Leeds: Bamford, Cooper and Aaronson struggle vs Palace

Leeds: Bamford, Cooper and Aaronson struggle vs Palace -Leeds United News

Leeds United fell to defeat against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon to make it five wins without a victory in the Premier League for Jesse Marsch’s side. 

The Whites started promisingly at Selhurst Park and took the lead after Brenden Aaronson’s shot led to Pascal Struijk netting the opener. However, Odsonne Edouard equalised with Palace’s first real attack and Eberechi Eze earned the hosts all three points in the second half.

The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who Leeds’ three worst outfield performers were on the day to have featured for at least 60 minutes.

Liam Cooper: 6.1/10

Cooper was the worst outfield performer, ending with a rating of 6.1/10. The captain gave away a free kick for Palace’s equaliser and was done by Eze for the winner.

Statistically, the Scot lost five of his nine duels, gave possession away on 18 occasions and only completed two of his nine attempted long balls.

Brenden Aaronson: 6.4/10

Some may be surprised that Aaronson was Leeds’ second worst-performer after his run and shot led to the opener.

However, playing from the right, Aaronson lost the ball 14 times and was also second-best in 10 of his 14 duels. The attacker also failed to make a key pass or complete a long ball.

Patrick Bamford: 6.5/10

Bamford struggled on his return to the starting XI and lasted 62 minutes before being replaced by Crycensio Summerville.

The centre-forward had a golden opportunity to double the lead in the first half and lost two duels, gave possession away on nine occasions, failed to make a key pass and had just 26 touches.
