Gary Lineker reacts to Leeds 2-0 win over Crystal Palace

Leeds United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on Monday night in the Premier League, which resulted in praise from Gary Lineker on Twitter.

The Whites were dominant for large spells during their victory at Elland Road over Palace.

Jack Harrison opened the scored within three minutes with his deflected shot, while early in the second-half Patrick Bamford got his customary goal with a simple tap-in into an empty net.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side jumped up to 10th in the league table above Arsenal with three points and their return to the top-flight has gone superbly so far.

The Yorkshire giants are a colossal 17 points above the relegation zone, which is why they are rightfully being ambitious about high up the league table they can finish this season.

Lineker gave huge credit to Leeds after their performance, pointing out that they are not a team that ever park the bus with their eye-catching attacking style of play.

 

TBR’s View:

Leeds thoroughly deserved their win over Palace, enjoying 69 per cent possession in the contest and also attempting 17 shots.

A low point in the season was a crushing 4-1 defeat away to Palace back in November, but they’ve managed to avenge that with an excellent performance.

English striker Bamford is someone putting his name up in lights with such consistent performances, but attacking teammate Raphinha was once again outstanding on Monday and looks a top-class player.
