Leeds United opened their 2018-19 Championship campaign with a 3-1 win over Stoke City at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon.
It was just about the perfect start for new head coach Marcelo Bielsa, who saw his side overcome a Stoke team that have been heavily tipped to win the Championship this term.
Mateusz Klich opened the scoring in the 15th minute of the match, and the midfielder was outstanding until he left the field in the 76th minute.
Klich only made four Championship appearances for Leeds last season, and the 6ft ace finished the campaign on loan at FC Utrecht due to his struggles.

The Poland international featured regularly for Leeds during pre-season, however, and was named in the starting XI against Stoke.
There is no question that the midfielder has a lot of talent, and he has been tipped to star at Elland Road by the Leeds fans this season.
Next up for the Whites is a clash with Derby County on Saturday, and Klich will be looking to put in another impressive performance.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Leeds supporters can be seen below:
