Leeds United

One winner and one loser from Leeds’ 2-2 draw with Swansea City



It was a tough evening for Leeds United in Swansea last night, with Marcelo Bielsa surely delighted to have left Wales with a valuable point in the bag following a 2-2 draw with Swansea City.  

Liam Cooper withdrew from Leeds’ starting XI prior to kick-off, meaning that Bielsa was forced to play without a recognised centre-back against Oli McBurnie, who has been in good form so far this season for the Swans.

The lack of a centre-back proved to be a problem, with McBurnie scoring twice on the night, handing the Swans the lead on two separate occasions.

Leeds responded through Kemar Roofe at the end of the first-half, with the 25-year-old turning in Jamie Shackleton’s low cross for his fourth goal in as many games.

Pablo Hernandez then equalised at the end of the second-half, with Leeds leaving Wales with a point after a battling display against a much-improved Swansea side.
