Leeds United travelled to the Den to take on Millwall earlier today in what eventually proved to be a tough encounter for Marcelo Bielsa’s side. The home side took the lead in the 55th minute, with Jed Wallace finding the back of the net.
The visitors were unable to carve out too many clear-cut chances and after toiling for much of the second half, Jack Harrison found the back of the net with a good strike from the edge of the box to earn a point for his side.
Here are the Leeds United player ratings from their 1-1 draw against Millwall.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell 6/10
Millwall lacked quality while going forward and Peacock-Farrell was hardly tested. However, the custodian showed a great deal of confidence while dealing with the air balls.
Barry Douglas 6/10
Although he made a lot of attacking forays, he didn’t have the desired output and was caught by Millwall’s attackers a few times as well.
Liam Cooper 7/10
Cooper dealt with Steve Morison and Lee Gregory’s treats exceptionally well. He was calm and composed at the back and read the game meticulously.
Pontus Jansson 5/10
Jansson looked sluggish more often than not and he took a lot of risks while the ball was at his feet. Although he was good in the air, he needs to be a lot more resilient in the upcoming fixtures.
Luke Ayling 6/10
The full-back couldn’t really bomb forward as he was kept in check by Millwall.
Kalvin Phillips 6/10
His passes from the deeper areas helped to get the team moving forward and his physical presence proved to be a handy asset for the team.
Jack Harrison 6/10
Apart from the goal he scored, Harrison had a forgettable time on the pitch. He struggled to make his presence felt and was invisible most of the time.
Samuel Saiz 7/10
Saiz was relentless and was arguably the engine room for Bielsa’s side against the Lions today. He led by example and showed incredible work rate earlier today.
Mateusz Klich 5/10
He hardly had an impact in the game and quite justifiably, he was the first player to be subbed off the pitch by Bielsa.
Ezgjan Alioski 5/10
It proved to be another woeful and uneventful afternoon for Alioski. On plenty of occasions, the Macedonian was caught offside and he wasted a lot of crosses and deliveries.
Tyler Roberts 6/10
Roberts couldn’t really press well or even make the darting runs inside the box the way Bielsa would have liked. He also lacked the predatory instincts inside the box, something he’ll learn with more time on the pitch.
Lewis Baker 5/10
Passed the ball around pretty well after coming on.
Stuart Dallas 6/10
Dallas had one decent effort after cutting in but his shot was over the bar.
Adam Forshaw 6/10
The midfielder showed great grit and perseverance on the pitch after he replaced Phillips with around 15 minutes left on the clock.
