Leeds United: Fans laud Illan Meslier after debut performance in loss to Arsenal

Leeds United fans have been lauding Illan Meslier after the 19 year-old ‘keeper’s performance in his debut for the club.

The Frenchman was making his first appearance for the club since he joined the club on-loan from Ligue 2 side Lorient.

He was playing so well one fan reckoned the player was the ‘Toni Kroos of goalkeepers’.

Meslier’s passing was of the highest quality as he ended the night with a distribution rate of 82.1% and completed 11 of his 17 long passes he attempted (via LUFC Data).

With the Gunners coming on strong in the second half, the Lorient-loanee was made to work in the Leeds goal as he made three saves to ensure the Whites conceded just the one goal (via WhoScored).

Fans were over the moon with the debut of the youngster as they took to Twitter to lavish him with praise for his performance against the Premier League side.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
