Leeds United turned in a sensational performance on Saturday afternoon, beating Stoke City 3-0 away from home.

The Whites went into the game sitting top of the Championship table, and remain there after swatting aside the Potters with ease.

A superb passing move saw Stuart Dallas open the scoring in the first half, latching onto a frankly incredible pass from Pablo Hernandez to slot past Adam Federici.

 

More scintillating approach play saw Patrick Bamford cross for Ezgjan Alioski to tap in the second, before Bamford himself got on the scoresheet with a fine left-footed finish.

Marcelo Bielsa's side are going to take some stopping this season, and whilst the focus is on the attacking play, one defender stood out too.

Centre back Ben White has enjoyed a fantastic start to life at Elland Road, showing no signs of pressure despite being signed to replace Pontus Jansson.

The 21-year-old impressed yet again on Saturday, not only with his defensive play but also with the ball at his feet, leaving many dazzled by the Brighton loanee's performance.

Supporters have taken to Twitter to suggest that White is just too good for the Championship already, and are begging Leeds to splash the cash to sign him permanently, even feeling that he's better for the Leeds team than Jansson was.
