Richard Keys shares weird eight-word verdict on Leeds win v Norwich as PL headlines delivered

  • by

Leeds United stole three points as they secured a late win over Norwich at Elland Road on Sunday, according to Richard Keys.

Joe Gelhardt’s 94th-minute goal won the game for the Whites as they moved four points clear of the Premier League’s relegation zone.

Kenny McLean equalised three minutes before that after Leeds battered the away side throughout most of the game.

However, that hasn’t stopped Keys from sharing his weird verdict on Leeds’ win as he rounded up the relegation battle on Sunday.

“Leeds United steal three huge points from Norwich,” said Keys as he shared his Premier League headlines, as shown in a clip on the beIN SPORTS Twitter account.

“Watford are still alive, they win at Southampton.

“But it gets ever stickier for the Toffees, [who were] beaten at home by Wolves.”

Get out

On what planet did Leeds steal a win against Norwich?

If there was anything being stolen on Sunday, it would have been Norwich stealing a point had McLean’s 91st-minute goal proven to be the final one of the game.

Leeds should have been well clear of the Canaries before they were allowed to get back into the game late on.

According to stats on the BBC Sport website, Leeds had 13 shots and hit the target on seven occasions while the Whites also had a goal disallowed when Daniel James thought he’d scored.

And the xG Philosophy shows that Leeds should have scored 2.97 goals while Norwich were only expected to score 0.92.

We battered them and while Gelhardt’s winner was later than late, it wasn’t a smash and grab by any means.

Keys seems to have it in for Jesse Marsch and that could be why he has such a strange view on Leeds’ dominant display against Dean Smith’s Norwich.

But the American has prevailed and taken his side in the right direction towards avoiding relegation.

Well done, Jesse. And well done to Joe Gelhardt too.

What a day.
