Many Leeds United fans were impressed with the performance of Jamie Shackleton on Twitter following their 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday night.
No update on Cooper or Shackleton from Bielsa, too early.
Head coach disappointed Shackleton couldn't continue, so impressed was he with the youngster's first half performance.#lufc

The 19-year-old midfielder was forced to withdraw from the match at the halfway point with what appeared to be an injury concern, which disappointed many of those watching the game.
Many of the supporters had felt the youngster had been controlling large parts of the first half with his display and were impressed with the quality he was showing in the middle of the field at Elland Road – he managed to make 16 passes, completing 87.5% of those he attempted (WhoScored).
Indeed, having come into the side for the injured Adam Forshaw, he appears to have been going from strength to strength after making his breakthrough into Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team last season.
Although not much is known about Shackleton’s setback, many will be hoping that he is not out for a significant amount of time, as plenty of the Leeds faithful appeared to be excited with what he could bring to the team.
Here are just some of their reactions…
He better be ok. He was ridiculously good tonight, was Shacks.

Brilliant first half. Game changed second half without him.
