Leeds United battled their way to an amazing 3-1 victory against Leicester on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.

Goals from Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison sealed all three points at the King Power after Harvey Barnes had opened the scoring.

It made it the perfect week for Marcelo Bielsa, who has seen his side take six points from two away wins after coming under criticism.

It was the perfect away performance in many ways, and it was the Whites’ first win against a top-six side this season in the Premier League.

The Foxes may have been without the likes of Jamie Vardy and Wilfrid Ndidi, but there can be no excuses about the scoreline at the King Power.

Leeds had fewer shots on goal and less possession in the game, and also finished with a lower expected goal total – showing they were expertly clinical, something on show for the third strike.

With teams struggling in the Premier League, and along with games-in-hand, the Whites will be targeting the top-half, and why not based on this performance?

We asked our MOT Super Fans to select their Man of the Match from the 3-1 victory, and there were plenty of candidates thrown into the mix.

Harrison, Dallas and Bamford all got their mentions, but it appears as though the striker gets the nod in the end.
