It was a memorable evening for Marcelo Bielsa's outfit as they toppled the Saints.

Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts on the scoresheet - a first top flight goal for the Wales international - and Gaetano Berardi made his first Premier League appearance off the bench.

Leeds secured a 10th away win of the season and with it also sealed a top half finish in the club's first season back among England's elite.
