MOT Super Fans select Leeds MOTM in 2-1 win v Sheffield United
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Leeds United Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Elland Road and Thorp Arch.
Leeds United cruised to another three points in their Premier League clash against Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.
The Whites dominated their Yorkshire rivals at Elland Road, but only managed to win 2-1 as they once again squandered numerous chances.
Marcelo Bielsa made only one change with Liam Cooper coming into the side to replace the unfortunate Pascal Struijk in defence; not that there was much to do.
Despite having numerous chances, the expected goal tally of Leeds only stood at 2.53, according to the xG Philosophy.
The Whites dominated possession but were at their most dangerous when they quickly countered the Blades from their set-pieces.
Raphinha was often the source of most of those, but the finishing touch fell to the likes of Stuart Dallas rather than Patrick Bamford on most occasions.
Despite that wasting of chances, Leeds were resolute in defence and kept their Yorkshire rivals at arms’ length for the majority of the 90 minutes.
We asked our MOT Super Fans to select their Man of the Match from the dominant 2-1 victory and there were some differing answers.
Raphinha is a constant performer for the Whites, and he once again caught most of the headlines for his incredible outing against the Blades.
