LEEDS United will issue lifetime bans to any supporters found to have thrown objects onto the pitch during their defeat to Manchester United.

Anthony Elanga was struck on the head by a coin as the away side celebrated re-taking the lead in Sunday's Premier League clash.

The Sweden Under-21 international recovered to net a late goal and secure a 4-2 win at Elland Road.

Now Leeds have acted and plan to come down hard on any fans shown to have thrown missiles.

"Leeds United are reviewing CCTV footage and we will do everything possible to find those supporters who are throwing objects onto the field of play," a Leeds spokesperson said.

"Any supporter caught throwing objects onto the pitch will be issued a lifetime ban from attending our fixtures."

West Yorkshire Police confirmed a number of arrests had been made before and during the match.

"Police made a total of nine arrests following Sunday's football match between Leeds United and Manchester United at Elland Road football stadium," a statement read.

"Police resources were deployed throughout Leeds city centre and outside the grounds before, during and following the match to ensure the safety of fans travelling to and from the game with minimal inconvenience to the general public.

"There were no reported injuries to any players or fans on either side."

Russ Foster, deputy chief constable, added: "High profile football matches, such as yesterday's fixture can clearly attract some of the greatest concentrations of people and there were a few incidents both before and during the game.

"We also made a handful of arrests for a number of offences including public order, throwing of missiles and breach of banning order.

"The majority of fans on both sides behaved appropriately throughout the match and there was no significant disorder.

A Football Association investigation is currently ongoing.
