Derby County sign Huddersfield Town left-back Scott Malone

While Kemar Roofe couldn't help but stress that they had only played two games yet in his post-match comments, Leeds United have started life under Marcelo Bielsa in the best way imaginable.

Chelsea legend Lampard was appointed the Derby manager in the summer - his first senior managerial job.

Leeds' lead was short-lived though, Derby equalising seven minutes later when the impressive Tom Lawrence fired in a 12th minute free-kick after he was fouled on the edge of the Leeds United area.

Both teams were playing at a high tempo and Leeds went back in front in the 21st minute when Alioski whipped in a cross from the left and Roofe got between Fikayo Tomori and Max Lowe to head past Carson.

When Tom Lawrence's free-kick was badly misjudged by 21-year-old goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell the Rams were swiftly level, but Ezgjan Alioski's flawless left-wing cross was headed in by Kemar Roofe to restore the Leeds lead.




There was nothing the former England global could do about Roofe's second goal, though, the striker collecting a Klich pass and brilliantly spinning away from two defenders to thunder in a powerful drive that beat Carson at his near post. We went into the game under no illusions and knew it would be hard for us. They are a good team, had more energy with the ball and without it so lots of lessons for us really.

Hernandez made a great run to pull the ball back from the right for Alioski to head past Carson, and Saiz should have had a fifth for the visitors but miskicked with the goal at his mercy.

But Bielsa isn't getting carried away and said: "We are very focused". But what happened in the games so far does not mark a definite trend, it's too early to make conclusions.

"If you play as we did against a team like Leeds when they're on their game, you'll lose".
