Leeds ran riot against the Potters at Elland Road and cruised to a 3-1 win which instantly had many talking of Marcelo Bielsa's side as promotion contenders.
Topping it all off then was Ezgjan Alioski.
An unchanged side saw two goals for Roofe, Klich bag his second in as many games and a first of the season for Alioski, while Patrick Bamford and Jamie Shackleton made their debuts from the bench.More news: Paul Pogba Named Manchester United Captain - Starting XI V Leicester Confirmed
"They played very well but if you get your game right and work hard, you should be able to deal with these things".
Derby were presented with a good chance in the third minute when a mishit effort from Martyn Waghorn found Mason Mount in the area but the Chelsea loanee could only fire his shot wide.
Lawrence dusted himself down to take the free-kick and the winger produced an absolute piledriver that zoomed past Bailey Peacock-Farrell and into the roof of the net. Pablo Hernandez did brilliantly to reach the ball and pull it back before it went over the by-line and Alioski arrived to power a header into an unguarded net. Carson was called into action to deny Roofe at point-blank range with Tomori making a last-ditch block to deny Ayling on the rebound.More news: Jordan Moves To The Palace
Leeds' lead was short-lived though, Derby equalising seven minutes later when the impressive Tom Lawrence fired in a 12th minute free-kick after he was fouled on the edge of the Leeds United area. First, Roofe slammed the ball high past Carson to register his second.
The Whites face a test this Saturday away at Derby and Lampard can not help but admit to having been impressed with what he saw at Elland Road, with bags of energy on display from the hosts.
It was little surprise that Bielsa, retained the starting lineup that disposed of Stoke so impressively on the opening weekend of the Championship season. Subs not used: Roos, Forsyth, Pearce, Marriott.More news: Hurricane Hector to pass just south of Hawaii
