Eddie Nketiah scored on his Leeds United debut as they swept past League Two Salford City to reach the Carabao Cup second round.

The hosts - watched on by co-owners Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Gary Neville - looked lively early on but fell behind when on-loan Arsenal striker Nketiah tapped home Helder Costa's low cross.

Gaetano Berardi doubled Leeds' advantage, flicking in Costa's near-post corner, with Mateusz Klich bending in a third from the edge of the box.

Salford, making their debut in the competition after four promotions in five seasons, tested Kiko Casilla through Danny Whitehead and Richie Towell but largely faded in the second half.
