Frank Lampard reveals why Leeds United beat Derby in Championship demolition job

Muhamed Besic of Everton during the pre-season friendly between Blackburn Rovers and Everton at Ewood Park

Lampard's first game in charge of Derby had been less impressive as they scraped a last-gasp victor at Reading. Only a matter of minutes after Roofe's second of the afternoon, it all but ended Derby's chances and made sure of Leeds' 100% record thus far.

There was nothing the former England worldwide could do about Roofe's second goal, though, the striker collecting a Klich pass and brilliantly spinning away from two defenders to thunder in a powerful drive that beat Carson at his near post.

"It was tough", he said. We went into the game under no illusions and knew it would be hard for us. They outnumbered us in too many areas and that can't happen.

The Whites then threatened to double their lead four minutes later when Samu Saiz played the ball to Alioski who hammered an effort over the bar.

"There were a lot of lessons for us".

"Leeds have come to our place and looked more confident than us.it comes down to the basics of football, if you don't move the ball quickly enough and you're not courageous enough and your quality is not quite good enough then it's hard to get out and we weren't good enough today". The most disappointing thing for me is we went away from what we are.

Derby's sole comfort was a stellar strike from Tom Lawrence early in the first half.

Following a 3-1 win over Stoke last weekend, Leeds were in good form again as former Argentina and Marseille coach Bielsa won his battle with ex-Chelsea star Lampard, who was taking charge of the Rams at home for the first time. 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. So it is very important to bear this in mind.

"But the performance of the team was better today than last Sunday, the performance of some players lasted longer".
