Leeds United returned to their best last night with a 2-0 win against fellow promotion hopefuls Derby County at Elland Road, following three straight defeats leading up to the clash.
A Kemar Roofe strike after some fine work from man of the match Jack Clarke gave the Whites the lead in the 20th minute and Jack Harrison tapped home a second early in the second half to kill the game.
The Whites were absolutely rampant and totally outclassed their opponents doing it all in the wake of the now infamous ‘spygate’.
Reaction from Elland Road – Marcelo Bielsa takes sole responsibility for 'Spygate' but says he won't apologise to Frank Lampard for sending a scout to watch Derby County train: https://t.co/sm4l5c519f

A man was spotted watching Derby’s training session on Thursday morning who Bielsa later admitted to sending to do so but also refused to apologise for what he did.
He also made the somewhat surprising admission that he would not rule out doing it again in the future despite the fairly sizeable backlash received this time around.
It is this kind of straight-up honesty that has made the Argentinian such a big hit with the Elland Road faithful and this did very little to change that.
Here is what they had to say…
He was made for us.

Somehow Spygate is to blame for us making a top 6 side look like a bottom 6 side. Played them off the park, couldn't live with our intensity.

Have they got tactics to spy on.Looked like they didn't have a clue what they were doing.

Isn’t he the best. Way to go Marcelo. You owned up and now the media don’t know what to do when someone is honest with them.
