Leeds win thriller against Fulham

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 475

Leeds moved up to 9th in the Premier League after they beat Fulham on Saturday.

On a day of high drama, Leeds edged Fulham 4-3 to earn their first top-flight victory since 2004 on Saturday.

At Elland Road, promoted Leeds were involved in another eye-catching encounter in their first top-flight home match for 16 years.

After losing 4-3 at champions Liverpool on the opening weekend, Helder Costa fired Marcelo Bielsa's free-scoring side ahead in the fifth minute.

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised from the penalty spot but Leeds soon retook the lead with a spot-kick of their own, converted by Mateusz Klich.

Patrick Bamford and Costa's superb strike looked have Leeds cruising to their first win back in the top-flight by the hour mark.

But Fulham pulled one back in the 62nd minute through Bobby Decordova-Reid and Mitrovic's towering header four minutes later set up a tense finale.

Leeds' opening games have seen 14 goals, which is the most for a top-flight side's first two matches since Wolves in 1962-63.
