Leeds fans single one player out as ‘the difference’ after Watford downing

Leeds fans single one player out as ‘the difference’ after Watford downing

 

The Leeds United faithful have taken to social media in their droves this afternoon, to single one particular member of the club’s squad out for special praise.

Llorente on target

Marcelo Bielsa’s men returned to action a short time ago.

The under-manned Whites welcomed Watford to Elland Road, eyeing a much-needed first 3-point haul of the Premier League campaign.

And, when all was said and done in West Yorkshire, kick-start the club’s season is precisely what Leeds managed.

A solitary goal ultimately proved enough to guide the hosts to a 1-0 victory over Watford, easing them out of the English top-flight’s relegation zone in the process.

Diego Llorente acted as the hero on the day, reacting fastest to slot home after a corner from the right resulted in ensuing chaos in the visitors’ area.

‘Difference maker’

In turn, on the back of their side’s first league win of the campaign, it has since come as little surprise to see the Leeds United faithful in jubilant mood across social media.

The Peacocks’ supporters have lauded the efforts of a whole host of their side’s stars following the full-time whistle at Elland Road, amid the widespread agreement that the first-half display in particular proved the club’s finest of the 2021/22 term thus far.

As outlined above, though, one member of Bielsa’s squad has been more widely singled out for praise than any other.

The player in question? Diego Llorente.

Spanish stopper Llorente marked his return from injury this afternoon, looking a class above the majority of those on the pitch, and even bagging the game’s winner.

And the former Real Sociedad man, as a result, has since been labelled as the ‘difference maker’ by many, with just some of the Twitter highlights showcased below:
