Leeds edge 7-goal thriller against gallant Fulham

Leeds won a seven-goal thriller against Fulham in their first Premier League home game for 16 years.

Leeds' opening two Premier League games this season have seen 14 goals, the most in a top-flight side's opening two matches since Wolves in 1962-63.

Helder Costa opened the scoring for the hosts with powerful close-range effort that went in off the underside of the crossbar.

However, Aleksandar Mitrovic levelled the scores with a penalty after Robin Koch had fouled Joe Bryan.

Mateusz Klich restored Leeds' lead with a penalty after Bryan fouled Patrick Bamford.

Bamford's placed effort just after the interval put Leeds firmly in charge and they looked to have sealed the win when Costa added a fourth.

But Bobby Decordova-Reid's low drive and Mitrovic's second goal of the day for the Cottagers set up a dramatic finale.
