Harrison With 8.5, Cooper Gets 7 | Leeds United Players Rated In Their Table Topping Win Against QPR

Leeds United welcomed QPR at Elland Road, and they registered a 2-0 win which took them to the top of the table for a day atleast. The Whites dominated the proceedings in the first half, and they created quite a few chances. They had 11 attempts on QPR’s goal in the first 45 and Bielsa would be glad that they did manage to find the back of the net, unlike some previous games. Jack Harrison cut the ball back to Tyler Roberts, who scored with a lovely low drive in the 39th minute. QPR did offer some threat on the counter from time to time.

United continued to be the better side in the second half, and Bamford found the net just after the hour mark following some good work by Roberts. However, the goal was ruled out due to offside. There were some warning for the Whites, but they got their comfort in the 82nd minute as a miscued clearance from Hall allowed Harrison to slot in the second goal.

Here is how United fared against QPR.

Kiko Casilla 6

Had some comfortable saves to make. Looked calm and composed in goal.

Liam Cooper 7

Returned to the eleven after the injury setback and looked comfortable at the back. Pocketed Hugill and Wells.

Ben White 7.5

One of the calmest men on the pitch as he played out from the back even with the opposition pressing. Read the dangers well, and nothing went past him.

Stuart Dallas 7

Again showed his versatility by laying in a wingback role. Carried the ball well and linked up play smartly with Costa on the right.

Luke Ayling 6.5

Played as the right-sided centre half in the back three and did a decent job overall. Not too great, not too terrible.

Kalvin Phillips 6.5

A steady performance from the English midfielder. Was combative in the middle and delivered a few impressive set pieces.

Mateusz Klich 6

Had an okayish game as he misplaced a few passes. Nothing too eye-catching but kept the ball moving, which helped the Whites to dominate the game. Got booked early on but was smart enough to not commit a significant foul after that.

Tyler Roberts 8

Scored the first goal emphatically which calmed everyone down in the stadium. Looked incisive and his movements were also clever. Should be a regular feature in attacking midfield.

Helder Costa 7

Worked hard and produced some eye-catching football with some of his little one-twos. Often got into central positions and kept the opposition on edge.

Jack Harrison 8.5

Got another assist as he had the eye to cut the ball back to Roberts for the first goal. Scored the second confidently. Had a good game on the left as he was able to find himself in space and isolate the defenders in one on one situations.

Patrick Bamford 5

Has now gone ten games without scoring. His overall performance was also not up to the mark as he wasn’t able to affect the game much in build-up play. Just seems to lack a killer instinct. Badly needs a goal to get some of his confidence back.

Substitutes

Pablo Hernandez 5

Got the last 15 minutes and the Whites’ faithful would be glad to see him back. Wasn’t able to affect the game much after coming on.

Leif Davis 6

Saw out the lead in the end and made some darting runs up the pitch.
