A lot of Leeds United fans are praising the impact of Patrick Bamford during the Whites’ 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Marcelo Bielsa started with Eddie Nketiah, but he struggled to deal with the physicality of the West Brom defence.

Was Bamford Leeds' best player against West Bromwich Albion?

Yes, he changed the game

He was replaced by Bamford, who made an immediate impact as he headed the ball off Semi Ajayi and into the net.

This would have been the 26-year-old’s 11th goal of the season, but it was ruled as an own goal by the Baggies centre-back.

However, Bamford’s contribution did not go unnoticed, and many Leeds fans were happy with his impact.

What do we think?

Bamford, who is valued at £5.4m by Transfermarkt, is essential to the way Leeds play because he can hold the ball up and bring others into play.

Nketiah proved in his two league starts that he could not do this as well as Bamford, and though he scored some important goals for the Whites, Leeds might not actually miss him.

Bamford will likely remain Bielsa’s first-choice when fit, and it is up to whoever the Whites bring in to prove that they deserve to start over the former Crystal Palace man.

This performance against West Brom was gritty and determined, and it was an example of why Bielsa likes Bamford so much.
