Leeds United's resurgence did not last long, with a late David Brooks' strike ensuring Sheffield United left Elland Road with all three points on Friday evening.

The Whites had gone into the fixture with a recent 3-0 victory against Bristol City under their belt. However Thomas Christiansen's side could not make it back-to-back league wins, losing 2-1 with their consolation strike coming from Kalvin Phillips.

Leeds again opted to play three midfielders, with Ronaldo Vieira remaining in the starting XI after his impressive showing a week earlier. However, this time the Blades won out, moving to the top of the Championship in the process.

Pennington looked solid during pre-season before an early injury struck, but questions have been asked since he returned to the fold, especially with Pontus Jansson regularly overlooked despite his outstanding form last season.

There is no doubting the Leeds loanee's quality, yet he has to show consistency over the next few months to ensure his temporary club continue to challenge for a top-six finish.
