Marcelo Bielsa’s side preserved back-to-back clean sheets to climb to 11th place

Football News

For the first time this season, Marcelo Bielsa’s side preserved back-to-back clean sheets to climb to 11th place.

On Tuesday, Leeds routed West Bromwich Albion 5-0 for their biggest win since returning to the Premier League.

Until quick-fire first-half goals from Ezgjan Alioski, Jack Harrison, and Rodrigo, Romaine Sawyers’ own goal set the stage for the hosts.

In the second half, Raphinha also netted as Leeds posted its biggest top division victory since a 6-1 victory over Charlton in 2003, a year before being relegated.

For the first time this season, Marcelo Bielsa’s side retained clean back-to-back sheets to climb to 11th place. Sam Allardyce suffered his worst home defeat in the league in his managerial career in his third game in charge of next-from-last West Brom.

Leeds ripped down a home side that was promoted last season to the Premier League with it.

This month, Allardyce replaced Slaven Bilic, and the impressive point at Liverpool on Sunday indicated the latest tactics of the manager had already sunk in.

But after nine minutes against Leeds, it was a lamentable start.

Sawyers attempted a back pass to Sam Johnstone under pressure from Rodrigo and failed to spot where the goalkeeper was. This meant that Johnstone, who had shifted to the left of his goal, was only able to watch as the ball rolled in.
