Patrick Bamford scored an 88th-minute goal to earn Leeds a 1-0 win over Sheffield United, which slipped to a third straight loss to open the Premier League season on Sunday, reports New18 Sports.

Bamford headed home from Jack Harrison’s left-wing cross and has now scored a goal in all three of Leeds’ games on the team’s return to the top division.

Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier produced two brilliant saves, from John Lundstram and George Baldock, to keep the hosts at bay in the first half. The one off Lundstram was particularly special, Meslier flinging himself to his right to instinctively tip a powerful shot around the post.

Sheffield United has yet to score in three league games so far this season, with Chris Wilder’s team struggling to replicate its form from last season when it nearly qualified for Europe.

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds has back-to-back wins, after beating Fulham last weekend.

Southampton 

beat  burnley 1-0 

The only goal of the match came after five minutes when Ings converted Che Adams’ cutback from inside the six-yard area. 

Southampton maintained control of the first half, with Ashley Westwood’s free-kick wide of a post the closest Burnley came to scoring. 

Sean Dyche’s team escalated their search for an equaliser after the restart, with Chris Wood poking the ball past Alex McCarthy, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.

Charlie Taylor’s fierce strike forced a smart save from McCarthy on 58 minutes but Southampton held firm to claim their first points of the season. 

Burnley have lost their opening two matches, conceding five in the process.
