Graham Smyth's Leeds United player ratings v Norwich City as eight score 9/10, three 8s

Leeds United battered Norwich City 4-0 in Thursday night’s Championship play-off semi-final second leg at Elland Road – but how did we rate the performances?

Sunday's first leg at Carrow Road had ended in a goalless draw but the Canaries were absolutely blitzed four days later, goals from Ilia Gruev, Joel Piroe and Georginio Rutter putting Daniel Farke's rampant Whites 3-0 up at the break.

The onslaught then continued after the interval, the Championship's player of the year Crysencio Summerville bagging a Whites fourth to put Leeds totally out of sight and heading for next Sunday's Wembley final in style.

Graham Smyth, the YEP’s chief football writer, hands out the scores from a night to remember at Elland Road. The Whites will play either Southampton or West Brom in the play-off final for a place in the Premier League.
