“Got a good feeling about this season”: Some Leeds fans react to 1-0 win vs Swansea City + Match Report

Leeds United v Swansea City Report: Swansea City Match Report

Swansea City continued their good start to the season by beating Leeds United 1-0 away at Elland Road after a late goal by Wayne Routledge. 

This win takes Steve Cooper’s men at the top of the table, two points ahead of second-placed Charlton Athletic in a surprising turn of events in the Championship today.

If we talk about the game in detail, Leeds United were on top for most of the time, but their final product in the opposition box wasn’t up to the standard required.

Mike van der Hoorn almost turned a strayed Stuart Dallas into his own net, while Ezgjan Alioski and Patrick Bamford missed good chances to put the home side ahead.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men almost had the lead just before half-time, when returning captain Liam Cooper headed his effort onto the crossbar from a corner. He blazed his rebound over the bar as well.

The story was pretty much the same in the second half, with Bamford missing a good chance and Pablo Hernandez brought out a very good save from Swansea stopper Freddie Woodman.

Substitute Eddie Nketiah, who is on loan from Arsenal for the season, missed two great opportunities to become a Elland Road hero one more time.

Eventually, these missed chances came back to haunt the Whites, when they failed to clear a corner in the 90th minute, to allow Routledge to fire in a low effort into the back of the net and hand Swansea an unexpected win.

Here’s how the Swansea fans are reacting after this game:
