However, Leeds are set to square off against familiar foes in their next top flight outing as they welcome fellow Premier League new boys Fulham to Elland Road on Saturday, and Matteo is of the view that the home fixture is ideal for Leeds to put up their first three points on the league table.

The £36million Spain striker jiggled his pelvis to loosen up for his first start - after coming on as sub in last Saturday's opening 4-3 loss at champions Liverpool.

Aleksander Mitrovic whacked home from 12 yards to equalise.

With the game being played at a punishing high tempo Leeds lived dangerously at times but hung on for their first top-flight victory since April 2004.

"It was a little too close in the end", Bamford, who also scored at Liverpool, told BT Sport.

The West Yorkshire club play good, attacking football, and they are going to be a force to be reckoned with this season. "The third goal made us panic a bit".

Tete headed away a risky ball from Klich, but two minutes later, Leeds doubled their lead.

It needed only five minutes to go ahead as Costa, unmarked at the back post, took a touch and smashed home.

Fulham were back on level terms in the 34th minute as Aleksandar Mitrovic stepped up and hammered in from the penalty spot after Joe Bryan was tripped in the box by Robin Koch. It was four as Costa completed his brace seven minutes after Bamford scored.

In the 50th minute Leeds went 3-1 up thanks to Patrick Bamford who placed the ball into the far corner following a through ball from Klich.

Bobby Reid was sprung from the bench by Scott Parker, and he grabbed one back for the London side.
