Martin Keown says Leeds have a ‘lovely’ player in their ranks he feels is really underrated

Leeds United ace Stuart Dallas has been praised by BBC Sport pundit Martin Keown for his impressive performance in the Whites’ victory at Manchester City on Saturday.

As far as Premier League fixtures go, a trip to the Etihad is about as hard as you can get, particularly when facing a side running away at the top of the table.

And when you have to play the second half of the game a man down, it’s all the more difficult.

But Leeds not only didn’t let their heads drop, but they took all three points in a dramatic finish.

The Whites went ahead in the 42nd minute through good work from Helder Costa and Patrick Bamford, culminating in Dallas rifling home off the base of the post.

Liam Cooper was then sent off just before half time following a lunge on Gabriel Jesus, referee Andre Marriner initially showing a yellow card but upgrading to red after a VAR review.

 

Ferran Torres got his side back in the game with a goal 14 minutes from time, but a swift injury-time counter-attack led to Dallas netting his second of the afternoon for all three points.

“Stuart Dallas is a player who I feel is really underrated,” Keown told BBC Final Score (14:47).

“He can play in multiple positions. He was playing in midfield today and they were two lovely finishes.”

Dallas now has seven goals and two assists from 31 Premier League this season, while his overall tally at Elland Road reads 223 games, 26 goals and 17 assists.
