The Whites took an early lead through Stuart Dallas before being pegged back by a Son Heung-Min equaliser.

Goals from Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo were then enough to wrap up the victory.

The result means that Leeds stay in the top half of the table, with Aston Villa losing to Manchester United on Sunday.

Speaking after the game, BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand was quick to defend the Whites against critics who have suggested that they have a tendency to tire as the campaign progresses.

He said: "They have not burned out this season and they didn’t last season.

"If you speak to the players, they take it as an insult. I spoke to [Liam] Cooper, the captain and he took it as an insult that people say that about them.

"They back themselves fully, the training sessions are very intense physically and mentally. People look at it and say it’s crazy, but they’re not fighting a relegation battle here, they’re a team that’s on the up and a club that’s on the up.

"Imagine if they had fans in here, that’s the thing. Would it work for them, or would it be pressure that works against them? I don’t know, that will be interesting to see next year.”
