Leeds fans lay into Helder Costa despite beating Birmingham

Leeds may have come away from their clash against Birmingham with all three points but there were still some concerning elements to their play.

Despite registering 58% of the possession, they only won 1-0 courtesy of Kalvin Phillips.

As the club celebrated its centenary, it was rather appropriate that a player who’s risen through the ranks from the academy to the first team was the man to score. That didn’t stop negativity creeping into the fanbase, however.

That was particularly the case with winger Helder Costa who again was rather unconvincing. Since coming into the starting XI four games ago he’s yet to be involved in a goal.

Concerns appear to be growing over the 25-year-old as one supporter said he looked lost.

A further individual took to Twitter to compare him to Jimmy Kebe, a player who scored just once in nine games when on loan at Elland Road in 2014.

Another fan said he’d done absolutely nothing all season.

Costa has scored a solitary goal and assisted three strikes in all competitions this term but only one of those contributions have come in the league.

Here’s the best of the reaction.

Should Hernandez be given a new deal?
