Leeds United locked horns with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a good result on their travels. The Whites made a poor start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the 16th minute when Robin Koch scored an unfortunate own goal. Harvey Barnes went on to double the home side’s advantage in the 35th minute as Leeds went into the half-time break 2-0 down on the scoreline.

The West Yorkshire club dominated the ball in the second half but failed to come up with a response as the contest finished with Jesse Marsch’s side suffering a 2-0 defeat away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Leeds United player fared during the match against the Foxes.

GK: Illan Meslier – 5.5/10

He failed to make a save in the game and will be disappointed after conceding two goals in the first half.

RB: Rasmus Kristensen – 7/10

Kristensen gave a good account of himself on the defensive third of the pitch and had a few lively moments in the Leicester half.

CB: Robin Koch – 5/10

Koch had a woeful first half as he conceded an unfortunate own goal which have the Foxes the platform to secure the win.

CB: Diego Llorente – 6.5/10

The Spanish talent did his fair share of defending and was a good on the ball as well.
