Leeds United look four-midable in big win at Derby

Leeds United look four-midable in big win at Derby

Leeds got back in front through Kemar Roofer, scoring a looping header not all that dissimilar to Lawrence's winning goal for Derby last weekend.

Lampard will now be charged to do better than that and take Derby back to the top flight for the first time since 2008, when the club was relegated with just 11 points.

That gave the Derby manager the chance to hand debuts to two of his summer signings.

But who did you think stole the show?

Lampard has been active in the transfer window, bringing in nine players including Jack Marriott, Martyn Waghorn, Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Harry Wilson.

Mateusz Klich bent home a stunning strike at the end of a thrilling team move to put the visitors in front inside five minutes at Pride Park on Saturday. We went into the game under no illusions and knew it would be hard for us.

And while Leeds 'keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell definitely could have done better, there's no denying the quality of the hit. Tom Lawrence's direct running was too much for Luke Ayling, the Leeds right-back bringing down the Welsh worldwide outside on the edge of the penalty area.

Kemar Roofe restored Leeds' advantage midway through the half and the striker netted again after the interval before Ezgjan Alioski sealed the rout.

"Leeds have come to our place and looked more confident than us.it comes down to the basics of football, if you don't move the ball quickly enough and you're not courageous enough and your quality is not quite good enough then it's hard to get out and we weren't good enough today".

Leeds are relentless under Bielsa though, rarely allowing opponents time to settle on the ball while they get forward quickly once they have possession. The 25-year-old striker still had a lot of work to do when he received the ball from Klich in a crowded area.
