The £11m Leeds ace fought really hard to win today
Leeds United played a dramatic six-goal thriller and emerged victorious on Saturday.
Javi Gracia’s boys secured a 4-2 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers despite leading 3-0 at one point.
The Whites took an early lead through Jack Harrison, who came home with a lateral foot after Wilfried Gnonto’s cut-back.
Luke Ayling then doubled the Whites’ lead in the 49th minute, the unmarked defender heading past Jose Sa.
Substitute Rasmus Kristensen got rid of Jonny just after the hour and slipped into the corner of the net.
The Wolves defender then made amends in the 65th minute with a volley to keep his side alive.
Then Matheus Cunha struck in the 73rd minute with a deflected goal and set alarm bells ringing for the visitors.
However, the hosts found themselves a man behind after Jonny received a straight red card for a studs-up tackle on Ayling.
Later, Rodrigo Moreno hoisted the ball over the oncoming Sa to score his 11th goal of the season.
Max Wober was one of the best Leeds players on the day, receiving rave reviews and posting some good stats.
Leeds Live gave the 25-year-old a 7 out of 10 for his effort against Wolves.
“Made some big blocks all afternoon,” they wrote.
“Unfortunate that the hosts’ second goal bounced off his heel.”
Likewise, the Yorkshire Evening Post went 7 out of 10 for Wober.
‘Fought hard. Dished rollickings. We had to defend a lot when crosses came in,” they wrote.
Whoscored, who gave Wober a 6.70 out of 10, showcased the impressive stats he achieved.
He took 52 touches and made 36 passes, both the second most of any Leeds player (behind Marc Roca).
Wober also recorded eight clearances, two blocks, a tackle and an interception.
Leeds had the £11million man to thank for surviving the day after conceding just twice.
