Leeds United beat Sheffield United with a thumping 2-1 victory on Saturday at Elland Road. Both Leeds and Sheffield arrived in good form, having secured victories in their previous matches. Leeds were keen to hang onto their position at the top of league and extend their winning run, following a 2-1 victory against Fulham. Sheffield, on the other hand, had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 1-0 victory against Aston Villa. As things stand, Leeds are in 10th place on the table and has 42 points while Sheffield sit in 20th with 14 points after 30 matches.

It was an impressive opening from Leeds, thanks to Jack Harrison finding the net at the 12 minute mark. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Ben Osborn equalised for The Blades just before half-time. The score at half time was 1-1.

Leeds started the second half with an intensified spirit, with an early calamitous own goal from Phil Jagielka in the 49th minute, leaving the final score at 2-1.

For Leeds, Rodrigo Moreno, Mateusz Klich and Robin Koch, came on for George Baldock, Oliver Norwood, Jayden Bogle and Oliver McBurnie. Sheffield replaced Ethan Ampadu, Oliver Burke, Rhian Brewster and John Egan with George Baldock, Oliver Norwood, Jayden Bogle and Oliver McBurnie.

There were bookings for Rodrigo Moreno from Leeds, and John Lundstram and David McGoldrick, for Sheffield.

Leeds will next travel to Manchester City, while Sheffield will face Arsenal at home.
