Amazing-Leeds Clinch Fifth Consecutive Victory with Meslier’s Standout Performance

Leeds secured their fifth consecutive league victory of the New Year, with Willy Gnonto’s goal shortly after halftime securing the win. While the Whites could have clinched a more substantial victory on a different night, they were content with their performance.

Bristol City faced difficulties playing through Leeds’ intense high press, frequently finding themselves caught out in their own half, especially by Crysencio Summerville. Conversely, Leeds displayed ease in maneuvering around Bristol City, showcasing the skills of Illan Meslier, Joe Rodon, and Ethan Ampadu.

Meslier, who has faced criticism for recent performances, received praise for a crucial save in the second half that thwarted Bristol City’s only significant scoring opportunity. Despite having minimal involvement in the game, Meslier’s performance was deemed confidence-boosting by former Leeds defender Aidy White.

Jon Newsome, a pundit on BBC Radio Leeds, commended Meslier’s distribution, highlighting a noticeable improvement compared to recent weeks. Newsome acknowledged Meslier’s better decision-making, especially in recognizing and responding effectively to the opponent’s high press, setting the stage for successful attacking plays.
