Leeds United 1-1 West Ham United

A thoroughly entertaining opening period in which both teams have flexed their muscles.

Mateusz Klich handed Leeds an early advantage, netting from the spot at the second attempt after Lukasz Fabianski felled Patrick Bamford. The Polish stopper saved from Klich, but after VAR had interupted, his fellow countryman made no mistake when handed another opportunity.

West Ham responded strongly, with Tomas Soucek powerfully heading home a Jarrod Bowen flag-kick midway through the half. Chances have come at both ends since – More of the same, please, after the break.
