Jermaine Jenas was blown away by Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford for his performance in the 4-3 victory against Fulham on Saturday.
The Whites attacker scored his second goal of the season in as many games, and also added an assist for Helder Costa’s second-half finish.
The Match of the Day pundit claimed that the 27-year-old is now showing his clinical streak as he enters the Premier League once again this season.
Jenas praised Bamford for his ability to fit into Marcelo Bielsa’s system, as he keeps his spot ahead of record-signing Rodrigo.
“I think he’s a player that a lot of Leeds fans sat on the fence with,” he said on Match of the Day.
“They know that the work rate he brings to the table, but did he have that clinical nature? Bielsa knows what he brings to the table for Leeds and he fits into their system very well.
“Is he clinical enough? That’s a lovely cool and composed finish, that’s two in two games for him. It was a really good, strong performance from Bamford, and actually, a really great start for this season.”
Jenas is spot on, Bamford has been superb this season so far and if we were playing the devil’s advocate, he could have scored more than his two.
Bamford did everything at Elland Road, winning the penalty as well as his goal involvements. A sign of his clinical ability? He also scored from his only shot all afternoon.
The forward never stopped running, and appears to be relishing the chance to prove himself in the Premier League this season after some failed attempts.
