Leeds United 1 Watford 0 - Graham Smyth's player ratings as Diego Llorente shines and Junior Firpo shows improvement

Leeds United recorded their first victory of the new Premier League season through Saturday's 1-0 win at home to Watford - but how did we rate the performances?

Saturday, 2nd October 2021, 10:26 pm

The returning Diego Llorente bagged the only goal of the game in the 18th minute when hooking home a finish from close range after a Raphinha corner.

The victory took Leeds out of the drop zone and on to six points after seven games played, three points clear of the bottom three and in 16th place heading into the October international break.

Southampton away is next.
