Here’s what our YEP Jury have needed to say on the superb 4-3 success in opposition to the Cherries.

This recreation can solely be described as thrilling however deeply unsatisfying. United’s early lead was brokered by the energetic Crysencio Summerville and transformed from the spot by Rodrigo. The euphoria was washed away after solely 4 minutes as we witnessed the acquainted sight of the Leeds’ protection being torn aside but once more.

On 19 minutes, Philip Billing added to Marcus Tavernier’s lead and, by half-time, the November gloom had descended on Elland Highway because the Whites appeared to supply little or no resistance. Simply after half-time, the sport seemed to be misplaced as Dominic Solanke added a 3rd purpose for the Cherries. However Bournemouth have defensive frailties of their very own and, on the hour, Leeds began their comeback.

Sam Greenwood smashed dwelling a blistering volley from distance but in addition demonstrated how corners needs to be taken. Captain Liam Cooper scrambled one of many corners dwelling earlier than Willy Gnonto mesmerized the house crowd by preserving the ball at his ft for the size of the pitch earlier than releasing a perfectly-timed cross to Summerville to attain the winner and ship us all dwelling completely satisfied.

Man of the match: Crysencio Summerville

On bonfire night time we definitely had loads of ‘fireworks’ as Leeds got here from 3-1 all the way down to beat Bournemouth 4-3 with a purpose from man-of-the-moment Crysencio ‘Jimmy’ Summerville within the final minutes of a pulsating recreation at Elland Rd.

Jesse Marsch caught with the group that beat Liverpool however there was a change on the bench as Patrick Bamford was dominated out and Mateo Joseph, who had a superb scoring report with the under-21s, changed him on the bench. Each groups and their followers pre-game gave a respectful minute’s silence to those that had served and died for his or her nation in lots of conflicts. We’ll always remember their sacrifice.

Leeds tore into Bournemouth and have been rewarded when Summerville was introduced down. Rodrigo made it three objectives in three video games, slotting the penalty away to present them an early lead. Sadly, for the remainder of the half they have been second finest as Bournemouth equalized inside six minutes by Tavernier and have been forward with 20 performed, Billing following up a blocked effort and firing previous Meslier.

To be sincere, the guests had sufficient possibilities to finish the sport as a contest earlier than the break. Leeds knew they needed to impress within the second half. Gnonto changed the ineffective Jack Harrison, who struggled on the right-wing.

Sadly, Bournemouth made it 3-1 when goalscorer Tavernier skipped previous the Leeds protection and supplied Solanke an opportunity he did not miss. Boos rang out and the win over Liverpool appeared a really very long time in the past.

Marsch determined that contemporary legs in midfield have been wanted and he felt on Sam Greenwood, who has impressed together with his appearances from the bench.

He actually impressed when he curled in an excellent effort on 60 minutes to make it 3-2. Eight minutes later the followers could not consider their eyes as captain Liam Cooper headed Leeds degree from a Greenwood nook. Recreation on! Joe Gelhardt was introduced on for Rodrigo, who seemed spent, and the teen was concerned instantly, forcing Bournemouth backwards.

The winner got here from their nook, the ball was cleared to Gnonto who ran over 60 yards earlier than discovering Summerville with an excellent by ball. The teen didn’t disappoint and he crashed the ball into the web to make it 4-3.

On the finish, the gamers rightly obtained a standing ovation for an incredible fightback. Credit score the place credit score is due as they by no means gave up the struggle for the three factors. Standout gamers have been Sam Greenwood, Willy Gnonto and match winner Crysencio Summerville.

Man of the Match: Sam Greenwood, spectacular and an excellent purpose that began the struggle again.

Crikey; I assumed the jury had as soon as once more put the mockers on this with our unanimous Leeds win prediction! At 3-1 down it seemed that approach. Leeds had the absolute best begin with the early penalty however then gave up the lead cheaply inside a couple of minutes as we did at Anfield.

Our frail protection may but be our undoing this season if we won’t tighten up and but once more the Bournemouth equalizer got here from our protection being drawn in direction of the ball like moths to a flame; Tavernier free on the again publish.

Twelve minutes later, a easy ball excessive noticed Tavernier outpace Rasmus Kristensen to fireside at Meslier however then we have been all sleeping once more because the rebound was handed to Billing. OK, it was some end. Their third seemed to have killed us off and we did not cowl ourselves in glory with that one both!

The substitutes although saved the day; an excellent Sam Greenwood shot and an important nook by Sam that Coops transformed. Then an excellent run and cross from Willy Gnonto completed by our poacher supreme, Cree Summerville. We peered into the abyss once more at the moment however someway it got here good!

Males of the match: The younger weapons – Sam, Willy and Crysencio!

A recreation of two halves. Definitely entertaining. First 45 minutes, we have been defensively sloppy, disorganized, shambolic at occasions and off the tempo and 2-1 down flattered us – ought to have been three at the least.

Second 45 – unbelievable – however not excellent by any stretch of the creativeness. And a sloppy begin noticed us 3-1 in arrears. Issues needed to change. Credit score Jesse Marsch for the subs – Gnonto at HT for a poor Jack Harrison and Sam Greenwood later for an out of kinds Marc Roca.

The group performed a large half in proceedings as “get up and sing for Leeds” echoed round all 4 sides of the bottom. What an environment and sight – and it labored. Sam Greenwood hit a fantastic thing about a shot, which I adopted from my Kop viewpoint, curling into the web. Aim from the second he struck it!

Greenwood impressed the group and shortly supplied a nook help for Liam Cooper’s headed purpose. Willy Gnonto gave tempo and an excellent cross to help Summerville’s superbly-taken successful purpose. Together with a tireless Tyler Adams, these have been the standout performers.

Man of the match: Sam Greenwood.

I am positive my fellow jury members will agree with me once I say it is turning into more and more tough to sum Leeds United video games up in 180 phrases! The final three outcomes have been ridiculous however all for very totally different causes, and the Bournemouth end result may prime the lot.

At 1-3 down it might have been simple to sink into the mire and be swallowed by the discontent from the stands, however Jesse Marsch has put his religion in youth when he is wanted some inspiration on the sphere this season.

Crysencio Summerville, Sam Greenwood and Willy Gnonto have been closely concerned once more on Saturday, displaying week by week that they are turning into high quality choices. Saturday confirmed simply how beneficial three factors have been. With different outcomes going in opposition to them, Leeds have been again within the drop zone, however the win took them into mid-table forward of the worldwide break in per week’s time. Watching Leeds has by no means been simple however, even by their requirements, that is attending to be loads.

Man of the match: Wilfried Gnonto.
