put one on a plate for anyone? No takers? Of course not.

Samu Saiz – 7 – Better today, should have scored one and had another cannon back off the post from a free-kick.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga – 4 – Did nothing, didn’t get in the box enough and ducked when crossed did come in. One of those games from him.

Kemar Roofe – 5

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
