Leeds United: Fans slate Liam Cooper following Palace defeat

Leeds United: Fans slate Liam Cooper following Palace defeat - Leeds United News

Leeds United did not have a great day in the Premier League on Saturday as they lost 4-1 to Crystal Palace. The overall team performance was not good but many fans have been slating Liam Cooper for how he played as an individual.

Leeds were somewhat unlucky as a big VAR decision did not go their way. However the defender, who recently returned from injury, struggled to compete against a Palace attack containing Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze.

He picked up a 6.7 rating (SofaScore) as he lost three ground duels and aerial duels. He also made two fouls, was yellow carded, and lost possession 16 times.

The 29-year-old captain returned from injury last Monday against Leicester City. In the two games in which he has returned, Marcelo Bielsa’s side have now shipped eight goals. This has seen many fans suggest that the top division is a bit too difficult for the Scotsman, with one highlighting that he is ‘struggling’

The fixtures now get quite difficult for Leeds, as they face Arsenal and Everton, and Bielsa has a big decision to make on whether Cooper should start in those games.

Here is what Leeds fans have said following Cooper’s performance

Cooper, Ayling and Alioski not up to this level. Give the ball away too often and get caught by good movement of opposition strikers. Meslier also exposed too often hence conceded 8 in 2 games #lufc
