Leeds United fans were praising Helder Costa after the attacker’s performance in the side’s 2-0 win over Hull City last night.
The Portuguese man was in stunning form for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as he had the joint-most shots (3), played the joint-most key passes (2) and completed the second-most dribbles (4) yesterday (via WhoScored).
Is Marcelo Bielsa the best coach in the Championship
Bielsa spoke about the 25-year-old’s performance as he claimed the attacker helped keep Hull ‘unbalanced in the right’ (via Leeds Live).
Costa has enjoyed a fairly successful season on loan from Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, scoring and assisting six goals in 22 appearances for the Whites this year (via Transfermarkt).
The move to Elland Road is initially a season-long loan deal, though it will become permanent from next summer as Costa joins on a four-year deal (via BBC).
Fans were full of praise for the attacker as they took to Twitter to lavish him with praise.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
