Leeds: Harrison, Phillips and Rodrigo struggle against Leicester

Leeds: Harrison, Phillips and Rodrigo struggle against Leicester -Leeds United

Leeds United drew 1-1 with Leicester City on Sunday in an end-to-end Premier League encounter. 

The Whites took the lead through Raphinha’s free kick after an entertaining start at Elland Road, but then conceded 10 seconds following the restart with Harvey Barnes curling the ball past Illan Meslier.

Ademola Lookman had the ball in the hosts’ net in the second half but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review, meaning that the teams ended all-square.

How many signings should Leeds make in January?









Jack Harrison – 6.2/10

Leeds’ worst-rated starter was Harrison, losing possession a whopping 21 times. The 24-year-old was making his eighth Premier League start of the campaign but is still awaiting his first goal involvement.

Harrison lost 12 of his 18 duels, failed to complete an accurate cross and missed a big chance to put the Whites back in front during the second half.

Kalvin Phillips – 6.4/10

Phillips is next on the list, ending with an average rating of 6.4/10. He lost the ball on 16 occasions, was second best in 12 of his 15 duels and didn’t complete a cross or tackle.

The England international also committed five fouls and ended with a pass completion rate of 76% as he fell well below his best at Elland Road this afternoon.

Rodrigo – 6.5/10

Along with Adam Forshaw, who was substituted and therefore had slightly less time to prove his worth this afternoon, Rodrigo was Leeds’ joint-third worst performer today.

He gave the ball away on 18 occasions, lost four duels and failed to make a tackle all afternoon. The forward also struggled offensively, not registering a cross throughout the game.
