Leeds United have started the new Championship campaign in blistering form, recording two consecutive victories to fire the club to the top of the table immediately.

There is rightly excitement among the Whites faithful after 3-1 and 4-1 wins over Stoke City and Derby County respectively.

With Marcelo Bielsa in charge and the Leeds hierarchy splashing the cash over the summer, there is every reason to believe the Yorkshire outfit will be pushing for promotion this season.

While the likes of Kemar Roofe, Samu Saiz and Pablo Hernandez have been getting plaudits for their early season form, there is another man that deserves major credit.

Mateusz Klich signed for Leeds last summer from FC Twente but failed to make an impact in England, with a loan stint at Utrecht in the second half of the campaign.

However, after returning to Elland Road, the Poland international has been given a fresh lease of life by Bielsa and starred so far this season.

A well-taken opening goal gave Leeds the advantage on Saturday and Klich’s composure on the ball and range of passing have been a key element to the side’s success.

While new signings will play their part in the Whites’ push towards promotion, the Polish midfielder is as good as a fresh face in the side’s boiler room and can be an important man this season.
