Frank Lampard would have been proud of Tom Lawrence's lovely free-kick

Scott Malone in action for Huddersfield

It was Leeds United who drew first blood in the 5th minute when the rejuvenated Mateusz Klich finished well from distance after good work from Spanish duo Samu Saiz and Pablo Hernandez.

Matheusz Klich opened the scoring for Leeds and despite Tom Lawrence equalising, a Kemar Roofe double and Ezgjan Aliosi's header sent Lampard tumbling to defeat.

Bielsa's Whites then ran riot in the second half with Roofe hammering home a brilliant second goal on the hour mark before Gjanni Alioski's header bagged Leeds a fourth just four minutes later.

"This is my first job as a manager, but I've worked closely with some of the best coaches in the game and I'm confident in my own abilities and those of the team around me, including the board", he told Derby's official website.

"But we're only two games in".

"I had my shot at it, which was really exciting, and we didn't get relegated".

"More energy in them without the ball and with the ball".

"Recent arrivals have meant that we can't give Scott the amount of playing time he would like this season and when the opportunity to join Derby came about, the deal made sense for everyone".

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa, speaking though an interpreter, said: "It was more clear during the second half but in the first half we suffered some actions that could have allowed our rivals to score goals".

"I have spoken before about it being important to have options across all areas and Scott provides another one for us, but I think it's also important to mention that Max Lowe has been fantastic in the games so far".

For one user, this trnover in players may end badly.

"But the performance of the team was better today than last Sunday, the performance of some players lasted longer".
