Swansea City put in their best performance of the season last night against Leeds United, holding the Yorkshire side to a 2-2 draw.
Graham Potter’s side twice took to lead through Oli McBurnie, but were pegged back by a resilient Leeds side, who had Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez on the scoresheet.
There was no doubt that McBurnie was Swansea’s standout performer, with the clinical striker the latest feature of our FLW Spotlight:
Over the course of 90 minutes, McBurnie scored two goals. The first of which was a prodded effort that was pushed into the corner by Leeds goalkeeper, Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
If the Leeds stopper could’ve done better with McBurnie’s first, he couldn’t with his second. The Scottish striker met a cross from the left, directing a looping header into the far corner.
Other areas of McBurnie’s game were also superb, with the 22-year-old making two tackles, as well as winning six aerial duels.
In possession, the striker made 33 passes, which came at a success rate of 61%.
McBurnie looked like a man on a mission last night, turning in his best performance of the season so far.
He caused Leeds’ makeshift defence so many problems, with his willingness to run matched by a strong physical presence.
The striker’s second goal was pure class, with McBurnie really showing what a threat he can be when crosses are put into the box.
It’s been a solid start to the season for the Swans, who will be hoping to challenge for promotion back to the Premier League.
With McBurnie brimming with confidence, there’s every chance they will be in the mix for promotion.
