Leeds United booked their spot in the second round of the League Cup with a 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road on Tuesday night.
The Whites entered the match off the back of two victories at the start of the new Championship campaign, and made it three in a row courtesy of goals from Patrick Bamford and Samuel Saiz.
Saiz has already provided one assist in two Championship appearances this term, and he set up Bamford’s opener against Bolton before adding the second himself.
The 27-year-old was simply too good for Bolton on the night, and the Leeds fans cannot believe just how impressive the Spaniard was at Elland Road.
Saiz’s manipulation of the ball and choice of pass was pretty much perfect during his 69 minutes on the field, and the 5ft 9in tall ace was a key contributor to the team’s success.
The Leeds fans have had plenty to be excited about in the early stages of the new campaign, and were out in force to hail Saiz’s performance on Tuesday night.

Saiz is on a different planet to the rest of the players in the Championship. Big Call to say, but i think he is the best player we have had since relegated from the Premier League. Such an elite talent #MOT

Steaming Sáiz! Certainly earned a goal with all that he’s already created.
