Leeds United locked horns with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier today as they looked to earn a positive result on their travels. The Whites were solid in the first half and managed to get to the half-time break without conceding a goal.
The Yorkshire outfit started the second half well but conceded the opener in the 67th minute when Harvey Barnes found the back of the net from a tight angle. The contest ended with the Whites suffering a tough 1-0 loss away from home.
Let’s take a look at how each Leeds player performed during the match against the Foxes.
GK: Illan Meslier – 7/10
The Whites goalie made some solid saves during the game but will be disappointed for conceding a goal midway through the second half.
RB: Stuart Dallas – 7/10
Dallas performed his defensive duties well and managed to engineer a few inviting chances for his teammates to score.
CB: Luke Ayling – 7/10

CB: Pascal Struijk – 7/10
Struijk earned the ball back a few times during the game and orchestrated one good chance going forward.
LB: Junior Firpo – 7/10

CM: Robin Koch – 6/10
The German midfield ace did his best to protect his backline but lacked quality in the final third.

Harrison caused all sorts of problems for the opposition with his creativity and dribbling. However, there was no goal for him today.
ST: Daniel James – 6/10
James wasted some decent chances to find the back of the net but orchestrated two promising chances up top.
ST: Joe Gelhardt – 6/10
He offered very little in front of the opponent’s goal.
CM: Adam Forshaw – 6/10
