Well, it was a goal fest in this game, as Leeds demolish Newcastle which a lot of fans would enjoy. Leeds showed that despite their inconsistency, their counter attack is better than any other. This was a dominant message to other teams,” you put us one step back, we move 2 steps forward.”
Newcastle – coming into the game after back-to-back wins but with coronavirus still affecting some of their squad and staff – started brightly, with Isaac Hayden mis-hitting a cross onto the roof of the Leeds net. But from around five minutes in, the hosts took control of the ball, with Liam Cooper testing Karl Darlow from a corner before Jack Harrison, Raphinha, and Mateusz Klich sent efforts off target. However, there was nowhere to hide from Leeds counter attacks as they scored 3 goals in 15 minutes, an outstanding feat! However Newcastle’s defending in the last 15 minutes cost them the game.
The hosts – who had lost their last two and only won one of their first six home league games – dominated throughout the contest but needed Patrick Bamford (35) to pop up with his ninth goal of the season after Jeff Hendrick (26) had tucked in against the run of play.Leeds weren’t to be denied their deserved victory, though, and Stuart Dallas (77) and Ezgjan Alioski (85) finished clinically before the impressive Harrison blasted in from the edge of the box to wrap up the three points in style. This was a great performance from Leeds.
That is it for this review. Leeds wrap up the 3 points in quite some style. Next up is Fullham Vs Brighton. Till then Goodbye and take care.
