Title challengers Leicester City were unbeaten in seven Premier League matches when they kicked off against Leeds United on Sunday, but they were unable to handle Patrick Bamford.

The 27-year-old scored a stunning goal, firing clinically into the top corner, while also setting up Leeds' other two goals as the visitors triumphed 3-1.

That devastating display has earned Bamford a place in Alan Shearer's Team of the Week, alongside his team-mate and fellow goalscorer Stuart Dallas.
