Stuart Dallas appeared to take a number of the plaudits from plenty of the Leeds United faithful on social media after he helped the club to a crucial win on Saturday afternoon.
Having witnessed their side pick up the three points against Bristol City at Elland Road, fans were left waxing lyrical over the Northern Ireland international’s contribution at the back, with many pointing out that they felt the position was were he should continue to remain.
Indeed, the data collected by WhoScored helped to provide evidence to the Whites’ faithful point about having Marcelo Bielsa keep the 28-year-old playing as a left-back, as he managed to provide his team-mates with a total of two tackles, two interceptions and one clearance.
The versatile Dallas also tried to make things happen at the other end of the field as well, as he managed to have three shots (although all were off-target) and be on hand to play one key pass.
Supporters clearly had an untold amount of praise for him on Twitter, with one going as far to say he was “arguably our best player” whilst another Leeds fan suggested the whole defence looked more solid with the international full-back playing on the left-hand side of the backline.
Here are just some of their reactions to his most recent performance…
Stuart Dallas is arguably our best player, so reliable #lufc

The defence looks so much more solid with Dallas on the left! 13th clean sheet of the season, need to keep going. #LUFC

I thought Dallas had a terrific game at LB. I feel much safer with him playing, than with Alioski.
Good to see Pablo Hernandez have the freedom to play out on the right wing when he feels like it.
Using our players in their best positions, could get us over the line. #LUFC
