McDermott has steered Leeds to successive wins in his first two games in charge and it was the manner of their success over Burnley on Tuesday night that most pleased the Elland Road crowd.

"I try to play a system that suits the players," McDermott said. "When I was at Reading we had two wingers, we had to play a pressing game and got out of the league playing that way.

"We won a lot of games 1-0, we were difficult to play against and this team here have got players who can pass the ball, so we play that way.

"I enjoyed watching them. We had a lot of the ball, players were comfortable on the ball and they looked like they wanted the ball.

"That's the most important thing because you have to be brave when you play football. You have to want the ball and they did.

"If you look at the possession stat I would say we were well out in front."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
