Leeds United returned to winning ways after beating Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at Elland Road on Saturday.

Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo scored for the Whites as they recorded a 3-1 victory over Spurs.

Following their disappointing defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion last week, Leeds produced another strong performance against a big team.

Dallas scored the opening goal of the match within 13 minutes, with Gjanni Alioski picking up another assist.

Heung-min Son restored parity for Spurs, but Bamford gave the lead again for the home side just before half-time.

He became the fourth Englishman to score 15+ goals for Leeds in a single Premier League campaign after Lee Chapman (15 in 1992-93), Rod Wallace (17 in 1993-94) & Michael Bridges (19 in 1999-00).

In the second half, Rodrigo found the net towards the end of the game to kill all hopes of a potential comeback from Spurs.

Many Leeds fans took to Twitter to express their reaction to Dallas’ performance. Here are some of the selected tweets:

Dallas has been arguably one of the most consistent performers for Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa, taking his game to a whole new level in the Premier League.

He has scored important goals for Leeds, especially against the big teams.

For Spurs, the defeat is a huge blow to their top-four hopes.
