Leeds United player ratings from Bramall Lane.

Our Phil Hay hands out the scores in south Yorkshire...

Bailey Peacock-Farrell - Made big saves at big moments and even though he was wobbly under high balls, his saves were what mattered. 8/10
Pontus Jansson - Almost the last centre-back standing at Leeds and put in a typical Jansson shift: no-nonsense and ultra-reliable. 8/10

Liam Cooper - At first glance his injury looked nasty and once again Bielsa is seriously stretched in terms of options at the back. N/A
Kalvin Phillips - Leeds arent benefitting from his passing in this position but defensively he looked like a lifelong central defender. Read the game superbly. 8/10
Stuart Dallas - Enda Stevens is always hard work but Dallas is growing into the wine-back role and looked more comfortable than he had previously. 7/10
Barry Douglas - Leeds encountered very few problems down their right and Douglas kept that side of the pitch under control. 7/10
Adam Forshaw - Scrapped from start to finish in a derby which never settled down. After a hard first 20 minutes, gave as good as he got. 7/10
Gjanni Alioski - Tuesday night all over again. Barely touched the ball, did nothing with it when he did and was sacrificed at half-time. 4/10
Pablo Hernandez - In and out again, like he has been in the last few games, but not for the first time he came up with the winner. An out-and-out matchwinner. 7/10
Mateusz Klich - Began to exert himself in the second half and Leeds had plenty of the game after the interval but the tight nature of the match didnt suit him. 6/10
Kemar Roofe - Inches away from scoring with a header and fought as hard as he could with a limited amount of possession to work with. 7/10
Aapo Halme (for Cooper, 21) - One mistake almost gifted McGoldrick a goal but hard not to be very impressed with the way he slotted in. 7/10
Jack Clarke (for Alioski, 46) - Good things and bad things from him but held his nerve brilliantly to set up the winner. 7/10
Jamie Shackleton (for Hernandez, 90) - A fresh body on the pitch at a time when Sheffield United were launching the kitchen sink. 5/10
