Leeds United recorded a 3-3 draw against Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon in the Championship – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter hailed the performance of attacker Helder Costa.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side were involved in a dramatic fixture at Elland Road to earn just a point and they stay second in the Championship table behind leaders West Brom.
The Whites have seen a seven-game winning streak in the league come to an end, as they were stunned by a dramatic comeback from Cardiff.
Costa opened the scoring against Cardiff in the sixth minute, as he latched onto a stunning through ball from teammate Pablo Hernandez and fired in a low left-footed effort.
Striker Patrick Bamford then added a second just two minutes later, as he chested down the ball in the penalty area and rifled in a quick finish.
Bamford netted his second of the match early in the second-half with a composed finish and the game looked out of sight at 3-0.
Visitors Cardiff did set up a tense finale with goals from Lee Tomlin and Sean Morrison to reduce the deficit, but it seemed over as a contest when the latter was sent off in the 86th minute.
With 10 men Cardiff managed to net an equaliser through Robert Glatzel, which would have pleased West Brom supporters.
A selection of Leeds supporters on social media picked out Costa for his eye-catching display and are delighted to see him performing well.
After a slow start to the campaign, the 25-year-old has really developed into a key player for Bielsa’s team and gives such energy in the final third.
The rapid winger is now starting to find end product in his game and he should have had a penalty for his side too when he was fouled in the box.
Here are some Leeds fans on Costa:

@heldercosta_ on another level today. Him and Pablo linking up like a top European squad. Few cards in this second half as their defenders can’t handle costa!

Helder Costa is really justifying his price-tag now.
He adds so much to us in a tactical sense. In transition, as an outlet, in behind — we really didn’t have someone like him last year. And that’s before we get into his quality of touch, pass & dribble. What a player! #LUFC
