PLAYER RATINGS: Leeds 2-0 Derby – Bielsa’s men extend lead at the top of the table

Leeds United have extended their lead at the top of the Championship table after beating Derby County tonight.

It was already a big clash for the two sides, but events earlier this afternoon made it an even more interesting meeting as Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa admitted before the game that he sent a ‘spy’ to watch Derby training.

Lampard vented his frustration at the situation, stating prior the match to Sky Sports, “At least, on a sportsman’s level, it’s bad in my opinion. If we’re going to start talking about ‘culturally, I did it somewhere else’ – that doesn’t work for me.

“If I’m lucky enough to do well and travel to another country I’ll find out what the etiquette is in that country and abide by that.

“It’s disrupted our build-up to this game. People are going to say I’m trying to make an excuse – but I’m going to speak like this after the game win, lose or draw.”

Moving on from that and to the game now and the first goal came from the Kemar Roofe after 20 minutes.

Jack Harrison doubled the lead minutes into the second half when Ezgjan Alioski just about crossed back to Harrison who hit home from two yards to seal a 2-0 win.
