Leeds United faced off against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park earlier tonight as they looked to earn a positive result on the road. The Whites kept a solid shape in the first half and went into the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.

Both sides fought tooth and nail in the second half as the match finished 0-0 with Jesse Marsch’s men coming away with a point from the English capital.

Let’s take a look at how each Leeds United player performed during the clash against the Eagles.

GK: Illan Meslier – 8.5/10

The Whites keeper made a handful of solid saves during the game to keep his clean sheet intact. He deserves to be named the man of the match.

RB: Luke Ayling – 7/10

He gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and had a couple of lively moments in the final third.

CB: Diego Llorente – 7.5/10

Llorente got stuck in with plenty of tackles and made two good runs with the ball.

CB: Liam Cooper – 7.5/10

He cleared the danger when needed and did enough to secure a clean sheet tonight.

LB: Stuart Dallas – 7/10

Dallas worked hard and gave a good account of himself at both ends of the field.

CM: Mateusz Klich – 6/10

He struggled to get into the game and got replaced at half-time.

CM: Kalvin Phillips – 7/10

The English sensation anchored the midfield with conviction but offered very little in the opponent’s half.

RW: Raphinha – 6.5/10

The Brazilian talent made a few solid tackles and showed some glimpses of what he is capable of in the final third. However, there was no goal for him tonight.

CAM: Rodrigo – 6.5/10

He had a few bright moments in the game but didn’t do enough to score.

LW: Jack Harrison – 7/10

Harrison engineered a couple of inviting chances in the attacking end of the field and worked hard defensively as well.

ST: Daniel James – 6/10

He made one good chance in the final third but had a quiet game in front of the Crystal Palace goal.

Substitutes:

CB: Robin Koch – 6.5/10

Koch kept a clean sheet in the second half.

ST: Sam Greenwood – 6/10

The English attacker hardly got a sniff at goal.

ST: Joe Gelhardt – 6.5/10

He caused a few problems for the opposition defenders.
