Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich scored his first goals in around 12 months as he helped the side to a 3-1 win over Barnsley.

Leeds are through to the third round of the EFL Cup after brushing aside Barnsley last night at Elland Road, in a game that threatened to slip out of Leeds’ seemingly tight grip.

Luis Sinisterra opened the scoring before he then won a penalty, to be converted by Mateusz Klich as coolly as you like, rolling past a Barnsley ‘keeper for the second time in his Leeds career.

As the Tykes put themselves back in the game through a set-piece, they missed the chance to equalise from the penalty spot, and from that point, Leeds retook full control.

Klich was instrumental to Leeds’ dominance in the game, orchestrating possession in very good areas and getting another goal to his name in the second half as a half-clearance dropped to him 15 yards out, and he curled into the top corner to kill the game.

His overall display showed just how much he can offer to the club despite moving down the pecking order, and his performance lauded by former Leeds man Danny Mills on Instagram:

Klich was immense last night, and it will have been such a huge boost to him to have a performance like that.

He was great value for his goals and it shows that he can be the number 10 backup that we need, playing with a lot of quality behind the Barnsley midfield.

We needed some wiser heads in key areas after the away side got a goal back, and Klich’s influence in the second half helped restore that control.

It was great to see him in a fine mood in front of goal once again.
