Robert Snodgrass delivered an eye catching display against Manchester United on Saturday evening – and supporters took to Twitter to applaud his performance.
Snodgrass, 28, became a Leeds favourite during his four-year spell at Elland Road and has continued to thrive at the highest level.
He lined up against Manchester United on Saturday and went close in the first-half from a set-piece, which drifted just past David De Gea’s goal.
The winger was impacting the game positively but he picked up an injury after colliding with the woodwork in the first-half.
The Scottish international was forced off early in the second-half as he never fully recovered from the injury despite initially continuing.
An injury-time Marcus Rashford goal condemned Hull to a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United to end their unbeaten start in the Premier League.
Supporters on Twitter were full of praise for Snodgrass for his performance despite it ending prematurely.

This game begs the question: if Pogba is worth 105m, how much is Snodgrass worth??

The midfielder enjoyed a prolific time at Leeds which came to an end in 2012, scoring 41 goals and supplying 40 assists in 187 appearances for the club.
Snodgrass has also impressed on the international stage with Scotland, making 17 appearances since his debut in 2011 and scoring three goals.
He will hope to be named in Gordon Strachan’s latest Scotland squad but could miss out depending on the extent of his injury.
Scottish champions Celtic were interested in Snodgrass earlier this summer however he has remained with Hull following their promotion to the Premier League.
The former Leeds man has become a major part of the Hull side and can be expected to play a crucial role in the survival bid.
