Leeds United welcomed Manchester United at Elland Road earlier today as they hoped to pick up a good win at home in the Premier League. The Whites made a decent start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time interval.
Leeds finally conceded the opening goal in the 80th minute when Marcus Rashford found the back of the net with a good header. Alejandro Garnacho doubled his team’s advantage just six minutes later as the Yorkshire club crashed to a poor 2-0 loss in front of their home fans.
Let’s take a look at how each Leeds United player fared during the match against the Red Devils.
GK: Illan Meslier – 6.5/10
The Leeds keeper made a few solid saves at the back but won’t be happy after letting in two late goals today.
RB: Luke Ayling – 7/10
He made a couple of crucial defensive contributions and was lively in the Man United half.
CB: Maximilian Wober – 6/10
Wober got stuck in with some crunching tackles and made one good chance going forward.
CB: Robin Koch – 6.5/10
He made a lot of important clearances on the defensive end of the pitch. However, all of his good contributions were undone in the latter stages of the contest.
LB: Junior Firpo – 6.5/10
He was a positive influence at both ends of the field and has got nothing to show for his efforts.

CM: Tyler Adams – 6.5/10
He offered decent protection for his teammates at the back but offered very little going forward.

Summerville worked his socks off in both halves but failed to register a goal.
CAM: Jack Harrison – 6.5/10
He came back to defend when needed but offered very little on the attacking third of the pitch.

Bamford was a threat at times but struggled to finish off his chances.
ST: Georginio Rutter – 6/10
The French sensation had a couple of lively moments in the game.
