Loads of Leeds fans have been running the rule over their victory against Derby County, and they’re running out of superlatives for teenage winger Jack Clarke.
The Elland Road faithful have been crying out for Clarke to start more games, and they got their wish on Friday night as the 18 year-old started on the right wing against Derby.
Clarke has been playing limited minutes under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa as the boss works to improve the youngster’s athleticism and physicality, but he was unleashed in full flow against the Rams.
Who are the best away fans in the Championship? Pl>ymaker FC’s Thogden gives his top 10 in the video below…
Not only did he set up the first goal, racing past Craig Bryson and firing a delicious low cross for Kemar Roofe to bury, but he was an absolute nightmare for the Derby defence throughout the match.
Clarke completed three key passes and tortured Rams’ left back Max Lowe all evening with his directness and skill, and fans will rightly feel like they really do have a superstar on their hands now.

I’ve never seen a 18 year old mug off a defender more. Lowe will have nightmares for weeks

Let’s hope we can hang onto Clarke then, we need to go up to have a realistic chance of keeping him I believe
