Leeds United talking points

York City 0 Leeds United 5 - player ratings, talking points and standout moments

Leeds United returned to action on Wednesday evening with a 5-0 victory over York City at Bootham Crescent.

Here, we pick out a number of player ratings, talking points and standout moments from the Whites opening pre-season friendly of the summer in case you missed the action.

It had been 56 days since Leeds last kicked a ball in anger. United, though, returned to competitive action with a bang as they put in a five star showing at York City. Blowing off the cobwebs nicely.

8/10 - Jack Harrison. The Man City loanee needs a strong campaign at Elland Road and there was no better way for him to start. Two goals and an assist rounded off a fine evening for the 22-year-old.

Jack Harrison - during a quality display for the winger there was one moment of magic. York stood off Harrison 20-yards from goal and the loanee crashed a lovely finish into the bottom corner. A fine goal to cap a fine showing.

3-3-1-3 - Bielsa's second formation was out in force at York City. Alfie McCalmont slotted into the centre of defence as the Under-23s star made the step up. Pablo Hernandez also played in a more prominent central role.
