Brazilian star Raphinha scored in the first half and did well during his time on the pitch.
The winger took four shots of which three were on target, played three key passes, had a pass accuracy of 70.6%, took 51 touches, made two tackles, and put in five crosses.
The 24-year-old was substituted in the second half.
After the match, Leeds head coach Bielsa said that Raphinha suffered a hip injury.
Bielsa told Leeds Live about Raphinha: “He has a problem in his hip.”
Worrying for Leeds United?
Raphinha is one of the best players in the Premier League and is a key figure at Leeds.
It is always worrying when a key player at a club gets injured.
It is not clear at the moment how bad the injury is for the 24-year-old, and Leeds fans will hope that he recovers soon and does not have to miss any game.
Raphinha has scored two goals in five Premier League appearances for Leeds so far this season.
The Leeds no.10 scored six goals and provided nine assists in 26 league starts for the West Yorkshire outfit last season.
