Very Impressive - Frank Lampard Admits Noting Leeds United's Strong Start

Leeds gatecrashed Frank Lampard's party with a powerful attacking display that swept Derby aside 4-1 at Pride Park.

Chelsea legend Lampard was appointed the Derby manager in the summer - his first senior managerial job.

Matheusz Klich opened the scoring for Leeds and despite Tom Lawrence equalising, a Kemar Roofe double and Ezgjan Aliosi's header sent Lampard tumbling to defeat.

What hopes Derby fans had that their side might mount a comeback in the second-half were dented on the hour when a sublime turn in the box by Roofe, the Leeds United striker spinning away from a bemused Fikayo Tomori, gave the former Oxford United man the space to lash a shot into the roof on the net.

Leeds regained the lead through Roofe, the striker rising between two Derby defenders to loop a header beyond Carson from Alioski's left-wing cross after the home side had failed to clear their lines.

"There were no surprises but we didn't deal with them".

The declaration that was issued on Wednesday will also allocate a whopping $2million to pay for response measures. The National Park Service (NPS) has granted official permits to multiple counter-protests in Washington D.C.

"This is my first job as a manager, but I've worked closely with some of the best coaches in the game and I'm confident in my own abilities and those of the team around me, including the board", he told Derby's official website.

"I'm quick and like to get forward - when I was at Fulham I scored six goals and had a few more assists too".

"Leeds have come to our place and looked more confident than comes down to the basics of football, if you don't move the ball quickly enough and you're not fearless enough and your quality is not quite good enough then it's hard to get out and we weren't good enough today". We didn't have control of midfield in the first-half, hence bringing Bradley Johnson on, and although we were initially better we can't just play good games in small bits.

Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United continued their fine start to the Championship season with a 4-1 demolition of Derby County.

"I think Leeds showed a great amount of energy in their team and they certainly deserved to win that game".
