MOT Super Fans pick Leeds Man of the Match in win v Crystal Palace
Leeds United cruised to a 2-0 victory on Monday evening in their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.
Jack Harrison and Patrick Bamford sealed the three points at Elland Road, although it should have been many more on the evening.
It was the perfect revenge for the 4-1 defeat in the reverse fixture at Selhurst Park, as the Whites controlled the game from minute one to the last.
This was possibly the best we have seen Leeds all season.
Yes, they missed plenty of chances, but the Whites were never in danger and completely dominated a side that never seems to be in trouble in the Premier League.
Roy Hodgson had no answers to Marcelo Bielsa, who appears to have even got the best back out of Mateusz Klich in midfield in the absence of Rodrigo.
There has to be a special mention for the defence too, who were certainly back to their best, even from set-pieces as they easily earned that clean-sheet.
Palace only had an expected goal total of 0.65 last night, and most of that will have come from that single Ebrechi Eze chance that was blazed over – they were frustrated for the entire game with ease.
We asked our MOT Super Fans to select their Man of the Match winner from the victory, and plenty of players picked up mentions.
Having said that, there was a clear winner and that was Raphinha, with the Brazilian quickly becoming a fan favourite at Elland Road.
Here’s what they said…
