Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to Sunday’s incredible comeback win against Aston Villa, and they’re full of praise for Leif Davis.
Leeds fans were stunned when Barry Douglas was taken out of the starting XI at Villa on Sunday, but Davis was superb on his full debut.
Marcelo Bielsa has shown time and time again that he is happy to place his trust in youth players, and 18 year-old Davis formed an incredible young left flank, playing just behind Manchester City loanee Jack Harrison.
Who are the best away fans in the Championship? Playmaker FC’s Thogden gives his top 10 in the video below…
The youngster struggled on a couple of occasions early on, but once he found his feet there was no looking back, and Douglas may just have some competition for that starting spot.
The teenager won four aerial duels and one tackle while also making one clearance, and his general play and overall composure was incredible under the circumstances.
The Whites have now won six in a row since the wake-up call at West Brom, and the Twitter reactions down below suspect Bielsa has just uncovered yet another absolute gem…
18-year-old Leif Davis made NINE ball recoveries on his senior Leeds debut, more than any other player on the pitch.

£50m worth of Bolaise and Kodija vs young kid ?

Given such short notice, I thought he did excellently against experienced players!

Feared for the lad, he did brilliantly
Well done young man

It’s the advantage gained from having a philosophy of playing the same way throughout the club

Looked great so many youngsters coming through. Carlos Corberan and co ????. Still got Struijk, Gotts, Stevens and Temenuzhkov – all good enough IMO.

I had to check the match programme twice when he appeared. Great debut. Then Clarke’s goal – a proud day indeed.
