Goals from Sam Clucas and Joe Allen sealed the win for the Potters. Leeds got one back through Alioski in the dying seconds but that wasn’t enough to salvage something from the game.
Pontus Jansson was sent off for the league leaders.
Marcelo Bielsa won’t be too happy with his side’s performance against Stoke City and he will be demanding a reaction from his players in their next game.
Despite the defeat, Leeds United are one point clear at the top of the Championship table.
However, Norwich and Sheffield United are closing in and the Whites cannot afford to keep dropping points at this stage of the season.
Leeds fans weren’t too happy with Mateusz Klich’s display against Stoke City and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the 28-year-old’s performance.
Here are some of the fan reactions from earlier.
Klich needs to come off. Looks a passenger. #lufc
