Leeds United continued their disappointing run of form by slumping to yet another 4-1 defeat – this time at the hands of Crystal Palace. The Whites played well throughout the game and were quite competent. But without players like Pablo Hernandez and Rodrigo, they failed to create too many clear cut opportunities, as Patrick Bamford’s goal in the first half turned out to be a mere consolation.
Leeds United Player Ratings Vs Crystal Palace
Illan Meslier 4/10
A terrible evening for Illan Meslier, who should have reacted way faster in the Costa own goal. Wasn’t exactly convincing except the Zaha goal where he tried his best to cut the angle, even though the ball still found the net.
Luke Ayling 5/10
Luke Ayling provided some useful forward balls but looked pretty dismal when defending counter-attacks. Needs to do better.
Robin Koch 5/10
Robin Koch was culpable for conceding the free-kick that led to Palace’s second goal. He was completely beaten by Eze, and it was overall another unconvincing performance from the German.
Liam Cooper 5/10
Liam Cooper did not provide an ounce of solidity despite all his experience and leadership. Should have done much more in keeping the Palace attack at bay.
Stuart Dallas 5.5/10
Operated as a wing-back that allowed him to provide more support going forward. Unfortunately, it was a bad day at the office not just for him but for his teammates as well.
Mateusz Klich 7/10
Mateusz Klich was one of the better performers for Leeds United. He was a dynamo in the middle of the park, often getting on the end of loose balls and provide useful passes, including the assist to Bamford’s disallowed goal and the legitimate goal.
Pascal Struijk 5.5/10
An uneventful game for Pascal Struijk, who tried to control things in the middle of the park but couldn’t. The game was too dynamic for the youngster’s liking.
Ezgjan Alioski 6/10
Ezgjan Alioski was much more involved in the proceedings compared to Dallas. He covered a lot of ground and showed excellent work-rate, though the final ball was always missing.
Helder Costa 5.5/10
An unfortunate game for Helder Costa, who was subjected to the own goal right before half-time. Didn’t provide too much going forward though and was replaced by Raphinha during the start of the second half.
Patrick Bamford 6/10
Patrick Bamford showcased a remarkable finish to level the scoring in the first half, but the goal was controversially and perhaps harshly disallowed by VAR. He did still manage to find the back of the net moments later, but missed a huge opportunity in the second half, completely misjudging a header.
Jack Harrison 6/10
Jack Harrison had a great game in the first half, providing a lot of dynamism down the right flank. He kept the Palace defenders busy but failed to provide the clear cut chances.
Provided a lot of craft and guile after replacing Costa at half-time. The Brazilian looks much more productive compared to his Portuguese teammate.
Tyler Roberts 6/10
Didn’t provide much to change the game after replacing Struijk during the final phase of the game.
