Leeds v Southampton - Interesting facts after the event.

Post by 1964white »

No English player has scored more Premier League goals this season than Patrick Bamford (13, level with Harry Kane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin).

Patrick Bamford has been directly involved in more goals in all competitions under Marcelo Bielsa than any other Leeds player (48 - 39 goals, 9 assists).

Tyler Roberts has registered two assists in his last three league appearances for Leeds, as many as he managed in his previous 40.

Stuart Dallas has netted five Premier League goals this season for Leeds, only once before managing more in a single league campaign (6 in 2014/15 for Brentford), also the most by a Northern Irishman in the Premier League since Gareth McAuley (six) in 2016-17.

Raphinha's strike was Leeds' first direct free-kick goal in the Premier League March 2004, when Stephen McPhail scored against Manchester City.

Leeds have scored 43 goals in the Premier League this season, last netting more after 25 games of a top-flight campaign in 1991-92 when they won the First Division (48).

Southampton have lost seven of their last eight Premier League games (D1), after suffering just two defeats in their 15 before that (W8 D5).

Leeds have kept clean sheets in consecutive home Premier League games for the first time since February 2003 (a run of 4).

Southampton have failed to score in four of their last five away Premier League games, as many goalless performances as they managed in their previous 31 on the road.

Had that Bamford goal stood it would have been 3 assists in 3 for Tyler and should have been more maybe. Plus his was the shot that would have hit the net at Lorimer speed if the defenders face hadn't gotten in the way plus I love that first time shot just wide, great skill to pull that off while aiming for just inside the post rather than straight at the goal keeper

Should have hit the target imo!

Wasn't impressed with his first-half shot over the bar laid on a plate for him by Raphinha though!

Who'd have thought with 13 games to play this season

We'd be one point behind Spurs

We'd have won as many games as Liverpool.

And the 5th highest scorers in the PL.
