Leeds United returned to the top of the Championship table once again as a fine low strike from Tyler Roberts did the job against a struggling Hull City side.
Marcelo Bielsa has got the Peacocks playing some classy football since taking over in the summer and more of the same continued against the Tigers with Leeds being the dominant side for most parts of the game. The scoreline could have been much worse for the home team but for some poor finishing from Ezgjan Alioski and Barry Douglas in the first half.
While the travelling supporters seemed pretty pleased with their side’s performance, they were far from happy with the officiating during the game as a Hull player was clearly seen spreading his arm to stop a goal-bound shot from Phillips.
Check out the incident here:
Most blatant handball ever. 100% a penalty, but we just won’t get it. What is it, like 50 games since we last were awarded a pen? That’s nearly a whole year. Don’t tell me there’s no bias against us. #lufc pic.twitter.com/2FgU50Tom9

The incident has understandably irked the Leeds support and many took to Twitter to voice their opinion against the poor decision. With the incident coming after a string of poor calls during the defeat to Birmingham City few days ago, some fans are beginning to wonder about a possible bias being developed against their team.
