Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa back on top after Klich sparks win at Norwich

25 August 2018 04:06
The Marcelo Bielsa revolution continues apace at Leeds, who returned to the top of the Championship table thanks to two goals in five first-half minutes and a smashing second-half strike by Pablo Hernández. The Spaniard’s finish came after Mateusz Klich and Ezgjan Alioski had struck a quickfire salvo and left Leeds with 13 points from 15 available since the enthronement of Bielsa, who is applying a new method at Leeds and fuelling hopes of a long-awaited return to the top flight, from which Leeds have been estranged since 2004.With 41 matches to go in the regular season no one is counting chickens even if Leeds fans crowed about their supremacy here. That is part of the fun of supporting a team that is making progress after years of thwarted ambition. Norwich fans also have lofty aims but spirits are not high at Carrow Road, where the home fans reacted to this result with boos.
