On-pitch matters

Leeds, though, were the better team on Friday evening and deservedly picked up all three points from the Championship game against Derby courtesy of a 2-0 win.

The victory saw Bielsa’s side stop a run of three games in all competitions without a win, and the Whites could now go on and put together a run of positive results.

Leeds will return to action next weekend when they take on Stoke City away from home in the Championship.
