Leeds United’s recent 1-0 win over fellow playoff and promotion hopefuls Derby County was enough to propel Garry Monk’s men into third place. Not only does this win continue their upward momentum in terms of form, it even gives them an outside chance of making the top 2 and earning direct promotion to the Premier League.
It must, however, be noted that the score-line doesn’t quite showcase just how well Leeds played throughout the game. Whilst Derby County certainly had their moments throughout the game, the night belonged to Leeds, both in terms of the score-line and the way they played.
Once such instance of Leeds’ domination can be seen in a beautiful passage of play in the 37th minute of the game, with both Pablo Hernandez and Ronaldo Viera involved. Whilst Hernandez decided to make Derby’s defence look hopeless, Viera was at his with some flashy inter-play with the Spaniard.
Check out the moments when both Hernandez and Viera turned up the heat on Derby’s defence here:
