Leeds United’s first game in front of fans on home soil under new boss Daniel Farke ended in defeat as AS Monaco recorded a 2-0 victory at York City’s LNER Community Stadium.

Farke gave a debut to new summer signing Ethan Ampadu who started in centre midfield and the 22-year-old impressed as the first half ended 0-0, Leeds guilty of squandering chances in front of goal.

The Whites again pushed forward after the break but a period of strong pressure from Monaco led to the French side going ahead through a Wissam Ben Yedder penalty awarded for Willy Gnonto dangling a leg as Leeds looked to clear a corner.

The second half also featured a Whites return for Sam Byram who has been training with Leeds and was brought on as a second half substitute but Monaco bagged a second goal through a fantastic bullet header finish from Kevin Holland from a left flank cross.
