Leeds United bounced back from the disappointing draw with Luton with a 3-1 victory against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Marcelo Bielsa made two changes at Ewood Park, bringing in Barry Douglas and Ezgjan Alioski coming into the side in Lancashire.

Goals from Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich sealed all three points on an afternoon full of controversy.

Leeds’ gap to Brentford remains at six points, although the Bees have the chance to cut that to three in midweek with the Whites not playing until Thursday.

West Brom’s win over Hull City on Sunday means that the gap between the top-two has been kept at one point after this round of fixtures.

The Whites kept 59.7% possession in the win, had six more shots on goal as well as completing almost 150 more passes in the dominant win [WhoScored].

It was the heavily-criticised Bamford who was given the WhoScored Man of the Match award, although our super fans had differing views.

We asked our esteemed panel of super fans for their saints and sinners from the convincing 3-1 victory at Ewood Park.

Douglas, Klich and Ben White all took the majority of the plaudits in Lancashire, with Bielsa clearly delighted with his side after the victory.

The referee was given the Sinner award, which shows how good Leeds were throughout.

With Stuart Dallas and Helder Costa set to return for the clash with Stoke on Thursday, El Loco is set to have a selection headache at Elland Road.
