Leeds United moved to the top of the Championship table with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Jack Harrison’s goal proved to be enough for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as they moved to the summit, although that could change if West Brom were to beat Bristol City on Wednesday.
Leeds dominated the possession statistics on the night, but didn’t have it all their own way as Reading looked lively when they did go forward.
One Royals player that stood out in the defeat was Ovie Ejaria, who made Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips look like any other Championship player.
His close ball control, and quick feet were too much for Phillips to handle at times, and the on-loan Liverpool man was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet on the night.

Ejaria is set to join the Royals permanently in the summer, and Reading fans will be delighted by his impressive performances so far this term.
Plenty of Leeds United fans took to social media to issue their thoughts on Ejaria’s performance.

Might get slagged off for this but I don't care, Phillips wasnt great tonight and their Midfielder, Ejaria, was superb and run him ragged!
Phillips MUST be taken off set pieces too, he hardly ever makes one count.
I adore Phillips so there's no scapegoating here 👍#lufc
