On Saturday, Michail Antonio scored in the last minute to give West Ham a 2-1 victory, extending Leeds' Premier League winless run to six games.

Raphinha gave Leeds the lead at half-time, but the Whites were penalized again for failing to convert their chances, and Antonio scored the Hammers' last-minute winner following Junior Firpo's own-goal in the second half.

The failure of Marcelo Bielsa's team to convert chances has hampered their second season back in the Premier League, as they have slid into the bottom three.

Leeds has matched the club's longest winless streak from the start of a league season, which was established in 1935-36 and 1951-52.

Due to injuries and suspension, Bielsa was obliged to give center back Charlie Cresswell his Premier League debut, and West Ham, headed by Antonio, put the 19-year-old through his paces.
