Match facts
In meetings between Stoke City and Leeds United at Stoke, there has not been a goalless draw in the last 25 games in all competitions since a 0-0 stalemate in October 1966.
Leeds have lost three of their past four league matches against Stoke (W1 D0 L3), losing 1-2 at the Bet365 Stadium last season.
Stoke, who are now winless in 10 league games (P10 W0 D5 L5), have not suffered a longer such run outside of the top-flight since a 16-match streak without victory between September and December 2002.
Leeds are looking to win three straight away games in the Championship for the first time in 2019, last doing so against Sheffield United, Bolton and Aston Villa in December 2018.
Stoke (28) and Leeds (30) have faced the fewest shots in the Championship so far this season, though the Potters have conceded 10 times, and the Whites just twice. Indeed, the fortunes of the two clubs could not be more contrasting, with the away side sitting top and the home side sitting bottom of the division after four matches.
Against Brentford last time out, Leeds striker Eddie Nketiah became just the 14th different Whites player to score in his first two appearances for the club - should he score against Stoke, Nketiah will be the first player since Frank Fidler in 1951 to score in his first three appearances for Leeds United.

Well, we've not got the best record away from home against this lot but i'm hoping that confidence is going to be a key factor, we should in theory bury this lot but unfortunately football has a way of turning up shock results, Not this time though.........0-2 Scoreline with Bamford and Cooper scoring

I love Berardi as well. I know he became enemy no 1 when he was sent off in the semi final playoff, but he wasn’t the only one to mess up. Casilla was the player I blamed because he started the rot! I would have been upset had Berardi been transferred in the summer. He has always given 100% from the minute he joined the club in that first season under Cellino’s ownership. He must know about ups and downs as well as any Leeds fan.

Berardi had an excellent game today. My initial worries were proved needless. We rarely looked troubled in defence. White is proving to be great signing. Very classy and intelligent. Reads the game well.

All in all, a convincing win albeit against a team who look to have serious problems.

Remember he was quickly labelled as another of the Cellino flops when he was sent off several times early on, he came in against Derby to replace the injured Warnock at LB and he was faultless, kept getting in the side after that. Model pro

Was that not about the time the whole team were labelled flops?..
