Leeds vs. West Ham Highlights

Wilfried Gnonto scored his first goal for Leeds right before the halftime break, while Lucas Paqueta opened the scoring for West Ham with a VAR-awarded penalty just before the interval. A bouquet of flowers was left in the directors' box at Elland Road, where he would have sat next to David Sullivan, where the Hammers were playing for the first time after the death of joint-chairman David Gold earlier on Wednesday. Gianluca Scamacca capitalized on Brendon Aaronson's errant ball 45 seconds after the game's beginning, bending in a fantastic goal past an incapable Illan Meslier. West Ham had taken the lead. Once more bouncing back, Leeds equalized through Rodrigo, who scored his 10th goal of the year with a deft finish 20 minutes from time. West Ham broke their losing skid but are still looking for their first victory since October 9 while the hosts fought for a late winner but were forced to settle for a draw.

Leeds vs. West Ham Summary

Once more bouncing back, Leeds equalized through Rodrigo, who scored his 10th goal of the year with a deft finish 20 minutes from time. West Ham broke their losing skid but are still looking for their first victory since October 9 while the hosts fought for a late winner but were forced to settle for a draw. Timo Kehrer's naïve ball to Rodrigo, who was only stopped by Nayef Aguerd's slip, was an early indication of West Ham's unease, but neither team was able to cling onto any significant possession during the opening exchanges.

Although it took Leeds 27 minutes to create their first shot, the wait was worthwhile. Following exchanging passes with Summerville, Gnonto was given room to run after a throw-in, and he smashed the ball with genuine venom inside the near post. After gaining the lead, the home team had its finest stretch of the match, and twice Aaronson and Gnonto had opportunities to make it bigger. Given their terrible home defensive record, an extra cushion may have been essential, and without it, they were caught off guard. Just before halftime, Struijk brought Bowen down in the box, and when VAR sent David Coote to the review monitor, he gave West Ham a penalty.

Paqueta was given the chance to make his debut after Bowen and Declan Rice recently missed, and he defeated Illan Meslier with a good finish after a slow run-up. Within a minute after the game's restart, that goal shifted the pendulum of pressure even more in Jesse Mars' favor. Scamacca intercepted a ball that Aaronson threw back towards Marc Roca, giving him an opportunity to defeat Meslier from 25 yards out. He completed it flawlessly, curving a precise shot that went in off the far post and around the goalie.

When Summerville was lucky not to receive a red card for a strong tackle on Vladimir Coufal that sent the Czech defender out minutes later with a gash below his knee, West Ham's defense was pushed into an unwelcome rearrangement. A combination of this uncertainty and Leeds' upbeat attitude after the introductions of Jack Harrison and Mateusz Klich contributed to their equalizer, which came when Harrison, who had been on the field for just eight minutes, supplied Rodrigo to score a goal in the far corner.

In the last minute of additional time, Lukasz Fabianski was at his best to whisk away a third opportunity from the forward after linking up with the duo again as he stopped the Spaniard's rising effort. Following the final whistle, Leeds' players surrounded an emotional Klich and wore jerseys with his name on them. His departure from Elland Road was then announced in preparation for a prospective transfer to the MLS.
