Derby County team news for Leeds United visit

After a hugely impressive 3-1 defeat of Stoke City on the opening day, Leeds traveled to Pride Park to take on a Derby side that had won their own opening game (and Frank Lampard's) against Reading.

Leeds should have made the points safe in the 56th minute but Scott Carson made a magnificent reaction save to keep out another Roofe header.

Jay Fulton scored the only goal as Swansea beat Preston North End to make it two wins from their opening two matches.

Tom Lawrence equalised with a 12th minute free kick that Bailey Peacock-Farrell should have saved but Leeds responded by retaking the lead through Kemar Roofe's header from Ezgjan Alioski's cross in the 21st minute.

What hopes Derby fans had that their side might mount a comeback in the second-half were dented on the hour when a sublime turn in the box by Roofe, the Leeds United striker spinning away from a bemused Fikayo Tomori, gave the former Oxford United man the space to lash a shot into the roof on the net.

"There were no surprises but we didn't deal with them".

No other team has defeated United more times than Derby since 2010, getting the better of their opponents 10 times.

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".

Marcelo Bielsa's brilliant start as United head coach continued in great style as the team won 4-1 in what was remarkably their first away win since Boxing Day past year.

And just two minutes later United were in front thanks to a brilliant finish from Klich who received the ball on the edge of the area from Pablo Hernandez and then produced a gem of a shot into the bottom right corner for his second goal in two games.

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