Ronaldo Vieira justifies inclusion with a superb display for Leeds Thomas Christiansen handed 19-year-old Ronaldo Vieira his first league start yesterday in what was a must-win game if the Whites were to rediscover the form they had started the season with.

3 Standout performers for Leeds v Bristol City At long last, Leeds are back on track after a poor run of form. The switch in formation worked wonders, although in saying that it pretty much ended up as a 4-2-3-1 with Kalvin in the 10 role. Either way, it worked.

Morning Leeds-in for 22 October: Leeds dedicate the 3-0 win to Stuart Dallas As bad as the loss against Reading FC looking, this match Leeds looked like the team that was able to run all over the league earlier in the season.

Leeds United's Samuel Sáiz hits swift double to halt Bristol City's charge A wet and windy West Country afternoon could not deter the Bristol City faithful packing Ashton Gate to the rafters.

Here's the ratings… Andy Lonergan - 8 - Didn't have much to do but made saves when necessary and his distribution was much-improved today.
Match Recap: Leeds United vault past Bristol City 3-0 Leeds controlled the early part of the match, and unlike in past matches where Leeds would look good for spells with nothing to show for it, Samu Saiz made sure that Leeds would have a better afternoon, scoring two goals in 15 minutes.

Morning Leeds-in for 21 October: Is Christiansen being a bit too cool for his own good? Is Christiansen playing this too cool? Now, we've seen in the past where Christiansen says one thing and does another, such as stating about how he had full confidence in Felix Wiedwald, only to drop him to the bench the next day, but saying that there shouldn't be a change after three losses in a row seems rather, um, naive?
