Leeds United strolled past Watford with a 1-0 win on Saturday at Elland Road. Leeds arrived at the game looking pick up points after losing their last game 2-1 to West Ham United. Watford, on the other hand, had managed to pick up a single point in their encounter with Newcastle United. As the table looks today, Leeds are in 16th place, with 6 points from 7 matches, while Watford sit in 14th, with 7 points from 7.

Leeds started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, with Diego Llorente finding the net in the 18th minute, to take a 1-0 lead into half time. With both teams struggling to produce anything meaningful in the second half though, the game ended 1-0.

For Leeds, Tyler Roberts and Pascal Struijk, came on for Stuart Dallas and Mateusz Klich. Watford brought on Ken Sema, Joao Pedro and Christian Kabasele, to replace Joshua King, Ozan Tufan and Francisco Sierralta.

The referee booked three players from Watford, Kiko Femenia, Ismaila Sarr and Emmanuel Dennis.
