Pontus Jansson helped Leeds beat Burton Albion 2-0 at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon- and fans on Twitter praised his performance.
Centre-back Jansson played the full 90 minutes, as the Yorkshire club kept their second consecutive clean sheet.
Striker Chris Wood converted from the penalty spot late into the second-half, when substitute Souleymane Doukara drew a foul from Burton defender Ben Turner.
Doukara then made sure of all the three points, when he scored into stoppage time, as Leeds go ninth, with 15 points, one point off a play-off place.
Nigel Clough’s men had an astonishing 19 shots on goal, but were only able to get two shots on target throughout the game, as they failed to win on the road for the eighth time this season.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Another clean sheet? Bartley and Jansson are ridiculous. Please just pay the money for them. Any price. Pay it.

Pontus Jansson is the best defender I've ever seen at Leeds United.

Sweden International Jansson has made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Yorkshire club, helping them secure four clean sheets.
The on-loan Torino centre-back has built a strong partnership, with teammate Kyle Bartley, who is on-loan from Swansea, at the heart of the club’s defence.
The Whites will now travel to Carrow Road to take on recently-relegated Norwich on November 5.
