Junior Firpo reacts on Twitter to Leeds win
Junior Firpo has taken to Twitter to offer an initial reaction after Leeds United secured their third Premier League win of the season up against Crystal Palace on Tuesday.
The Whites fans were put through it once again at Elland Road. As the game approached stoppage-time, it remained goalless.
Both sides had had their chances. Rodrigo passed up an amazing opportunity at the start of the second-half.
Christian Benteke meanwhile, somehow headed past the post from close range when it appeared that he had a simple task. Illan Meslier also had to claw a ball back from the goalline at one stage.
But ultimately, it was Leeds who secured the three points. Liam Cooper’s stoppage-time header was handled by Marc Guehi.
After consulting the pitch side monitor, Kevin Friend gave the penalty. And Raphinha stepped up to score the only goal to send the ground into a frenzy.
It was a huge win for Leeds with some daunting fixtures ahead for the Whites. And it obviously moves them further away from the bottom three.
It was an important night for Junior. He came on at the break after Pascal Struijk appeared to pick up a knock.
The half did not start well for the summer signing. He was booked for a clumsy looking challenge on the edge of the box.

And given his previous problems, fans may have feared the worst. But Junior grew into the game, offering a real threat down the left flank.
He appeared to link up well with Daniel James. And he went some way to silencing some of his doubters.
And his tweet following the full-time whistle encapsulated how many of the Leeds fans would have felt…
It felt sooooooooo good!! 💛💙 pic.twitter.com/zM5ryCIeKH
