Saturday’s Championship clash against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns turned into a specularly bad day for Leeds United.
Despite dominating the ball once again as is manager Marcelo Bielsa’s preferred style, we simply failed to do enough with it in the final third and losing 4-1, we only actually had three efforts on target.
There will certainly be frustrations and grumblings from some after that showing given the nature and the size of the loss, and we did blow the opportunity to return to the top of the Championship table – on the other hand, it’s only the third defeat of the 2018/19 campaign so fans shouldn’t get too carried away.
Given the poorer performance and the defeat, few Leeds players polled well on statistics website WhoScored but 33-year-old Pablo Hernandez did stand out for us – he was the only player to get a 7+ rating on the day.
Liam Cooper, Barry Douglas, Pontus Jansson and Samu Saiz completed the top five performers on the day for what it’s worth.
