Leeds United received all tens for their performance at Elland Road.

4-2-3-1 Leeds United

Illan Meslier No. 1
A bystander until he was requested to hold onto a Sorba Thomas shot and didn’t, allowing the rebound to go in for a goal. 5

Jamie Shackleton, 17

Bright and well-supported attacks. Had been responsible for Huddersfield Town’s lone meaningful threat in the first half. 6

Excellent work. Huddersfield’s threat to the Leeds backline was neutralised. 7

In general, I am unconcerned. After Rodon went off, his decision-making seemed a little more erratic. 7

Sam Byram, 25

Excellent. Had little to do in defence, but really let free on attack and was always an important outlet wide left. 7

Ethan Ampadu 4

As he cut off most of the service lines they tried to find in getting out of their own third, he helped to keep United’s collective foot on the away side’s throat. 7

Glen Kamara, No. 8

Added dynamism to the midfield and posed questions to

He accomplished his objectives admirably. Pace was on fire and provided Leeds with the final ball through for attempts on goal. The game was quiet after the break because the replacements disrupted the rhythm. 8

7 Joel Piroe Proved to be a handy link man in a mass of bodies when Leeds were at their best in the first half, but he was never quite at the cutting edge of things, especially in the second half when he faded out of the game. 6

Summerville Crysencio No. 10

Outstanding. An almost-perfect first-half performance included two goals and two assists. He’s been robbed of the opportunity to build on it with an early withdrawal while he deals with that shoulder ailment. A fantastic seven days. 9

Georginio Rutter, 24

Leeds slipped out of rhythm after the interval as the game was won, but they were fantastic in the first half. At times, vision, flair, pass weight, and first touch are unplayable. 8


28 Darlow, Karl

2 Luke Ayling (on for Byram after 59 minutes)

At times, he didn’t appear to be at ease. I wasn’t given any difficult questions, but I was sucked out of position and made some terrible passes. 5
