Whites win Yorkshire derby
A Phil Jagielka own goal four minutes into the second half gave Leeds a five point cushion between themselves in 11th place and Palace in twelfth (Roy Hodgson's men have a tea time KO at Goodison park later). It's a good thing too, as Leeds next three opponents are Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester Utd.
Leeds took the lead after just twelve minutes. Dallas hustled the ball off Stevens, and into the path of Tyler Roberts. The Welsh man squares the ball to Raphinha deep into Blades territory on the right hand side. Raphinha makes a darting run through the penalty area before rolling back a cross for Harrison fired home his seventh goal of the season, one more than he scored last season in the Championship. It was also the Brazilian's 12th contribution (six goals and six assists) this term, from only 23 appearances.
Paul Heckingbottom's team were level on he stroke of half time. McBurnie diagonal shot was heading off target until Ben Osborne made contact at the far post. This was Sheffield Utd's only shot on target throughout the entire game. Leeds continued to boss the game in the second half but were unable to extend their scoreline despite having 23 shots, mainly due to the impressive Aaron Ramsdale between the sticks.
Leeds made loss of £62m last season
Phil Hay revealed over the weekend that Leeds lost a staggering 62m during the financial period July 1, 2019 to July 31, 2020. Some of it was was beyond the clubs control.

Leeds had an overall turnover of 54m but their total expenses were £108m. Their wage bill was a whopping £78m. Thank goodness we got promoted when we did! Imagine our financial status if we hadn't gone up. It doesn't bare thinking about!
