Leeds United earned a comfortable 3-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday, meaning the Whites moved eight points clear of third place.
The result is one that could prove to be significant come the end of the campaign, and it will certainly boost a number of players’ confidence heading into the final seven games of the season.
The goals came through Patrick Bamford, Ezgjan Alioski and Jack Harrison as Marcelo Bielsa produced a managerial masterclass at Elland Road.
Bamford, despite receiving a lot of criticism in former games, netted the opener with a well timed finish that left the Fulham goalkeeper easily beaten.
However, although Bamford scored in the first-half, Leeds had been dominated and in truth were lucky to go in at half-time with the lead. This meant Bielsa brought the striker off at half-time in order to change the direction of the game.
Despite coming off, here’s how the Whites fans reacted to Bamford’s 45 minutes against Fulham…
