The quality of Leeds movement forward caused Derby problems from the start and it was no surprise when Mateusz Klich fired a low shot past Scott Carson in the fifth minute.

"I have spoken before about it being important to have options across all areas and Scott provides another one for us, but I think it's also important to mention that Max Lowe has been fantastic in the games so far".

Ezgjan Alioski sealed an eye-catching victory with a powerful header as Leeds produced a stunning attacking display.

And instead it was Derby who were able to level matters in the 12th minute after Liam Cooper fouled Lawrence on the edge of the box.

Frank Lampard has attracted heavy criticism on social media after his Derby team slumped to a 4-1 defeat at home to Leeds United. Pablo Hernandez did brilliantly to reach the ball and pull it back before it went over the by-line and Alioski arrived to power a header into an unguarded net. Carson was called into action to deny Roofe at point blank range with Tomori making a last-ditch block to deny Ayling on the rebound.

Mr Kennedy Jr, the son of the late U.S. senator, said: "I think the verdict is going to trigger a cascade of new cases". Although not involved in the just-concluded trial, the firm represents more than 100 clients now with similar claims.

However, in a development that may have hampered this Leeds side last season, Derby replied in quick fashion; Tom Lawrence with a free-kick that the Leeds 'keeper will not look back on fondly.

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

A 4-1 lead should have then become 5-1 but Saiz sliced an effort wide after a Cooper through ball.

It was little surprise that Bielsa, retained the starting lineup that disposed of Stoke so impressively on the opening weekend of the Championship season.

After a busy deadline day, Lampard has four new Derby signings available with striker Martyn Waghorn looking to make his debut following his move from Ipswich Town. Subs not used: Blackman, Jansson, Roberts, Harrison.
