‘A modern day Allan Clarke’, ‘Magnificent’ – Many Leeds fans rave about performance of one man v Stoke



Leeds United secured a comprehensive 5-0 victory against Stoke City yesterday to move back to the top of the Championship and many Whites fans have heaped praise on Patrick Bamford for his performance. 

The Potters, who are under threat from relegation, were subject to Marcelo Bielsa’s side at their very best at Elland Road last night in what was a dominant performance from the promotion-chasing Whites.

Mateusz Klich gave the hosts a 1-0 half-time lead from the penalty spot before Helder Costa, Liam Cooper, Pablo Hernandez and Patrick Bamford all found the net after the break.

The result means that Leeds are one point clear of West Bromwich Albion in first and have a six-point cushion over of the play-offs with four games remaining.

It also saw Bamford, who has been a divisive figure at Elland Road this season, grab his 16th Championship goal of the 2019/20 campaign.

The Leeds striker, who has remained first-choice throughout the season despite the arrivals of both Eddie Nketiah and Jean-Kevin Augustin, has drawn criticism for not being clinical enough in front of goal this term.

His effort and impact on the side in other parts of his game are huge and Bielsa’s loyalty to him shows just how important a player the Argentine coach feels he is.
