Leeds United’s U18 side thrill supporters on Twitter

Life at Leeds United is currently a thoroughly enjoyable one. Indeed, with Marcelo Bielsa at the helm, the Whites are looking unbeatable at the top of the Championship and dreams of a long-awaited Premier League return are nothing less than rife at Elland Road.

The enigmatic Argentine’s influence in West Yorkshire is already obvious. His side press high, play quickly and finish ruthlessly, giving fans a glimpse of the kind of football to have made Bielsa one of the most revered coaches in the world over the past decade or so.

However, it’s not just the first-team who are seemingly enjoying his impact. That’s because the U18 side smashed Premier League Watford’s same age group 5-1 on Saturday, sending fans online into a frenzy.

With Leeds enjoying a huge amount of success from their academy over the past few years, the sight of yet more homegrown talents impressing as an undercurrent to the first team’s exploits, things are going very well indeed.

So, having said all that, here’s a look at how fans on Twitter reacted.
