Leeds United: Stuart Dallas has been impressive this season

Leeds United have had a tough second season in the Premier League after their 16-year absence that was brought to an end when Marcelo Bielsa got them promoted at the end of their 2019/20 Championship campaign.

With 27 league games played, the Yorkshire club have only managed to win five of them, drawing eight and losing 14 as well as scoring 27 goals but conceding a whopping 61, which is more than any other club in the division.

While their results and team performances may not have been up to scratch this time around, there has been one individual player that can be regarded as a standout figure for the Whites – Stuart Dallas.

He is currently the club-record signing...

Having racked up more minutes in the league than any other outfield player at the club this season, this highlights just how prominent and important he has been for the team, as was the case in their previous campaign.

Also, taking into account how he’s played in numerous positions across the defence and midfield, his versatility has been nothing short of vital for the Whites considering the injuries to the likes of Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips.

Unsurprisingly due to the number of minutes he’s played, Dallas has had more touches of the ball (1583) than any of his teammates, highlighting how involved he is during each match as well as making more tackles (30), blocks (47) interceptions (60) than any other Leeds player.

Labelled as a “selfless” player that acts as the “linchpin” for his side by Jermaine Beckford, the Northern Irishman has once again proved his worth to the club, who would certainly be in a worse position than they are had the 30-year-old not been available in the same way that Phillips and Patrick Bamford haven’t been for much of the season.

Even though winger Raphinha has been important for the team in terms of his goals and general attacking output, Dallas’ all-round play has arguably been more significant in what has been a disheartening campaign for the Yorkshire club so far.

Moving forward, with Jesse Marsch now in charge, everyone at Elland Road will undoubtedly be hoping that their versatile hero, who is currently picking up a weekly wage of £53k-per-week according to Salary Sport, can stay fit and keep delivering the industrious sort of performances that he has been so far to help keep his side in the Premier League.
