Leeds United cruised to a second successive win yesterday as they smashed four goals past Derby County to half Frank Lampard’s winning start to life as a manager.
The Whites were far and away the better side at Pride Park as a host of Leeds players put in superb performances for manager Marcelo Bielsa.
One player in particular who has impressed in the opening two games is attacking midfielder Samuel Saiz, who once again produced a devastating display to dismantle the Rams.
His key stats were highlighted by a Tweet from Statzone, and it made for impressive reading for the Spaniard.
Another great performance from @Samusaiz as #LUFC continue their winning start to the season. Here are the midfielders stats from the 4-1 win against #DCFC. ???? #EFL #MOT @WatkinsonJLtd pic.twitter.com/4gAkpAu3wN

Despite not getting on the scoresheet, the stats around final third passes and dribbles highlight just how important he was, while his touch count was high, something Bielsa will be delighted to see.
Saiz is developing into the key man for the Whites after something of a stop start season last time out, and if he can maintain his form, then there is every chance that Leeds could well find themselves in the promotion picture come the end of the season.
Leeds fans, what have you made to Saiz this season? Give us your thoughts in the comments!
