GALLERY: Leeds United 3 – 0 Fulham – Whites imperious at Elland Road

It was meant to be a hard game for Leeds United yesterday at Elland Road against a talented Fulham outfit. Whilst they laboured in the opening 45 minutes, the home side Whites eventually pulled away to a comfortable 3-0 victory that sent them to the top of the table.

First half – all Fulham bar the goals

It was all Fulham in the opening 45 minutes of the game. They pounded at Leeds United after the Whites had controlled the earliest passages of play. They dominated first-half possession, yet still went in at half time 1-0 down courtesy of Patrick Bamford’s 14th goal of the season.

Bielsa saw what was lacking at the legendary Argentinian made the changes. On came Gjanni Alioski and Pablo Hernandez and both proved integral to a second-half transformation. Alioski scored in the 56th minute and Hernandez produced a peach of a pass for the assist of the season as Jack Harrison scored his sixth goal of the campaign.
