Leeds United goalkeeper Kiko Casilla was named in the official EFL Team of the Week (via @EFL).
Are Leeds destined for another season in the Championship?
The Spaniard was part of a Whites team which managed to keep a clean sheet against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday, with the side coming away with a 0-0 draw (via BBC Sport).
Casilla produced a composed display in the match, and he also made several saves including an absolutely outstanding one with his finger tips to deny Steven Fletcher in the first half (via @SkyFootball).
It has been a solid start to the season for the former Real Madrid man, who has been an ever-present for Leeds and has started all 14 of their Championship games. In that time he has managed to keep seven clean sheets and has conceded just eight goals (via Transfermarkt).
That form has been crucial for the Whites and is a major reason why they currently sit in third place in the Championship table, just two points adrift of leaders West Brom (via BBC Sport).
Leeds fans have been reacting to the news that Casilla was named as this week’s top goalkeeper in the EFL, with several agreeing that it was the right call to include the Spanish shot-stopper. Here is what some had to say…
Go on Kiko

If it wasn’t for Casilla and Westwood that game I’d go as far as saying there were 4/5 goals in that fixture, but Kiko deffo made more saves so aye he deserves it here 👏 bit annoyed Fox doesn’t get in for havin Costa in his pocket for 60 mins but meh who cares

Remember fellow LUFC fans. The less Ben White is in TOTW the less Brighton realise and decide to call him back 😉 Also very well deserved to Kiko.
