Unbeaten Leeds top the Championship table

Leeds United fought back to preserve their unbeaten start to the season with an exhilarating draw at Swansea City.

The draw also maintains Swansea’s unbeaten record and lifts them to third in the table.

And while their effervescent performance will have encouraged manager Graham Potter, the result will be tinged with the disappointment that the Swans were unable to turn their dominance into victory.

As it was, ending Leeds’ perfect start to the season was a commendable achievement in itself.

Leeds had won all three of their previous matches with a swagger, scoring nine goals and playing with the high-octane intensity which has defined the career of their world-renowned manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Swansea, however, had ground their way to two victories and a draw, an impressive feat under Potter considering his limited resources after a summer of stunted transfer activity which prompted strong criticism of the club’s owners.
