Rodrigo – a fleeting presence but he made some good runs from midfield 7

Jack Harrison – scored the winning goal 8

Joe Gelhardt - thought he had opened the scoring, but VAR spotted he was a fraction offside 7


Pascal Struijk (for Gelhardt, 70) – brought on to stabilise things 5

Mateusz Klich (for Greenwood, 85) – gave Leeds some important oomph from midfield as he changed tack 6
