EPL English Premier LeagueLeeds 1-1 Brighton

Leeds 1-1 Brighton

Struijk’s stoppage-time header snatches a late point for Leeds in a 1-1 draw with Brighton.

After taking advantage of Llorente’s hesitation, Welbeck put the Seagulls ahead with a lovely chipped effort in the first half, but Leeds kept pushing.

Klich forced a great save out of Sanchez just before the break, and the keeper was called into action to deny Raphinha from a free-kick in the second half.

Gelhardt also dragged a shot wide, but he set up the equaliser, lifting it into Struijk, who nodded in from close range.

Starting lineup:

LEEDS UNITED STARTING XI (5-4-1): Illan Meslier; Raphinha, Robin Koch, Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper, Junior Firpo; Rodrigo, Mateusz Klich, Kalvin Phillips, Jack Harrison; Joe Gelhardt.

LEEDS UNITED SUBS: Archie Gray, Pascal Struijk, Charlie Cresswell, Kristoffer Klaesson, Lewis Bate, Nohan Kenneh, Leo Fuhr Hjelde, Jamie Shackleton, Sam Greenwood.

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION STARTING XI (3-4-2-1): Robert Sanchez; Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Marc Cucurella; Solly March, Yves Bissouma, Moises Caicedo, Leandro Trossard; Pascal Gross, Alexis Mac Allister; Danny Welbeck.

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION SUBS: Neal Maupay, Adam Webster, Evan Ferguson, Odeluga Offiah, Tariq Lamptey, Shane Duffy, Adam Lallana, Steven Alzate, Jason Steele.


WELBECK SCORES! Bissouma slides it forward into the penalty, and it looks like Llorente has it covered, but Welbeck brushes him aside to get on the ball. Then, from the right of the six-yard box, he chips a shot over Meslier, and it nestles into the far bottom corner. 1-0 Brighton!

STRUIJK EQUALISES! And Elland Road erupts with noise! Llorente switches it out to Gelhardt on the right, and he keeps his composure brilliantly to beat two Brighton defenders. He lifts it over the crowd to pick out Struijk at the far post, and he has a free header as he nods it into the back of the net. That could be a massive goal in their season! 1-1!

So, what’s next?

Leeds has moved up to 17th, one point above Burnley, who have now dropped into the relegation zone.

The Clarets, as well as Everton, both have a game in hand over them, though. Leeds finish their season with a trip to Brentford next Sunday.

Brighton drops to 10th and is now unbeaten in four. They host West Ham in their final game.
