Leeds United and Sunderland shared the points in a 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

Sunderland went ahead through a Paddy McNair volley but Pablo Hernandez rescued a point for Leeds in the final 20 minutes of the game.

The game had plenty of chances with Leeds hitting the woodwork three times and Sunderland hit the woodwork once.

Sunderland created more chances and they had just under 50% of their 20 attempts on target.

Leeds managed to have just 25% of their 16 attempts on target.

Leeds enjoyed more of the possession in the game with 55% of the share of possession.

Sunderland earned more than double the amount of corners with the visitors having 13 to Leeds 6.

Discipline was once again a problem for Leeds. Gaetano Berardi was shown his third red card of the season late in the game and they have now received eight red cards this season.

Leeds also had three players booked with Pontus Jansson being shown his 11th yellow card of the season and debutant Paudie O’Connor picking up a yellow card on his debut. Ezgjan Alioski was shown his 6th yellow card of the season.
