Wilfried Gnonto the standout performer for Leeds United supporters in draw with Brighton

Leeds United supporters have singled out Wilfried Gnonto as the star performer against Brighton, despite only coming onto the pitch to replace Crysencio Summerville in the 66th minute. The young Italian international has been a standout performer in an otherwise disappointing campaign for the Whites.

The Leeds United hierarchy had hoped to avoid a relegation battle this season following investment into the squad in the summer, but they're languishing in a relegation battle once again. Despite picking up a point against high flying Brighton, Javi Gracia's side dropped into the bottom three, with Bournemouth and Everton winning at the weekend.

Patrick Bamford cancelled out Alexis MacAllister's opener with Jack Harrison's own goal restoring Brighton's lead. The Whites winger produced a moment of magic to restore parity and gain a point.

Just three Leeds United players would earn a fan rating above a 6.0 with Gnonto (6.9) Illan Meslier (6.4) and Patrick Bamford the best performing trio in the eyes of supporters. Luis Sinisterra returned to action alongside Bamford and Rodrigo with a late substitute appearance, the reason behind his low scoring of 4.5.

However, it was Luke Ayling who took home the worst rating in the eyes of supporters with a 4.3 after being beaten in the air by Kaoru Mitoma in the build-up to Brighton’s opener.
