Commentary

That is all from this fixture and the Premier League season, until next time!
The 3-1 win here means Leeds end up ninth in the Premier League and finish the season with 59 points, the most by a promoted club since Ipswich Town in 2000-01. West Brom, in contrast, fail to survive in their first season back and now the task for them is to bounce straight back up from the Championship next season.
Leeds conclude their season with four straight wins as they beat West Brom 3-1 at Elland Road. First-half goals from Rodrigo and Kalvin Phillips put the hosts ahead before Bamford's second-half penalty put them three goals to the good. Robson-Kanu capitalised on a late Kalvin Phillips mistake to pull one back for the Baggies, who finish 19th in the Premier League and will be playing Championship football next year.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: LEEDS UNITED 3-1 WEST BROM
K. Phillips
Yellow Card
90' + 4' After returning to his feet and receiving medical treatment on his shoulder, Kalvin Phillips goes into the book for his late sliding challenge on Diangana.
90' + 2' Kalvin Phillips flies into a late and powerful sliding challenge on Diangana near the left-hand touchline. Both players end up on the floor with Kalvin Phillips holding his shoulder and require medical attention. A needless sliding tackle by the English midfielder ahead of the international summer has the Leeds fans inside Elland Road slightly concerned.
H. Robson-Kanu
Goal
90' GOOOOOOALLLL! WEST BROM PULL ONE BACK! Cooper plays back to Kalvin Phillips, whose loose touch lets Robson-Kanu pull one back as he places a left-footed finish past Casilla and into the bottom left corner. Cooper and Kalvin Phillips look at each other but the English midfielder has to take the blame for a poor touch on the edge of his own area there. The Baggies make it 3-1 at Elland Road as the final whistle approaches!
89' WIDE! Yokuslu's tired touch allows Roberts to intercept near the halfway line and he plays a throughball through the middle. Bamford races towards the edge of the area before dragging a left-footed strike just wide of goal to the right. Johnstone came rushing out of his goal, which is perhaps what put the English forward off as he didn't know whether to chip his effort or place it.
88' Roberts slides in Harrison, who offloads to Alioski in the left-hand channel. The move comes to an end, however, as the offside flag is up against the left-back on the near side. Johnstone pumps long and it seems the visitors just want the final whistle to come now.
86' Despite being three goals to the good and five or so minutes away from the end of the season, Leeds are still playing at an incredibly high intensity. They are knocking possession about with real confidence and every pass is being greeted by cheers from the Whites' fans inside Elland Road.
84' Allardyce has never lost at Elland Road in his managerial career (W2 D2), with this his first away game against Leeds since a 1-1 draw with West Ham in the 2011-12 Championship. Barring a miracle here, his record at Leeds' ground is set to end today.
K. Ahearne-Grant
A. Maitland-Niles
83' Loanee Maitland-Niles is Allardyce's next change as Grant comes on for the Baggies.
81' Robinson and Diangana both see efforts from outside the area blocked before the latter dinks a cross into the middle. Robson-Kanu looks interested but the hosts manage to turn behind for a corner, which comes to nothing as Bamford clears.
80' Bamford scored his 17th goal of the season in the Premier League, equalling Mark Viduka's tally from 2000/01.
P. Bamford
Penalty Goal
79' GOOOOOOOOALLLL! 3-0 LEEDS! Yokuslu’s handball offers Bamford the chance from the penalty spot. The English forward coolly wanders up to the ball, waiting for Johnstone to dive to his left as he places a left-footed strike straight down the middle and into the back of the net. His 17th of the season in the English top-flight and perhaps another nudge towards Gareth Southgate who will be making his European Championship squad selection soon.
78' PENALTY TO LEEDS! Alioski feeds Harrison, who roams down the left flank before crossing towards the edge of the area. Yokuslu manages to intervene but he uses his hand inside the box and referee Coote has no chance but to award a penalty to the hosts. VAR has a quick check before confirming the ball has struck the Turkish midfielder’s arm and the penalty decision stands.
77' SAVE! Ayling wants to get involved on the act as he flashes a deflected right-footed effort just over the bar from the edge of the area. Raphinha whips in another delivery, which comes to nothing but Struijk recycles the ball to Roberts, who sees his right-footed strike palmed away by Johnstone. The goalkeeper did well there, given he may have been largely unsighted by the crowd of bodies inside the box.
76' Roberts surges through the centre before offloading to Raphinha, who makes it to the byline before trying to cross across the face of goal for Bamford. The English forward would have had a tap-in but Ajayi does well to make a last-ditch clearance in front of goal.
75' Raphinha teases Townsend as he twists and turns before winning a corner on the right-hand side. The Brazilian curls in the set-piece that he won but Ayling can't get his head on the ball at the near post as Bartley heads clear.
73' WIDE! Gallagher whips in a set-piece from the left-hand side and his cross finds Robson-Kanu, who can only head wide to the left of goal from near the penalty spot. Casilla stands still as he watches it go wide. With the pace on the delivery, the Spanish goalkeeper would have had no chance of stopping that attempt if it was on target.
71' SAVE! Raphinha wanders into the right-hand channel and cuts inside to curl a left-footed cross towards the penalty spot. Bamford, who has made it inside of Bartley and Ajayi, can only head into the hands of Johnstone despite being unmarked. For now, Bamford remains on 16 Premier League goals for the season.
T. Roberts
Pablo Hernández
70' Just like Berardi, Hernandez gets a similar greeting from his team-mates and the Leeds fans inside Elland Road as he takes his time to wander over to the touchline. The Spaniard's final game for the Whites is over and Roberts is the man who replaces him in the middle.
P. Struijk
G. Berardi
69' Berardi’s final farewell comes as Bielsa brings on Struijk. The Italian defender is greeted by all of his team-mates, with even Bartley making his way over to exchange a huge before applauding the fans at Elland Road and making his way off the pitch.
68' OVER! Diangana clips out to Maitland-Niles before the loanee feeds back to his team-mate inside the area. Diangana fakes to shoot, leaving Alioski and Ayling on the floor before blasting a right-footed strike over the bar with just Casilla to beat. Another chance goes amiss for the Baggies.
67' Raphinha finds the chest of Hernandez inside the area and the Spaniard brings the ball down before seeing his right-footed volley deflected behind for a corner by Ajayi. The resulting set-piece comes to nothing as Bartley heads clear.
66' The Whites have won 52% of the Premier League games winger Raphinha has played this season (15/29), compared to 25% without him (2/8). The Brazilian has ended on the winning side in his last six Premier League games, with only one player ever winning seven in a row for a newly promoted team – Steve Watson for Newcastle United between February and May 1994.
65' CLOSE! Hernandez falls over in the middle of the park which offers the chance for West Brom to intercept and attack. Maitland-Niles does so, driving through the middle and reaching the edge of the area before seeing his low, right-footed effort saved by Casilla, who dives down to his right to protect Leeds' two-goal advantage.
64' Raphinha can't recreate his first-half assist as his teasing left-footed corner gets headed away at the near post. Hernandez, who is attempting to recycle possession, skips around few tackles near the halfway line, which of course is met by the applause of the fans inside Elland Road watching him for the last time.
63' Robson-Kanu and Maitland-Niles press up high but Casilla and Berardi show their composure to play around the press. The home side make it all the way to the byline at the other end and Ayling wins a corner, courtesy of Townsend's sliding tackle.
62' Gallagher slips at the crucial moment on the edge of the area after good work from Maitland-Niles initially. The hosts counter-attack through Alioski but his final pass towards Bamford is wayward and the opportunity to attack fades away.
G. Diangana
C. Robinson
61' At the same time as O'Shea's removal, the Baggies also send on Diangana for Robinson.
H. Robson-Kanu
D. O'Shea
60' Allardyce signals his attacking intentions as he brings off centre-back O'Shea for forward Robson-Kanu.
60' Dallas fires in the resulting set-piece from the left-hand channel and Johnstone produces a good punch high above the head of his team-mates. Townsend then takes a while to get the ball back in play, perhaps to offer his team a well-deserved breather.
59' Furlong makes a good sliding tackle in the corner on Alioski before needlessly barging over the left-back with his second tackle. Leeds get a free-kick in the left-hand corner and things are heating up at Elland Road!
58' CHANCE! One-touch play from the hosts sees them reach the edge of the area, where Hernandez's first effort gets blocked after being teed up by Bamford. The second follow-up chance falls to Hernandez, who sees his second right-footed strike turned around the post by Johnstone.
56' Consecutive corners come for the away side but on both occasions Leeds somehow clear their lines away from the crowd of bodies inside their area. On the second attempt, a counter-attacking opportunity opens up but Raphinha fails to find Bamford as Bartley intercepts in a two-on-one situation.
55' POST! Matt Phillips drives inwards, searching for Gallagher, who gets tackled by Alioski and the loose ball falls back to Matt Phillips. The Baggies' midfielder looks for the far corner from the edge of the area but his right-footed, curling attempt cannons into the right-hand post before Alioski manages to avert the danger behind for a corner in front of Robinson.
54' A prolonged spell of possession ends with Berardi looking over the top for Bamford. The English forward is inches away from getting the crucial touch by Johnstone but the goalkeeper manages to collect.
53' Bamford has scored 16 Premier League goals this season, the most by a player for a promoted club since Charlie Austin with QPR in 2014-15 (18). As of yet, he hasn't had a chance to test Johnstone since his half-time introduction.
51' SAVE! Maitland-Niles gives away possession to Hernandez on the right-hand side and the Spaniard exchanges a one-two with Dallas. Hernandez brings down the return pass inside the area, spinning to unleash a left-footed volley towards the top left corner. For now, however, the Spanish midfielder's glory moment will have to wait as Johnstone moves across to save well.
50' Alioski fires into the feet of Dallas but the Northern Irishman's attempted flick backwards leaves Kalvin Phillips a little short. The hosts regain possession before looking long for Harrison, who has made a run inwards from the left-hand channel, but Johnstone rushes out to collect.
48' Matt Phillips sways past two tackles before exchanging passes with Townsend. The visitors probe around the edge of the area before Furlong finds Casilla's hands with a tame right-footed volley.
47' Raphinha goes roaming down the right-hand channel, passing inside for Bamford, whose first touch is a heavy one and the ball races out of play. Is this one final chance for Bamford to impress Gareth Southgate and make a push for England's European Championship squad?
46' Referee Coote gets the second half underway!
P. Bamford
Rodrigo
46' Scorer of the first goal, Rodrigo, makes way at half-time for Bamford.
Allardyce won't be too unhappy with his side's first-half performance as they have looked good going forward, hence the chances for Robinson and Furlong. He may look to make changes at half-time still, perhaps introducing Diagne or Diangana. Bielsa, in contrast, will be delighted with his team's efforts, much like the fans who have returned to see their side at Elland Road today.
As they have done all season, Leeds produced another fast-paced start to take the lead through Rodrigo's header from Raphinha's corner. Chances for Furlong and Robinson followed for West Brom but it was Kalvin Phillips' free-kick that extended the Whites' lead on the stroke of half-time. Bielsa's side wander down the tunnel at Elland Road leading 2-0 in the final game of this Premier League campaign.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: LEEDS UNITED 2-0 WEST BROM
45' + 1' Rodrigo hassles Bartley and gets the chance to drive through the middle. The Spaniard heads towards Johnstone's goal before referee Coote pulls it back for a free-kick to the away side. Another belated decision from the officials frustrates the Leeds fans inside Elland Road.
45' Berardi clatters into Maitland-Niles and the Baggies get a free-kick in their own half. The visitors take the opportunity to take a breather and they look like they need the half-time whistle to regroup amongst themselves.
44' Bartley takes an awkward touch inside his own area but the centre-back manages to eventually clear. Johnstone then gets possession and clears but it looks like he is still considering if he could have done better with Kalvin Phillips' free-kick moments ago.
K. Phillips
Goal
42' GOOOOOOOALLL! 2-0 LEEDS! After Hernandez wins a free-kick 25 yards from goal slightly to the left-hand side, Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha debate who is going to take the set-piece. The England midfielder does so, curling a right-footed strike over the wall and into the bottom left corner. The ball bounces just in front of Johnstone and the goalkeeper may feel he should be doing better to save the effort. Kalvin Phillips, however, won’t care as he has grabbed his first goal of the season!
41' Gallagher chops down Hernandez inside the left-hand channel and the hosts get a free-kick in a good position. Gallagher has already been booked and he needs to be careful if he is to last the full 90 minutes here.
40' Dallas is the man to deliver an inswinging set-piece from the left-hand side but West Brom defend well at the near post. Maitland-Niles looks to launch a counter-attack, however, Hernandez gets an important touch to clear out for a throw-in near the halfway line.
39' Robinson hesitates for far too long on the edge of the area and Berardi intervenes. Down the other end, Alioski's attempted cross from the left gets turned behind by Maitland-Niles for a corner to the hosts.
38' Leeds have scored 60 Premier League goals this season, a record for a promoted club in a 38-game season in the competition. Victory here will see them finish the season with 59 points, the most by a promoted club since Ipswich Town in 2000-01 (66).
36' Robinson, who has cut an isolated figure up top at times so far, can't twist and turn as Kalvin Phillips rushes him into a decision in the middle. With Phillips and Alioski set for European Championship action over the summer, could Bielsa offer them a rest at some point today?
34' CLOSE! Townsend hovers in the left-hand channel, playing a lovely disguised pass into the feet of Robinson, who from the edge of the area sets his sights on the bottom left corner. Casilla scrambles across but Robinson's low right-footed strike goes just wide of the post and out for a goal-kick. That should be a warning sign for Leeds as they were carved open by just one pass by the left-back there.
32' Harrison is found by Kalvin Phillips on the left-hand side and he looks to feed back into Dallas. The Northern Irishman can't quite get to the loose ball, however, and the Baggies intervene through Yokuslu on the edge of their own area.
30' Referee Coote makes a belated decision to give a foul against Ayling for his tackle on Robinson. The visitors' forward raced to his feet to have a stern word with the referee so perhaps he is lucky to get both the free-kick and escape a booking for dissent.
29' Raphinha is hugging the right-hand touchline and Kalvin Phillips searches out the Brazilian. On this occasion, however, O'Shea manages to get across and intercept before Raphinha can get the chance to bring it down and run at him.
28' Hernandez tries to send another curling pass for the run of Rodrigo up top but Bartley is alert to the danger and intervenes. Every time the Spanish midfielder gets the ball he is attempting to get his head up and look for his Spanish team-mate in behind the West Brom defence.
26' Gallagher slips over and stands on the ball, keeping it between his legs as Kalvin Phillips hassles to regain possession. The Whites suggest a foul from Gallagher, moments after his first booking but referee Coote restarts play with a drop ball.
25' It has been a frantic start to the final game of the season at Elland Road as both teams engage in an end-to-end affair. After 25 minutes, the hosts have probably just shaded proceedings but the Baggies are more than holding their own in front of the returning Leeds fans.
C. Gallagher
Yellow Card
23' Gallagher lunges into a sliding tackle on Raphinha near the right-hand touchline. Referee Coote shows the second booking of the game, meaning Gallagher now joins Cooper in the referee's book.
22' West Brom have won just one of their last 11 away league games against Leeds (D3 L7), winning 3-2 in the Championship in January 2007.
21' SAVE! Matt Phillips goes on his own down the left-hand side, crossing towards the far post where Alioski has two men to mark. Furlong meets the cross and produces a diving header towards goal but Casilla palms away a save before collecting the follow-up in front of Robinson.
19' Gallagher goes down inside the area and the away side appeal for a penalty from Raphinha's tackle. Referee Coote disagrees and after a quick VAR check play resumes without the award of a penalty.
Raphinha
Assist
17' After winning a corner on the right-hand side off O'Shea, Raphinha whips an inviting set-piece into the near post, where Berardi misses the ball. Rodrigo sneaks in at the far post, however, to head home into an empty net.
Rodrigo
Goal
17' GOOOOOOOOALLL! 1-0 LEEDS! Raphinha swings in a left-footed cross from the corner on the right and the ball evades Berardi at the near post. Rodrigo, however, arrives at the back post to power a header into an empty net to open the scoring. If the Spaniard didn’t convert that, Harrison was there ready and waiting too!
17' Ayling plays an inch-perfect pass to Raphinha over the right-hand side and the Brazilian wins the first corner of the game for the hosts.
16' Kalvin Phillips is a bit too enthusiastic in the middle and he needlessly fouls Gallagher. The Baggies take the set-piece quickly and short but their attacking move comes to an end as Furlong goes down softly in the right-hand corner and doesn't get a free-kick.
14' Cooper works out to Alioski on the left flank but the left-back's cross goes just over the head of Raphinha at the far post. Kalvin Phillips then tries his luck from 25 yards out and his right-footed effort sails over Johnstone's goal.
13' Hernandez knocks through the legs of Yokuslu in midfield, much to the delight of the returning home fans. The Spaniard's next pass, however, lacks quality and the visitors get a throw-in on the left-hand side. With this being Hernandez's last game for the club, it can be expected his every movement will be celebrated today.
12' After a run of three straight league defeats against West Brom, Leeds are unbeaten in four against the Baggies (W3 D1), with those three victories coming by an aggregate score of 10-0.
11' Ajayi goes on a rare venture forward, however, his attempted cross is poor and races out for a goal-kick. The Whites quickly get the ball back in play and go back to their business of retaining possession while looking to penetrate the Baggies' defence.
10' Johnstone is starting far off his line every time Leeds look to play over the top. On this occasion, Rodrigo is the man Dallas looks for but the goalkeeper is quick out of his area to sweep up any potential danger for the visitors.
8' Dallas floats an ambitious pass into the right-hand channel and Raphinha makes good ground on O'Shea to keep the ball in play. Rodrigo attempts to win possession back on the follow-up but Townsend manages to clear his lines.
7' NO GOAL! Hernandez regains possession on the right flank, curling a right-footed pass for Rodrigo, who smartly flicks towards the far post. Harrison sneaks in at the back, smashing a left-footed finish into the bottom left corner but the goal won't stand as the Spaniard was offside. VAR has a quick check before confirming the goal can't stand.
5' Harrison goes on an early surge forward but his progress comes to an end as Ajayi steps out of defence to intervene. Despite neither side having too much to play for, it has been a fairly high-paced start to proceedings.
3' WIDE! Gallagher swings in the resulting free-kick from the right-hand side, finding Bartley who heads wide to the left of goal after towering above Berardi near the penalty spot.
3' Furlong is still down after that arm in the face from Cooper. Unsurprisingly, the Leeds faithful that have returned to Elland Road don't seem too sympathetic towards the right wing-back on the far side.
L. Cooper
Yellow Card
1' Furlong goes down in the right-hand corner, courtesy of an arm across the face from Cooper. Referee Coote books the Leeds captain and VAR checks the foul from the Scottish centre-back before allowing play to go on without the need for further action.
1' Referee David Coote gets this game underway!
Leeds have lost their final league game in just one of the last eight campaigns (W3 D4), doing so against Ipswich in 2018-19. In the Premier League, the Whites have lost their final league game just once (W4 D7), though that defeat did come in their last campaign in the competition in 2003-04 (0-1 vs Chelsea).
Allardyce also makes two changes to his final West Brom starting line-up. O’Shea returns in defence, replacing Matheus Pereira, who misses out of the squad entirely. The other change sees Robson-Kanu move down to the bench and Robinson starts in his place.
Marcelo Bielsa opts for two changes from the Southampton win. Berardi makes his first Premier League start as he replaced the injured centre-back Diego Llorente. Hernandez, who like Berardi is making his final appearance for Leeds, replaces Bamford, who drops down to the bench after an incredibly productive season for the hosts.
SUBS: Caleb Taylor, Lee Peltier, Karlan Grant, Hal Robson-Kanu, Tim Iroegbunam, Taylor Gardner-Hickman, Grady Diangana, Mbaye Diagne, David Button.
WEST BROM (5-4-1): Sam Johnstone; Conor Townsend, Dara O’Shea, Kyle Bartley, Semi Ajayi, Darnell Furlong; Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Okay Yokuslu, Conor Gallagher, Matt Phillips; Callum Robinson.
SUBS: Jack Jenkins, Pascal Struijk, Tyler Roberts, Leif Davis, Jamie Shackleton, Patrick Bamford, Ian Poveda-Ocampo, Illan Meslier, Oliver Casey.
LEEDS UNITED (4-1-4-1): Kiko Casilla; Gaetano Berardi, Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Ezgjan Alioski; Kalvin Phillips; Raphinha, Stuart Dallas, Pablo Hernandez, Jack Harrison; Rodrigo Moreno.
This will be Sam Allardyce’s last game in the charge of West Brom, after announcing he will not be carrying on in the Championship next season. Promising victories against Chelsea and Southampton gave the Baggies hope, but a run of six matches without a win resigned the visitors to Championship football next campaign. They can, however, move into 18th if they are successful and Newcastle United beat Fulham today.
A win here could secure an eighth-place finish for Leeds, who have impressed in their first season back in the Premier League since the 2003/04 campaign. A dip in form occurred against Brighton and Hove Albion, however, three consecutive wins against Tottenham, Burnley and Southampton have lifted the Whites up the table and lowest they can now finish is 10th in the English top-flight.
