Saiz fired United into a fourth-minute lead after good work from Kalvin Phillips and Lasogga and then doubled his tally just ten minutes later after Gjanni Alioski caused a scramble in the City defence from Eunan O’Kane’s through ball.

And after Saiz had missed a near enough open goal for his hat-trick, Leeds bagged their third in the 67th minute when Lasogga clinically converted a Kalvin Phillips corner.

The impressive victory ended a run of three-straight defeats in emphatic style as Leeds moved back up to fourth.
