Leeds United and Huddersfield went head-to-head this weekend.
Leeds United’s three-match winning run came to an abrupt end this weekend as they crashed to a 4-1 defeat against Huddersfield Town at Elland Road.
Things started well when winger Stuart Dallas put the Whites ahead midway through the first half after Nehki Wells had earlier seen his penalty attempt saved by Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri.
At that point it seemed things were going the hosts’ way but a 41st-minute goal from Mark Hudson brought Huddersfield level and second-half goals from Harry Bunn, Karim Matmour and Wells gave the visitors a comfortable victory.
Leeds went into the game having defeated Bolton Wanderers, Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers earlier this month so it was somewhat surprising that manager Steve Evans opted to rest two players who had been key during that time – Toumani Diagouraga and Lewis Cook.
Still, it was up to the players who were picked to perform and in the second half they were blown away with midfielder Alex Mowatt coming in for particular criticism.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Leeds fans thought of Mowatt’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Thought Alex Mowatt was an absolute joke, disgusting performance #lufc— callum cox (@callum_cox98) March 19, 2016
Remember when Mowatt last had two good games in a row for Leeds? No, me neither #lufc— Chris Purdy (@ChrisPurdy3) March 19, 2016
Botaka and Carayol should be on either wing and play Dallas in a CAM role because Mowatt quite clearly isn't good enough #lufc— BROTAKA (@ohhmiijosh_) March 19, 2016
I like Mowatt but he doesn't fit the system and hasn't all season. Play a winger on the wing. #lufc— Neil Collins (@NeilCollufc) March 19, 2016
I give the Italians enough criticism when they play bad so it's only fair to say Mowatt was dire today. #LUFC— Josh Grainger (@joshgrainger16) March 19, 2016
Alex Mowatt today was horrific, as were many others. Every time we lose it only ever seems to be berardi that has any passion #lufc— Jack Douglas (@jack_dougi) March 19, 2016
