Summerville goal seals 4-3 Leeds comeback win vs Bournemouth
LEEDS, England (AP) Crysencio Summerville scored another late goal to help Leeds complete a 4-3 comeback win over Bournemouth in front of an Elland Road crowd that had booed the home team off the field at halftime on Saturday.
Summerville scored in the 84th minute after reaching Wilfried Gnonto's through ball in the center of the box, one week after his 89th-minute goal at Anfield sealed a dramatic 2-1 upset of Liverpool.
With three second-half goals, Leeds earned its first back-to-back Premier League victories since March.
Bournemouth got a goal and two assists from Marcus Tavernier but the Cherries slumped to their fourth consecutive loss.
Tavernier side-footed a volley beyond Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier to level the score at 1-1 shortly after Rodrigo had converted a third-minute penalty.
Tavernier then played a ball to Philip Billing, who scored from just inside the area in the 19th minute. Bournemouth dominated play for the rest of half, and Leeds players and manager Jesse Marsch were serenaded with boos as they walked off.
Shortly after the break, Dominic Solanke deftly reached back with his heel to direct home Tavernier's low cross to make it 3-1.
Leeds struck back when substitute Sam Greenwood curled a shot into the top corner, and captain Liam Cooper headed the home team level in the 68th minute from Brenden Aaronson's corner.
Leeds has a midweek League Cup match at Wolverhampton and visits Tottenham next Saturday before the World Cup break.
Bournemouth hosts Everton twice before the six-week pause - on Tuesday in the League Cup and on Saturday in the Premier League.
