|Sheffield United||Leeds United|
It’s been a mixed start to life back in the Premier League for Leeds United and today’s familiar clash with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United side was probably going to be no different.
Three games played, including our Cup defeat, has us winning one from three so far – but none of the games have been dull and they definitely haven’t lacked goals.
It was a lively old start as well, Leeds had the better possession but the hosts created more chances – with only two shots apiece on goal though, it was a pretty even affair going into the half time break.
With the scores tied, manager Marcelo Bielsa swapped Rodrigo for Roberts for the second half and we largely continued from where we’d left off, but with a touch more threat in the final third.
We were definitely on top in the second period, but going into the final five minutes of the game we just couldn’t get that breakthrough despite some dodgy antics by Ramsdale between the sticks.
With a little over two minutes remaining on the clock though, Patrick Bamford used his head to make it count as he connected with a Jack Harrison cross.
1-0 and despite five minutes of injury time we also kept the clean sheet.
Massive victory for us given the season they had last year, all three points, so onto the next one – can we make it three on the spin?
