Patrick Bamford has enjoyed a fine start to life in the Premier League with Leeds United, scoring eight times in 11 games.

The striker was on the scoresheet against his former side on Saturday night, putting Leeds in front in the early minutes of the game against Chelsea.

While the match ended in defeat for Leeds, Bamford’s performance still caught the eye of many fans.

His goal against Chelsea pushed him further up the Premier League goalscoring charts and the 27-year-old is currently level on eight with Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Only Mohamed Salah, Jamie Vardy, Son Heung-Min and Dominic Calvert-Lewin have scored more than him this season. Not bad company.

Previous spells in the Premier League with Burnley, Crystal Palace, Norwich and Middlesbrough did not yield much success for Bamford, who scored just once in 27 appearances, as per Transfermarkt.

Bamford had always been a fairly consistent figure in the Championship, with 61 career goals to his name in the second tier, but he is now stepping up and proving his worth in the top flight under Marcelo Bielsa.

The question was raised recently by Leeds Live, about just how much of a bargain the striker was, following his £7million move from Middlesbrough was back in 2018.

Here are some of the best responses from Leeds fans on social media.
