Marcelo Bielsa impact continues as Leeds dismantle Frank Lampard's Derby County

"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", Lampard added.

And the impressive victory was achieved with 10 of the same players who could not get Leeds into a top half finish last season.

Lampard has been active in the transfer window, bringing in nine players including Jack Marriott, Martyn Waghorn, Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Harry Wilson.

And while Leeds 'keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell definitely could have done better, there's no denying the quality of the hit.

Frank Lampard has attracted heavy criticism on social media after his Derby team slumped to a 4-1 defeat at home to Leeds United.

Barry Douglas fed Alioski on the left flank and the Macedonian winger produced a flawless cross that was met by a towering Roofe to send the ball back where it came from into the far corner of the net. Carson was called into action to deny Roofe at point blank range with Tomori making a last-ditch block to deny Ayling on the rebound.

The Leeds manager, Marcelo Bielsa, continued to burnish his credentials as one of the best coaches in world football as his team maintained their flawless start to the season by once again brushing aside one of the Championship's fancied teams.

Derby's sole comfort was a stellar strike from Tom Lawrence early in the first half.

An unstoppable United then bagged a fourth just four minutes later when terrfiic work from Hernandez sent the ball back into the area for Alioski who headed past a despairing Carson to the sheer delight of the away fans.

It was Lawrence's late header last weekend that completed the comeback for Derby County against Reading and on Saturday, he showed that he's not too shabby with the ball at his feet either. Subs not used: Roos, Forsyth, Pearce, Marriott.
