Leeds United secured their first Premier League win in 16 years after playing Fulham had defeated on Saturday at Elland Road.
After Marcelo Bielsa was involved in a pulsating 4-3 thriller against Liverpool last weekend, he prevailed 4-3 against his rivals, with the result favoring the hosts this time.

After the game, Argentine legend Juan Pablo Sorin went on Twitter to express his reaction. Like many others, Sorin is a big fan of Bielsa and is enthusiastic about Leeds' appearance in the Premier League.
Popular football journalist Tim Vickery replied to his tweet.
Lembra de Nosso Encontro Em 2016 Quando falei que Bielsa deveria ser tecnico da selecao inglesa?
Vc achou uma ideia brilhante – ate lembrou que assim vc teria que torcer for Inglaterra!
Mas comodo como hincha de Leeds! September 19, 2020
The tweet from Sorin, when translated into English, reads: " 3-4 lost to champions Liverpool and now against Fulham 4-3 / show and swindle guarantees that Leeds @LUFC  by Marcelo Bielsa! First 3 points in @premierleague "
Vickery's answer in English -" Do you remember our meeting in 2016 when I said that Bielsa was supposed to coach the English team? You thought it was a brilliant idea – you even remembered having to cheer England on! But convenient as a connection to Leeds! “
Leeds' first two Premier League games this season have scored 14 goals.
Helder Costa opened the score for the hosts with a lightning strike from close range.
Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a penalty after Robin Koch fouled Joe Bryan.
Mateusz Klich restored the lead to the home team with a penalty after Bryan fouled Patrick Bamford.
Bamford scored his second goal of the season to keep Leeds firmly under control and Leeds seemed to have sealed the win when Costa added a fourth.
Fulham, however, prevailed dramatically with Bobby Decordova-Reid's little drive and Mitrovic's second goal of the day. In the end, Leeds was able to seal all three points on Elland Road well.
