Leeds United crashed to a disappointing 2-0 defeat in their Premier League against West Ham on Monday evening.

Tyler Roberts and Patrick Bamford both had goals disallowed in the opening 10 minutes at the London Stadium, and from then, it went downhill.
West Ham then capitalised on their 30 minutes of dominance by scoring twice and taking the game away from the Whites.
In the second half, Bamford missed big chances, Rodrigo and Raphinha also could have scored as Leeds bombarded the goal of Lukasz Fabianski.
