Palace had the worst possible start at a freezing Elland Road, as Leeds took an early lead via a significant deflection. Picking up the ball on the edge of the area, Jack Harrison made space before letting fly, the ball cannoning off Gary Cahill and past a despairing Vicente Guaita.
Once again, Leeds countered at frightening speed, and this time they were clinical. Raphinha, who was arguably the hosts’ standout player, stormed forwards and found space in behind. His powerful effort was saved well by Guaita, who managed to get a strong wrist behind the ball. However, the rebound fell to Bamford, who stroked the ball into the empty net to double his side’s advantage. It concluded a tough night for Palace, whose continued endeavor ultimately went unrewarded, and whose attention will now turn to Burnley on Saturday.
Terence, Albert and Chris review the game and look ahead to the match with Burnley.
