It was a strange game from Leeds United tonight.
We can’t remember Patrick Bamford getting a touch, except for his disallowed goal, and Liam Cooper came closest to scoring, but defensively we were solid and kept Wolves from recording any big chances.
The goal, when it came, was ridiculously unlucky, a long-range punt from Adama Traore that came back off the post and in off the helpless Illan Meslier.
The goal stung Leeds into life a bit and we got to see Pablo Hernandez for the last 25 minutes, which was a relief, but Leeds just couldn’t the killer touch.
The big chance, when it came, fell to Helder Costa at the death and he messed it up.
We’re going to put it down to Kalvin Phillips again, or rather the lack of. That’s five in a row we’ve lost without him.
Whatever Bielsa does, he just can’t find a different glue to hold the team together.
And, when Phillips doesn’t play, many other Leeds players look way off their best.
It was Jack Harrison’s turn tonight. The winger is incredibly frustrating. When he’s at his best he’s unplayable, but he doesn’t seem able to bring his A-game to the table consistently enough.
He wasn’t even on his B-game tonight, miss-controlling the ball, making poor passes and delivering aimless crosses – he was unable to get anything going in an attacking sense.
It didn’t help that Rodrigo is missing too and after a bright five minutes, Tyler Roberts faded away.
It looked for the world like it was going to be a 0-0 from the first-half but, just like in the reverse fixture, Wolves nicked it with a lucky goal yet again.
We kept hoping Jackie would find a spark of something but it wasn’t to be and he was eventually hooked after 80. minutes.
It’s annoying as it felt like Wolves were there for the taking this evening.
Here are the best reactions to Jack Harrison’s frustrating display…
Jackie is having a stinker tonight, in case you hadn’t spotted it #lufc
