Diego Llorente – not a night for Leeds defenders to show what they could do 6

Max Wober – one of the few things Leeds did not get right was avoiding injuries and the Austrian's full debut was cut short 6

Junior Firpo – did some good work down the left 7

Sam Greenwood – his distribution was very good 8

Tyler Adams – won the ball for the first goal but not a game where the midfield enforcer needed to do much 6

Marc Roca – the sort of game he should have shone in but did not 6

Rodrigo – very cool for his goal 7
