Rampant Leeds continue good start with impressive demolition of Derby

Last week it was Gary Rowett's Stoke, on Saturday Frank Lampard's Derby.

Lampard will now be charged to do better than that and take Derby back to the top flight for the first time since 2008, when the club was relegated with just 11 points.

It made little difference to a dominant Leeds team with Kemar Roofe scoring twice in addition to goals for Mateusz Klich and Ezgjan Alioski.

"If you play as we did against a team like Leeds when they're on their game, you'll lose".

Derby brought in Martyn Waghorn and the £5million signing from Ipswich had a chance in the fourth minute but scuffed his shot and Mason Mount could not convert the rebound. Lawrence smashed the free kick over the wall and through the grasp of Peacock-Farrell, who appeared to have the shot covered.

Tom Lawrence hit back for Derby when his swerving free-kick deceived Leeds keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell and evaded his dive for the ball to end in the net.

Manchester United prepared to pay £100m for Real Madrid's Raphael Varane?
Not just because of the harmony they've had since Jurgen Klopp has been there, but also the signings they've done early. However, Spurs could go back in for Grealish, 22, next summer if Villa fail to get promoted.

The 24-year-old scored six goals in 42 games last term and with two in two already in this campaign, he will be one to watch throughout Lampard's debut season in management.

But he feels it will be interesting to see how Leeds cope away from home, where Derby should draw energy from the crowd, and has urged his players to make the most of it.

Dishing out a 4-1 win tonight, Leeds were relentless.

Only a desperate block in the area from a Luke Ayling shot then denied Leeds a third and the superb Saiz then produced another energetic run from midfield before firing straight at Scott Carson.

Roofe slammed the ball high past Carson to register his second of the game.

Barry Douglas fed Alioski on the left flank and the Macedonian winger produced a ideal cross that was met by a towering Roofe to send the ball back where it came from into the far corner of the net.
