Leeds United player ratings as Fleetwood Town overturn Charlie Cresswell’s opener to win 2-1 – Beren Cross


Leeds United (4-4-2)

1 Dani van den Heuvel – five

Punished for hesitating with the ball at his feet in the second half and saw the ball snatched from him for a tap-in. Had been a couple of other occasions where distribution let him down.

2 Cody Drameh – seven

Another solid display at both ends of the pitch for the right-back. Served up Max Dean a glorious chance with some great footwork cutting in from the right flank in the first half. Competed well with experienced opposition.

6 Nohan Kenneh – six

Switched off at times and needed Charlie Cresswell to sweep up and bail him out. Callum Morton had more than a few sniffs of goal as he got the better of Kenneh on the night.



Nohan Kenneh

5 Charlie Cresswell (c) – seven

One of the towering, powerful headers he is becoming known for to put the visitors ahead. Read the game well throughout the evening until a boot to his face ultimately saw him come off. Was in the dugout icing his forehead before full-time.

3 Liam McCarron – six

Got up and down the pitch well, but had a torrid time trying to deal with the rapid Shayden Morris.

10 Stuart McKinstry – seven

Had a shaky start with some misplaced passes and hassling from the opposition, but improved as the match wore on. Delivered the corner for Cresswell’s goal and regularly popped up in dangerous positions around the final third.

8 Jack Jenkins – six

A very useful workout for the central midfielder, who got plenty of miles into his legs around the Highbury pitch. Left doing more defensive work than he might have liked. Not quite the passing display we have seen from him in the past.

4 Adam Forshaw – seven

Another solid 45 minutes in the bank for Forshaw. Did see a few lovely long-range passes on the diagonal. Got around well, put his foot in and didn’t shirk any challenges.

11 Amari Miller – six

Did not shine as much as the other forwards in the side. Looked isolated at times wide left.



Crysencio Summerville

7 Crysencio Summerville – seven

In the absence of Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood, by far the most dangerous player in white. So quick, direct and agile with the ball at his feet. Goes down blind alleys sometimes, but generally a menace for the opposition. Just needs his raw talent refining and moulding.

9 Max Dean – six

Worked his socks off leading the line and the press, but a quiet and tough evening for the striker.

Substitutes

12 Elia Caprile

14 Lewis Bate (on for Forshaw h/t) – six

Ticked over in the middle, but did not stand out or get the opportunity to really show what Leeds have taken from Chelsea.

15 Charlie Allen

16 Kris Moore (on for Cresswell 60min) – six

Didn’t stand out after coming on for Cresswell.

17 Ian Poveda (on for Miller h/t) – six

Drew the most attention from the travelling fans, but failed to make any real impression on the match. Looked too lightweight again in some challenges.
