Llorente Gives Leed First Win Of The Season

Posted by

Leeds won their first Premier League game of the season after defender Diego Llorente returned from injury to score the game-winning goal against Watford.

After a corner delivery rebounded off Watford’s Juraj Kucka at the back post, Llorente, who suffered a hamstring injury in the defeat by Liverpool, instinctively pushed it in from close range.

Leeds had dominated the first half, but their failure to take their chances made for a tense finish.

Watford had a goal disallowed in the second half for a foul in the build-up after goalkeeper Illan Meslier’s blunder nearly cost them the game.

Despite the close scoreline, Leeds were clearly the better team, and for the first time this season, they left Elland Road with three points.
