Days after beating Stoke City in the Championship, Leeds United exited the League Cup at the hands of the same opponents, with the Potters winning 5-4 on penalties against Marcelo Bielsa’s men.
Stoke had Jack Butland back in goal for this clash, and he scored the visitors’ fifth kick of the shoot out, which was to prove decisive as Jack Harrison missed the next one for the Whites.
Butland however didn’t have it all his way- he made a horror mistake midway through the second half (see video below), that allowed Eddie Nketiah to capitalise and bring Leeds back into the game after Stoke had gone 2-0 up
Another goal from Helder Costa took the game to penalties, but the Potters prevailed in the shootout, much to the relief of their manager Nathan Jones.
