This is part of a regular series from our panel of Leeds United Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Elland Road and Thorp Arch.

Leeds United battled their way to another Premier League victory against Fulham on Friday evening.

The Whites finally ended their London curse by sweeping aside their fellow promoted side by two goals to one at Craven Cottage.

Patrick Bamford and Raphinha got the all-important goals that many believe have handed the Whites survival in the Premier League this season.

Leeds were excellent on Friday evening, in a game that they simply couldn’t afford to lose.

The Whites have never lost three in a row under Marcelo Bielsa, and after they halted that against Chelsea on Saturday, they followed it up perfectly with another win.

Fulham didn’t have any answers for Bielsa’s style, and despite them winning against the likes of Liverpool, Leeds brought them back down to earth with a bang.

According to WhoScored, Leeds only bettered the home side in terms of tackles, but the quality difference was easy to see in each third of the pitch.

With Sheffield United first up at Elland Road after the international break, this is a real opportunity to string together a couple of wins before the toughest run of the season.

We asked our esteemed panel of MOT Super Fans to select their Man of the Match from the victory, and there were a number of candidates.

The two main names that kept popping up though, were Illan Meslier and Kalvin Phillips as the defensive strength of the side got us over the line in the end.
