Leeds United took on Hull City and came out with all three points after securing a 1-0 win. The scoreline might suggest that the Tigers were in the game, but the reality is that they were far from it.

The first half went as most of us would have expected as United dominated the proceedings and possession. However, it was the same old story like the previous games as the Whites failed to take their chances in the final third. Ezgjan Alioski, Barry Douglas and Luke Ayling all were guilty of missing clear-cut chances, and the Tigers would have been glad that they went in at halftime 0-0.

United scored early in the second half through Tyler Roberts who took the goal brilliantly by going past one man and unleashing a low and precise shot from outside of the box. The Whites are making a habit of scoring some great goals, and it seems like they blatantly miss easy chances to score wonder goals. United kept the pressure on and did enough to see the game out without too much of a worry. 

This is how United players fared in their crucial win against Hull City.

Bailey Peacock Farrell 6

The goalkeeper had very little to do but did give some nervy moments in the first half. Was alright with his distribution.

Barry Douglas 6

Should have scored from the opportunity he got in the first half. Was decent while going forward and kept it tight at the back.

Liam Cooper 6

Had a comfortable evening as the captain was hardly tested or called into action much. Looked assured with the ball on his feet.

Pontus Jansson 7

Won his aerial duels and the Swede was spot on with his positioning. Kept the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Chris Martin quiet.

Luke Ayling 6

Like his other full-back partner, Ayling was also guilty of missing an easy chance from a close range. Wasn’t tested much defensively. Did his usual job while going forward. Nothing too eye catchy, nothing too bad.

Kalvin Phillips 7

Played the anchor role well and dictated the tempo of the game. Was caught in possession once or twice but overall an assured performance.

Mateusz Klich 8

Another top performance from the Polish international as he ran the show in the attacking half. His passing was sublime, and he could have scored on a few occasions if he took his chances well from outside of the box.

Samuel Saiz 6

Was his usual self but didn’t see much of the ball as he was playing higher up the pitch. Made a shambolic dive in the penalty box for which he was rightfully booked.

Jack Harrison 6

Like most of his team-mates tonight, the Englishman wasn’t too special, and neither was he too bad on the night. Still can improve with his decision making in the final third.

Ezgjan Alioski 5

Missed a great chance in the first half to open the scoring. A lot of his crosses were over or under hit. His movement was top notch but often failed to come up with a final product.

Tyler Roberts 8

The youngster has shown improvement in almost every game now, and his well-taken goal was the real difference between a frustrating night and a comfortable win. Bielsa would be delighted that Roberts came to the party to rescue his side.


Adam Forshaw 6

Played the last 15 minutes of the game and did his job well.

Stuart Dallas 6

Got some fresh legs onto the field and helped the Whites in seeing out the game.
