LEEDS ended their first Premier League season in 16 years in style by beating West Brom 3-1 at Elland Road in front of their returning fans to finish ninth.

Rodrigo and Kalvin Phillips put Leeds 2-0 up at the interval before Patrick Bamford converted a penalty for Marcelo Bielsa’s side. Substitute Hal Robson-Kanu struck late on for the visitors.

Kalvin Phillips suffered a shoulder injury just before full-time, though Leeds have since announced they are confident he will be available for Euro 2020, if selected in the England squad.

Pablo Hernandez and Gaetano Berardi both started in their final appearances for Leeds.

Hernandez crossed for Jack Harrison to convert in the seventh minute, but the winger was offside.

Rodrigo then headed home Raphinha’s 18th-minute ball in for his seventh goal of the season to put Leeds in front and though Kiko Casilla had to save from West Brom’s Darnell Furlong, the hosts doubled their advantage just before the break.

Hernandez was fouled by Conor Gallagher and Kalvin Phillips curled home the free-kick, his first Premier League goal, inside the near post.

Bamford replaced Rodrigo for the second half and the game started to become end-to-end, with West Brom midfielder Matt Phillips going closest when he hit the inside of a post.

Hernandez and Berardi were replaced to a standing ovation with 20 minutes left, before Leeds extended their lead when Bamford slammed home from the spot, his 17th Premier League goal of the season, after Okay Yoksulu had handled.

Robson-Kanu pounced on a defensive mix-up in the closing stages to slot home relegated West Brom’s consolation.
