While it appears the Socceroos midfielder, currently on loan from Manchester City, can do little wrong, Leeds manager Garry Monk said Mooy shouldn't have remained on the field after a lunging tackle in the shadows of half-time.

"Two-footed, off the ground, totally out of control," Monk said.

"I don't want to talk about referees. But if you see that and you can't tell me that's a sending off, I don't know what is.

"It was a horrendous tackle that he made."

Next up for Mooy's Huddersfield is a clash with Brighton and Hove Albion in mid-week action on Wednesday Septemeber 14.
