Leeds United have shone so far this season under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, establishing themselves as the early pacesetters in the hunt for promotion from the Championship.
An unbeaten start to the campaign has seen the Peacocks widely tipped as the favourites to seal a long-awaited return to the Premier League and the displays have been a cause for optimism for the fans who have endured turbulent times since relegation from the top-flight in 2004.
Excitement is also present behind the scenes concerning one of the club’s most highly-rated youngsters, with Jack Clarke earning praise for another excellent performance for the U23 side and being tipped to make a first-team breakthrough in the near future.
Just 17, the winger is widely regarded to be one of the best prospects behind the scenes at Elland Road and showed his talents with a shining performance for the U23 side this week – although they were held to a draw with Rangers after conceding a last-minute equaliser.
Fans took to social media to praise Clarke and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Ryan Edmondson and Jack Clarke were very impressive for the #lufc U23s tonight. Generally a good all round team performance. Shame they conceded so late into injury time.

Jack Clarke is unreal to watch. Just beats players for fun. The left back Leif Davis look a great player as well #LUFC

Clarke looking bright again so far, only so long he can be playing u23 football surely. Loan to a league 1/2 would do him the world of good. #LUFC
