Leeds United were impressed when they returned to the English Premier League after 16 years of absence.
Marcelo Bielsa's team suffered a narrow 4-3 defeat against Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season before they secured victories over Fulham and Sheffield United.
Leeds held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw on Elland Road on Saturday and England right-back Kyle Walker still can't believe how difficult it was to face them.
The Whites weren't the second best team against Pep Guardiola's side, and that rarely happens.
"It's like basketball," said £ 50 million star Andros Townsend on The ITV Football show.
“I couldn't believe it. Suppose Raheem was playing left and he goes right, her right defender goes right with him. It's incredible. "

Leeds have shown that they are no pushovers, and their struggles against Liverpool and Man. City spoke volumes.
They've made a real statement of intent by holding their own against the top two top division teams and not many are going to bet that they'll end up comfortably in the top half of the Premier League table.
