The incident occurred (via @PrimeVideoSport) in the first half of the game with Marcelo Bielsa’s men already 1-0 up, as Sheffield United defender George Baldock was involved in a rather heavy collision with Tyler Roberts whilst the Welshman was in the process of playing through Jack Harrison for an effort he dragged wide.
It was a tackle that on any other day could have been seen as a red card – something that Amazon Prime pundit Alan Shearer noted during the interval – with the referee on the day, Graham Scott, nor VAR referee Jarred Gillett taking any action on the matter.
It was no surprise, then, to see so many Leeds fans up in arms over the decision not to send Baldock off after journalist Graham Smyth vented his own fury at the decision:
“Another #lufc game, another baffling decision we are on the wrong end of. Par for the course”
Can Leeds reach the Champions League in 5 seasons?
Luckily it didn’t really have that much of an impact on the game, with Leeds eventually going on to win 2-1 thanks to an own goal from Phil Jagielka, otherwise the outcry probably would have been a lot more ferocious.
