'Absolute class', 'Unbelievable' – Leeds fans in awe of one player despite 1-0 loss v Villa
One player was head and shoulders above the pack for Leeds last night and fans took to Twitter to salute their young hero.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell was the shining light for a Leeds side in disarray and although he couldn’t prevent yet another defeat for Paul Heckingbottom’s side, he did ensure the score was respectable.
In the end, Aston Villa ran out 1-0 winners but it could have been a lot worse if it wasn’t for the 21-year-old keeper.
He made a string of fine saves and looked commanding in his box and was given the man-of-the-match award after the game.
Introduced for the Wolves game back in March, Peacock-Farrell has kept his place in the first team ever since and must be in with a shot at the number one spot next season.
One fan said that he was a huge talent while another said he was good but had a shocking team in front of him.

Another urged him to stay and apologised for the owners and management of the team.
Here are the best reactions to his man-of-the-match performance at Villa Park last night:
Must of been refreshing to see how well Bailey Farrell Peacock,P O’Connor and T. Pearce all played,didn’t look out of place,shame we weren’t very effective in their half during the match.

Have to say, the best players by far tonight were Peacock-Farrell and Pearce. Says a lot when they are two of the youngest players and have only just stepped up to first team football. #LUFC

Good keeper. Shocking team in front of him. Pls stay Peacock-Farrell. Not your fault we have new owners, management, and still can’t get it right. Frustrating for you. Pls stick with us.
