Summer signing Firpo made his fifth Whites league start in Saturday's clash against the Hornets and impressed from left back as he faced a battle with Watford's Premier League player of the month nominee Ismaila Sarr.

The Hornets winger was kept quiet throughout as part of a contest in which Marcelo Bielsa's Whites finally bagged their first victory of the new top-flight campaign at the seventh time of asking.

The triumph took Leeds out of the drop zone and on to six points after seven games played, three points clear of the bottom three and in 16th place heading into the October international break.
