The double of Kemar Roofe helps Marcelo Bielsa to the victory over the Derby of Frank Fampard

If Stoke was the test of fire, this elegant and ruthless Derby assault should serve as a warning to the rest of the Championship that Leeds has something very special in play.

Another promotion contender pressed, intimidated and beaten. Frank Lampard had his first feeling of victory as manager last week, now he knows what it is to lose a lot and he must find a way to regroup his players.

Unfortunately for Lampard, this was another example of how Marcelo Bielsa somehow managed to get his players to receive such a devastating message as soon after taking over in mid-June.

Kemar Roofe was lethal in attack. A reinforcement of his name here that was complemented by the goals of Mateusz Klich and Ezgjan Alioski to give Leeds their first consecutive victory in the league since 2009.

Lampard may have worn the role in his black suit, but he and his players had no idea how to stop Leeds.

Again it was the big press that neutralized the opposition, but not everything was perfect.

Bielsa did not take long to throw his arms when Leeds goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell misjudged Tom Lawrence's foul flight, which gave Derby his only goal.

Long before the start, this game seemed to be one of the most important. We are only in the second week of the campaign, with both sides with 44 league games each to play, but this felt fundamental. So much so that a local newspaper called it "the showdown of the season."

Bielsa was not satisfied enough with the 3-1 victory over Stoke to name a team unchanged. Lampard made two changes from the side that beat Reading 2-1.

Fikayo Tomori replaced Curtis Davies in central defense and Martyn Waghorn, who joined Ipswich for £ 5 million on Wednesday, led a triple attack that included Harry Wilson on the right and Lawrence on the left.

Mason Mount, on loan from Chelsea, scored on his debut at Madejski Stadium and should have had another during the first attack of the Derby game when Waghorn played it, but he squandered the opportunity.

Leeds needed only five minutes for his big pressure, which caused Stoke to feel so much pain when he defeated Derby. Samuel Saiz and Kalvin Phillips did their job of annoyance and haste to perfection once again.

The Derby fullback, Max Lowe, lost possession, Klich took control after the interception of Pablo Hernandez and doubled a shot from outside the Derby area and passed to Scott Carson. Carson should have done better.

He should also Peacock-Farrell when his howler took the level of Derby. Peacock-Farrell saw his mistake again on the big screen and will undoubtedly make him see it a couple of times more.

Bielsa, who spent most of the game perched in a bucket last weekend, made a rare position. He handed out some instructions with hand signals before squatting.

Their gestures only tell players to move forward, not backward, and at breakneck speed. They listened. It was for another high-speed break that Leeds regained the advantage.

Barry Douglas recovered the ball halfway, left Alioski free on the left and the Macedonian forward found Roofe in the box that was ahead of Carson.

Twice Derby had opportunities to return to the game through Waghorn and Craig Bryson before Roofe and Alioski applied the killing blows.

Roofe turns deftly in the Derby area and then crashes into the roof of the goal. Roofe would be involved in the final goal of Leeds.

He attracted the defenders of the Derby, he played the ball to Alioski and sent Carson in the wrong way with a header.
