COMMENT By Harry Sykes

Leeds beat Port Vale 4-1 in the Carabao Cup v Port Vale on Wednesday evening and one player provided all the headlines for the Whites.

Four players were making their competitive debuts for Leeds tonight – Caleb Ekuban, Samu Saiz, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Mateusz Klich – and it was Saiz who turned on the style, scoring a quite brilliant hat-trick.

His first came from a misdirected cross from Stuart Dallas, which hit the post and dropped to Saiz who hammered it home off the post.

The second was better – Saiz rounded the keeper and slotted home – and the third was the best of the bunch, an emphatic finish from just inside the penalty area.

Leeds fans were understandably excited by Saiz’ performance and took to Twitter to hail their new hero after the match.

Here is a selection of their reactions on Twitter:

One dark cloud was hovering over Saiz after the match though, with the TV commentary team making mention of a possible spitting incident at half-time involving the diminutive midfielder.

Nothing has been confirmed as yet and we hope that it doesn’t end up overshadowing what was an incredibly exciting debut performance.
