Leeds got the better of QPR 2-0 at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
Tyler Roberts put the West Yorkshire outfit in the lead in the 39th minute, and Jack Harrison - signed on loan from Premier League club Manchester City in the summer transfer window - added a second on 82 minutes.
Former Leeds striker Whelan was following the match, and he was impressed with the display produced by Marcelo Bielsa’s side, and believes that the home team could have won by a bigger margin.
Whelan said on BBC Radio Leeds at full time (4:55pm, November 2, 2019): “The intensity, the work rate, the commitment, 100% today, it always is, but relentless determination to keep a clean sheet, going forward some fantastic play.
"Very lucky it was only two. It should have been a lot more, to be honest with you.”
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, hosts Leeds had 49% of the possession, took 18 shots of which six were on target, and earned six corners, according to BBC Sport.
The win against QPR means that the Whites are now at the top of the Championship table with 28 points from 15 matches.
