Leeds United beat Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town 2-0 in the Championship with one player managing to fly under the radar with their performance.

Pablo Hernandez then ensured that all three points returned to Elland Road as he planted a header past Kamil Grabara after a cross from Jack Harrison.
Kiko Casilla was shining for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as he made three saves (via WhoScored) including two saves from Steve Mounie and a point-blank header from Elias Kachunga.
Alioski put in an all-round performance in the middle of the park for the Whites, adding the most tackles and the joint-most interceptions to his opening goal.
However, it was Jack Harrison who proved to be the unsung hero for the Yorkshire side as his attacking input helped ensure three points returned home.
The Manchester City loanee was at the heart of the creativity, playing the second-most key passes (3). He also proved too hot to handle for the Huddersfield defence as he was the joint-second most fouled player for Leeds.
Leeds Live agreed with this assessment of the 23-year-old’s performances as they gave the player a six out of 10, commenting on his ability to provide an option for his teammates.
They said: “Another assist for the collection with the second goal. Not always at the heart of the action, but always provided an option and outlet for his team-mates.
“Deserved a second assist for one wonderful cross-field pass into Hernandez’s path on the run.” (Source: Leeds Live)
