Leeds United scrapped a point away from Burnley in a 1-1 draw, with Patrick Bamford scoring the equaliser with four minutes to go.

Not such a pretty performance, here are the ratings:

Illan Meslier (7): Made a few good saves - particularly with Mee’s header just before the Burnley goal. No problems with his distribution and aggression from set pieces.

Luke Ayling (6): Played right-wing-back for most of the game before slotting into the back-three. Always works hard, but struggled for offensive impact.

Diego Llorente; Liam Cooper; Pascal Struijk (6): There’s not much to say here - passed the ball pretty well and kept on top of things for the most part. Defended set-pieces particularly well.

Stuart Dallas (6.5): Put himself about as always - provided a bit more support in an attacking sense than Ayling but struggled for actual impact. Supported the midfield well.

Kalvin Phillips (7): Battled hard in the midfield, showing his quality in that position over the likes of Koch/Struijk in that position. Perhaps his partnership in the middle with Rodrigo in a 3-3-1-3 made things a bit more difficult.

Rodrigo (5): Very slack passing in the first half. Created Leeds’ best chance ahead of half-time but overall didn’t fit too well in midfield when man-to-man.

Harrison (5): Lacked cutting edge and any real sort of danger, although he found himself isolated more often than not on the left side.

Raphinha (6): Didn’t show his best today either, but still had an air of danger about him. Finally showed that bit of quality late-on in the build-up to Leeds’ equaliser.

Bamford (6.5): Snatching the equaliser was huge, but he was also quite isolated throughout the second half - with very few chances coming his way. Still did his bit to support the midfield, was just a quiet one for him.

Subs:

Jamie Shackleton (6.5): Wasn’t on for particularly long but provided the ball in for Bamford’s equaliser. Also added an energy boost on the right side that helped get things going late on.

Tyler Roberts (5): Not much of an impact after coming on, but will likely make a case throughout the season to challenge/displace Rodrigo in the midfield.
