Thomas Christiansen’s Leeds United surprisingly succumbed to Millwall at the Den this weekend as they fell to a loss to a solitary goal from the home side. It was a frustrating night for the visitors and here are our Leeds United player ratings from what transpired.
Felix Wiedwald 7/10
Wiedwald was shaky at the start but did find his feet between the sticks later on as the game progressed. He might have failed to bag a clean sheet but he did make some good saves.
Luke Ayling 6/10
The fullback looked uncomfortable throughout the game as he was sloppy whilst going forward more often than not and also had some loopholes in his defensive endeavours as well.
Pontus Jansson 6/10
Jansson fared well but he was largely at fault for the goals which the Whites conceded. A player of his calibre must do better.
Conor Shaughnessy 6/10
Shaughnessy needs to be more composed on the ball, but he would learn more by acquiring more games under his belt.
Vurnon Anita 4/10
Anita seemingly appeared to be the weak-link in Leeds United’s defence, as he was outclassed on the left most of the times. He lacked the requisite cutting edge whilst going forward and failed to inject any sort of resilience to the backline.
Kalvin Phillips 6/10
Phillips did make some shrewd tackles during the game but Millwall breezed past him on many occasions and nullified his influence.
Eunan O’Kane 4/10
O’Kane was never in control of the game as he was completely wasteful with the ball whilst going forward and failed to impose any sort of grip in the middle of the park.
Samu Saiz 5/10
What the home side did was that they didn’t afford Saiz the space he needed to thrive, thus suffocating him and taking him out of the scheme of things. So, he failed to create anything worth noting.
Pablo Hernandez 4/10
Hernandez looked terribly out of touch today and could manoeuvre nothing substantial and was eventually subbed at the break.
Ezgjan Alioski 5/10
Alioski went missing during the first half and was pulled out by Christiansen at the halfway mark.
Pierre-Michel Losogga 5/10
Lasogga was bereft of opportunities up front and had absolutely no service to convert. He had a very quiet game.
Stuart Dallas 6/10
He brought a bit of urgency in the attack after being brought on at the expense of Hernandez.
Kemar Roofe 5/10
Roofe, after coming on for Alioski, couldn’t garner anything worth mentioning.
Jay-Roy Grot 5/10
Grot replaced Saiz and despite being the focal point, the requisite output was missing.
