Leeds United drew 0-0 with Middlesbrough at Elland Road yesterday.
Leeds United drew 0-0 with Middlesbrough at Elland Road last night. Here are HITC’s player ratings.
Marco Silvestri - 7
A couple of nervy moments, but he generally dealt with everything well and made one excellent save from Jordan Rhodes in the closing stages.
Scott Wootton - 6
Dealt with crosses throughout, with his height being an advantage. Didn’t offer too much going forward, though.
Giuseppe Bellusci - 8
A rock in defence. Dealt with Rhodes’ threat superbly, and continued his fine form.
Liam Cooper - 8
Another strong performance from Cooper, who didn’t give Middlesbrough’s forwards an inch.
Charlie Taylor - 7
Did well going forward, and also coped defensively. Has dealt with every challenge thrown at him so far.
Liam Bridcutt - 7
Another combative performance from Bridcutt, who dictated the play in midfield. Has been a good addition from Steve Evans.
Toumani Diagouraga - 7
Appears to have settled into the team quickly, and was composed in possession throughout.
Stuart Dallas - 6
Tireless, as ever, but didn’t create too much. His best chance came from a headed opportunity in the first half.
Lewis Cook - 7
Evans felt Cook had been short of form lately, but he showed why he is so highly regarded last night.
Souleymane Doukara - 7
Continues to go from strength to strength. Was a constant menace to the Middlesbrough defence, and could feel unfortunate not get on the scoresheet.
Mirco Antenucci - 5
Didn’t get particularly involved in the game, and looks likely to be replaced in the line-up when Chris Wood returns to full fitness.
