Leeds United fans were rightly buzzing after they put Fulham to the sword and helped dent their promotion charge. It was a masterful display that, coupled with West Brom’s loss to Brentford, sent Leeds top by three points.

It was a result that also stretched their lead over the playoff leaders Brentford to eight points and 10 over Fulham who dropped to 4th.
