GOLDEN BOOT RACE: BAMFORD ON TARGET
Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford scored one of the goals as he helped his team to an important win over Southampton in the league thereby boosting his chances of ending the season as the Golden Boot winner in the Premier League. The England player was the recipient of the opening goal as Leeds United beat Southampton 3-0 at home in a rescheduled league fixture. Leeds United had lost their last two league matches ahead of the Southampton game but they were able to return to winning ways courtesy the comprehensive second half display that led to the big win over the Saints.
Patrick Bamford produced a good finish to set Leeds United on their way to victory before Stuart Dallas and Brazilian player Raphinha added two late goals to make it a dominant win for the newly promoted team. Patrick Bamford has been spearheading Leeds United’s push for a place in Europe next season and he is in contention to be part of the England squad for the European Championship this summer.
