Leeds fans react as Joe Allen shines against West Brom on Monday night

Stoke City gave Leeds United fans a huge sigh of relief on Monday night as The Potters produced a stunning backs-to-the-walls display to beat table toppers West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns – and Leeds fans have discussed Stoke star Joe Allen.

Leeds suffered a 1-0 defeat to QPR on Saturday afternoon at Loftus Road in a match they were expected to win, giving West Brom the chance to go four points clear at the top of the Championship. However, the Baggies failed to do so.

Tyrese Campbell scored the only goal of the game, after latching on to Tom Ince’s pass before bundling the ball into the back of the net past Baggies goalkeeper Sam Johnstone – who has kept just five clean sheets in 28 appearances this term.

However, it was the performances of Stoke City’s defenders and midfield engine room that one Michael O’Neill the match. Central defenders Danny Batth and Liam Lindsay – once linked with Leeds – were excellent throughout the 90 minutes.

But captain Joe Allen stood out more than most, as he worked tirelessly to keep the likes of Matheus Pereira, Jake Livermore and Romaine Sawyers quiet throughout. The 29-year-old is a £12million target for West Ham, as per The Express.

However, after Stoke did Leeds a favour by beating Slaven Bilic’s out-of-form side, Leeds fans applauded midfielder Joe Allen and many are of the opinion that he would be a top signing for Marcelo Bielsa’s team.
