'Derby will be sick of the sight' - Leeds fans rave about one player for display in Tuesday loss
By Danny Wright
Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to rave about midfielder Ronaldo Vieira for yet another good performance in the midfield in Tuesday night’s 2-1 loss to Derby at Elland Road.
The Whites failed to return to winning ways after an early strike from Pierre-Michel Lasogga was cancelled out by a second-half brace by Sam Winnall.
Although it was yet another dire result, Vieira, 19, had all the fans talking about him after the game as he stood form in the heart of Thomas Christiansen’s formation for most of the 90 minutes.
Vieira has not long come back from a knee tendonitis issue that has troubled him last season, over the summer and during the early months of this campaign.
Many thought that Christiansen simply wasn’t a fan of the teenager having barely used him until recently, however it was recently revealed that it was injury that was keeping him sidelined and not the manager’s tactics.

Leeds haven’t looked back though since Vieira has returned and he was once again on form against Derby on Tuesday, something which fans were well aware of.
One Whites supporter even claimed that the Rams players will be “sick of the sight” of Vieira after he hurried and worried them all night.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
