Leeds United have picked up just their second Premier League win of the campaign as Marcelo Bielsa’s side edged out a 2-1 win at rock bottom Norwich.

Three points on the board for Bielsa means Leeds now have a barrier from the relegation zone, but as for Norwich, they look to be sliding down at a worrying pace.

And with so much riding on this one for both teams, neither side created much before the break, with Grant Hanley hacking away Dan James’ effort before Matias Norwood flashed one wide.

However, despite a sluggish start, it was three goals in five second half minutes, that ultimately went on to decide this one.

Raphinha brilliantly dipped inside two Norwich tackles to fire Leeds ahead before a resurgent Norwich hit back as Andrew Omobamidele nodded home his first ever Premier League goal.

But with the game still in the balance, the Canaries were brought crashing back down to earth seconds later, as Rodrigo ripped one past Tim Krul.

And whilst Daniel Farke did look to make changes late on, his side simply limped on to another Premier League defeat.
