Meslier 6 - Not much to do but did drop a simple cross
Shackleton 8 - Excellent first half, quieter second
Firpo 7.5 - Good performance and got better after a nervous start
Cooper 6.5 - Quiet game defensively but still a couple of errors he got away with
Llorente 8.5 - Great reactions for the goal and solid in a defence that wasn't tested much
Phillips 7 - Typical Kalvin game, some poor crossing/passing but a rock in midfield
Dallas 6.5 - Profligate, needed too long and maybe the reason why we only scored the once
Klich 8.5 - Masterful, best game since last season, looking almost fully fit now, some of the imaginative runs and passing were great to behold
Raphinha 8.5 - Dominant first half, quieter second, he plays high risk forward passes and a few were overhit
James 8 - His pace scared Watford stiff, stone cold pen against him not given and best performance in a Leeds shirt
Rodrigo 6.5 - Did ok

Roberts 8 - Loved watching this cameo, so involved the last 13 minutes and won 3 corners and a critical foul, several completed runs and that shot which hit the bar...
21/22 team - Meslier - Ayling - Firpo- Koch - Llorente - Phillips - Dallas - Raphinha - Harrison - Klich - Rodrigo

Meslier 6 - quiet game from him this week had very little to do, but could have cost us 2 points with that mishandled cross.
Shackleton 7 - lively as ever, got some good tackles in - very promising performance from the youngster
Llorente 9 MoM - excellent defensively and popped up with a very well taken goal
Coops 7 - solid enough
Firpo 8 - vast improvement over recent outings needs to keep this standard going
Phillips 7.5 - does the simple things so well and is so strong in the tackle and when shielding the ball
Raphinha 8.5 - the anticipation lifts every time he gets the ball - scares the living daylights out of defenders
Klich 7.5 - getting back to his best
Dallas 6.5 - still not 100% for me
James 8 - his pace is his main asset and used it well today, Jack might struggle to get back into the team at this rate
Rodrigo 6 - still not convincing for me, I’ve said before that he seems to lack pace and it showed again today
Roberts 7.5 - decent little cameo today

Meslier 6 - Not much to do for a change. Dropped easy cross
Shackleton 7.5 - Very good first half then much quieter in second
Firpo 7.5 - Didn-t have much to do defensively but provided another option going forward
Cooper 6.5 - Quiet game defensively did what he had to do without much fuss
Llorente 8 - Great goal, a few risky moments in defence but overall had a very good game. We look so much better with him in the team.
Phillips 7 - Not quite up to his usual high standards with a few misplaced passes.
Dallas 6 Wasted several good shooting opportunities. Looks a shadow of the player he was last season
Klich 7.5 - Looking back to his best with some good passing and intelligent runs
Raphinha 8.5 - Still looks our biggest attacking threat. A bit inconsistent with his crossing but has developed good understanding with Rodrigo
James 7.5 - Brilliant first half with and without the ball, fantastic pace but still lacking that end product
Rodrigo 7 Some clever runs but his control let him down on occasion. Lacking pace to be a real threat

Roberts 7.5 - Thought he had a good game for the 15 mins or so he was on the pitch. Some good crosses and was desperately unlucky with the effort which hit the bar.

Meslier 7 - Have a feeling the drop was a result of being distracted by the whistle. Still.... Otherwise solid with good distribution
Shackleton 8 - Commentators here in the US said Watford's big threat was on the wings. Wouldn't know it from the way Shacks and Firpo played
Firpo 8 - Best game for us by a long way
Cooper 7 - He's been better, but he's been worse. Very solid in the back today.
Llorente 8.5 - A couple of poor decisions aside, pure clas at the back and showed a striker's touch for his goal. MOTM
Phillips 7 - Not his best for us by any means, but showed up at the end
Dallas 6 - Scattershot
Klich 8 - If only he could learn to get his knee over the ball when shooting. Fine game.
Raphinha 8.5 - Living proof of Heisenberg's principle. This particle shows up everywhere.
James 8 - Danny Rose will have nightmares about him. Had to play five yards off James in the open field. Outstanding game.
Rodrigo 6.5 - Twice in the first half his heavy first touches cost us goals. Raphinha made a couple of beautiful passes Rodrigo's way where he was expecting Rodrigo to mave as Bamford does, but it didn't happen.

Roberts 7 - Played very well, but only for 15 minutes. Won corners, and very unlucky not to score. Would have graded higher had he spent more time on the pitch at that level.
Struijk - n/a

Meslier 6 not a lot for him to do but let’s catch or punch those crosses not pat them
Shackleton 7.8 lost 0.1 for that foul throw towards the end a professional player should never foul throw but otherwise he was brilliant
Llorente 8 So pleased he got that goal and completed the 90 mins
Coops 7 excellent game today overall
Firpo 7 each game he gets better, looks like we have a player
Phillips 7 solid couple of loose passes
Raphinha 7.7 every time he gets on the ball, the fans get excited and rightly so as often something happens
Klich 7 starting to find himself again
Dallas 6.5 when he’s back fully into the game the opposition is gonna suffer
James 7.7 he is rapid and Jackie is going to struggle to get back into the team. Two games now were if he’d been wearing a red shirt a penalty would have been given
Rodrigo 6.5 excellent in the first half, disappeared mainly in the second, would love him to score

Subs
Roberts 7 thought he was very busy when he came on and how unlucky is he not to have scored, that would have been a candidate for goal of the season. He needs regular football and he’s unlikely to get it here should be allowed to go out on loan.
Struijk 6 his jog onto the pitch was outstanding

Meslier 7 - solid bar the dropped catch
Shackleton - 7.5 bundle of energy linked well with Raph
Llorente - 8 cool calm and collected
Cooper - 7.5 organised well - pulled Llorente out of the clouds when he was daydreaming
Firpo - 7.5 = settling in now
Phillips - 7.5 - pulled the strings - lost very little
Raphinha - 8 improvisation is superb. some passes noone else can see nevermind do
Klich - 8.5 I am sure he was 6 foot 4 when he joined - he has run himself ragged in the past seasons linking play beautifully
Dallas - 7 - solid but not outstanding - could have scored 3
James - 8 Pace is frightening - dribble in second half shows he is settling in
Rodrigo - 6 His touch made Becchio look like Messi and we know his second touch was a tackle
Subs:
Roberts - 7 looked more confident today. Perhaps he is about to blossom
