Samuel Saiz set Leeds United on their way to a 2-0 win over Birmingham City on Tuesday night that lifted them to the Championship summit – and fans took to Twitter to rave about his performance.
The Spaniard, 26, has made a huge impression in his first month at Elland Road after joining for £3million from Spanish second-tier club Huesca.
He continued his fine form with the first goal in Leeds’ triumph against Harry Redknapp’s Birmingham, with Stuart Dallas sealing the win late in the second period.
Saiz is United’s leading scorer with six goals this season, which included a memorable hat-trick on his debut for the club.
Leeds fans were blown away by Saiz’s latest display, with some claiming he is on a different level to all other players in the Championship.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Passing like Saiz, heading like Pontus, scoring like Dallas – I guess that’s why we’ve beaten the Blues

Leeds’ win against struggling Birmingham lifts them above previous leaders Cardiff City, who were beaten 3-0 at Preston North End on Tuesday night.
Thomas Christiansen’s side remain unbeaten in all competitions this season, with their seven league matches accumulating 17 points.
