Leeds United’s Patrick Bamford has broken Sheffield United hearts after a 87th minute header gave Marcelo Bielsa’s side all three points in a hard-fought Yorkshire derby at Bramall Lane.
Bamford’s late header came against the run of play as Sheffield United looked increasingly more likely to break the deadlock. The young striker becomes Leeds United’s first-ever player to score in three consecutive Premier League games.
Leeds United midfielder Jack Harrison broke free on the left flank and whipped in a pinpoint delivery which Bamford gladly took advantage of.
Leeds United’s latest win sees them remain in the Premier League’s top-half with a home tie against Manchester City on October 3 next up for Bielsa’s men.
