League position: 14th This was Leeds United’s first goalless draw in a home game in all competitions since the visit of Middlesbrough in the League Championship on 31 August 2018. The Whites avoided losing three consecutive league games for the first time since November 2017 in the League Championship. They had now kept a clean sheet in 100 of their 239 home game in the Premier League.
