Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to their win over Preston, and they can’t believe how well Liam Cooper is playing this season.
While there was probably some unfair scapegoating going on, there is no question that Cooper was not good last season and he was regularly criticised by his own fans on Twitter.
Both he and Pontus Jansson went completely off the boil after Christmas, and the worst part was that the pair of them seemed to hide when the going got tough.
They look like completely different animals this season though, and Cooper showed once again on Tuesday exactly why he is captain.
The 27-year-old scored the first goal when he got on the end of a ball from Barry Douglas, and he and Jansson were a brick wall in defence.
Cooper won five aerial duels and five tackles and also made three interceptions with two clearances.
His commanding presence is making all the difference at the back for Bielsa’s side, and fans are heaping praise on his performance.

The Cooper doubters have gone back under their rock for the time being…
