Christian Benteke missed a golden chance to put the visitors ahead in the second half when Conor Gallagher’s cross picked him out perfectly at the back post, only for the Belgian to head tamely wide.

Benteke almost made amends inside the final 10 minutes when his poked effort looked to have fooled Leeds keeper Illan Meslier, but he scrambled back to stop the ball on his goal line.

And Leeds made Palace’s wastefulness pay in the final minutes of the match as Raphinha tucked away the spot kick to hand Marcelo Bielsa’s men a priceless victory.
