Leeds United took all three points at the KCOM Stadium, thrashing Hull City 4-0 in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Leeds started quickly, with a goal coming in the first four minutes of play. Hernandez’s cross from the left found Ayling in the centre, twenty or so yards from goal. His shot took a heavy deflection, spinning away from the goalkeeper and nestling in the bottom corner.

Hernandez then had a go at goal himself, this time he opened space on the left side of the box, hitting a straight shot off the upright, almost doubling the Leeds lead in quick time.
These were the only attempts at goal that Leeds had in the first-half, with the rest of the half being scrappy, as Hull looked for an equaliser.
Leeds then struck again in the first couple of minutes of the second half. Harrison’s ball evaded Bamford in the box and was flicked on by a defender to Costa, who brought the ball down before slipping Hernandez through on the right channel. Hernandez turned brilliantly to find the far corner, doubling the Leeds lead.

Leeds were less tense from this point, and looked to bombard the Hull keeper, with efforts from Costa, Klich and Harrison being stopped by the Hull keeper. Hull were still causing a few problems, particularly from corners, Balogh hit the post having turned his man from close-range before his shot smacked the post.
Leeds then managed the third goal, with Tyler Roberts coming off then bench to finish a wonderful move, which started with the Leeds defence playing themselves out of trouble. Costa finds Klich in the penalty area in a lot of space, who makes a first touch pass inside, as Roberts beat Dallas to the finish to put Leeds three goals to the good.

Roberts got his second soon after, as a wonderful ball in-behind the defence from Klich met the diving head of Tyler Roberts, who directed the ball back across the keeper to seal the three points.
