Leeds produced the performance of the weekend with a win at the King Power but how about that performance by Bamford.He was helped in part by weak defending by Jonny Evans who seemed to forget his role in the team. Wilfred Ndidi’s absence was felt no disrespect intended for Mendy. Raphinha bossed the midfield and his assist for the second goal ranks up there with the best of the season.
The key to the Whites’ victory? Making Schmeichel work and keeping the foxes defence on the backfoot. Out of 8 attempts at goal 7 were on target, 88 percent accuracy compared to just 44% for Leicester. You could see why Ayoze Perez plays second fiddle to Jamie Vardy. A point to note on Bamford he makes his decisions early as seen with his goal and his assist to Harrison does not dilly dally on the ball. Leeds edge towards safety with the victory whilst Leicester’s defeat is music to their title rivals’ ears.
