Leeds United picked up three crucial points at Vicarage Road thanks to Raphinha, Rodrigo, and Harrison’s goals. Raphinha became the first Leeds player to score in three consecutive games against Everton since Peter Lorimer. In our opinion, even if Leeds United are relegated from the Premier League, they will sell Rafiha for much more than the 17 million Pounds they paid him. The 25-year-old is arguably Leeds United’s most talented player and a great player on the team.
Raphinha, the Brazilian, has started the last five games for Leeds United in the Premier League and scored one goal in the previous five matches and also assisted one goal. Leeds United won two games out of the last five games played, and surprisingly, in both the games, Raphinha contributed to the scoring showing how important he is to the team. Overall, Raphinha has scored ten goals this season and provided three assists, which is a better performance put in by him than last season. Raphinha scored six goals and provided nine assists in the previous season, and he was the leading man under their former manager Bielsa. Compared to last season (66), he has taken more shots on goal (74), showing that he is getting into the correct positions when required.
Leeds United are currently 16th in the Premier League table and has earned 10 points from the last four games. They won three games and drew one; the draw came against Southampton, where Leeds took the lead in the 29th minute and held the lead till the end of the first half, but in the early minutes of the second half James Ward-Prowse scored through an excellent freekick and put the game on the level and it remained the same way till the end. It was a very well fought game between both the teams, and it was fair that they had to share one point each.
The rest three victories were very helpful for Leeds United as they kept them away from the relegation zone. Their recent success away from home against Watford was imposing and now can leave them in the hope to get more victories from the other remaining games. They will visit Crystal Palace for their next match. Leeds will hope to get the same result when they meet in December for their first fixture; Raphinha was given the opportunity to take the penalty in the 90+4th minute, which enlightened the stadium. The moment he scored the penalty whole stadium danced with joy.
Leeds United are now 9 points ahead of the relegation zone and will look to maintain their lead as they would not want to be relegated again. Their new manager J. Marsch has been doing good work with the team and will hope to keep this form intact till the end of the season and hope to stay in the Premier League.
