Bielsa makes club history as el Loco's lethal Leeds rack up fourth straight win

Comments
The West Yorkshire side have now won four out of four with their new manager, a feat no other boss at the club had accomplished

Marcelo Bielsa may have a few problems still with his press conferences in England's Championship, but he has had no trouble whatsoever in getting his ideas across to Leeds United's in-form players. 

The Argentine was one of the more eye-catching managerial appointments over the summer, as he pitched up at Elland Road following an abortive spell in France with Lille last season. 

And while the jury was out on Bielsa before the Championship kicked off, his Leeds team have been a revelation in these opening weeks with a dynamic, attacking football that has proved almost irresistible. 

Having started the campaign with a brilliant 3-1 win over promotion candidates Stoke City, the Yorkshire side followed that feat up by destroying Frank Lampard's Derby County 4-1 at Pride Park. 

A third Championship victory followed in due course on Saturday, with Rotherham dispatched 2-0 in a match dominated from start to finish by Leeds. 

That leaves the Whites three from three in the Championship so far - and a further win over Bolton Wanderers in the Carabao Cup means Bielsa has made an historic start to life at Elland Road.

Never before had a new Leeds manager won his first four competitive matches at the helm, and expectations are now sky-high around the club after netting 11 goals and conceding just three in those opening tests. 

Can El Loco sustain this brilliant start and guide Leeds back to the Premier League after 14 years in the wilderness?
