Chris Wood delivered a great performance against Ipswich on Saturday – and the club’s fans showed their support for him on Twitter.
Leeds recorded a 1-0 victory in the Championship fixture and Wood scored the decisive goal in the first-half.
His header put the Whites in front from a Charlie Taylor cross and helped Garry Monk’s side continue their impressive form.
The 24-year-old has now netted seven times this season in just 11 appearances, with four goals coming in his his last four competitive matches.
The club’s supporters were full of praise for the striker on Twitter and one fan even claimed that he is most feared striker in the world right now.
Chris Wood, goal scoring hero! #lufc

Say what you want about Chris Wood, but a striker is judged on goals, and he's scoring plenty just now #lufc

Leeds have now won their last four competitive matches, including a EFL Cup success against Blackburn, and have bounced back from a disappointing start to the season.
Garry Monk has elected to use Wood in attack ahead of Marcus Antonsson this campaign, with his decision being fully justified.
Wood moved to Elland Road in 2015 from Leicester and appears to have settled after spending the earlier stages of his career at several club’s.
The forward has played at club’s such as West Brom, Birmingham, Millwall and Brighton as he developed his game as a youngster.
He will now want to continue his recent goal scoring form and could make it five goals in five when Leeds face Bristol City on Tuesday.
In other Leeds team news, the club’s supporters reacted on Twitter to Kalvin Phillips starting against Ipswich.
