Leeds fans praise Diego Llorente for his performance in Aston Villa defeat

Leeds United suffered defeat on Saturday evening in the Premier League – but some of the club’s fans on Twitter did at least find one positive in the display from their defender Diego Llorente.

The Whites went into the weekend off the back of a comprehensive win against Southampton.

Unfortunately, they were beaten 1-0 at Elland Road at home to Aston Villa in today’s league fixture.

Anwar El Ghazi’s goal in the fifth minute was enough to earn the visitors all three points, as he managed to take a first touch in the box and convert a low finish.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team were nowhere near their fluent best against Villa, creating very little in front of goal.

Despite showing more inconsistency as a team this season, they are still 10th in the league standings and it’s been a great return to top-flight football this year.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media felt that Spain international Llorente was a positive from the result.

The 27-year-old centre-back got another 90 minutes under his belt in the Whites backline, where he looked comfortable alongside captain Liam Cooper for the most part by showing strength and composure in possession.

It was just his fifth appearance of the season since he joined in the summer, with his time plagued by a string of injuries so far.

Here are some Leeds fans discussing Llorente:
