Leeds fans react on Twitter to Jordan Stevens’s U23 display

A number of Leeds United supporters have taken to Twitter to laud Jordan Stevens after the midfielder scored to help the Whites’ under-23s to a 2-0 victory over Barnsley on Monday.

McCarron was arguably one of the most impressive performers on show. But it was another who doubled Leeds’s lead in the second-half as Stevens produced a smart piece of play.

Stevens is one of a number of players who appear to be on the cusp of the first-team picture at Elland Road. He made his senior debut last season, and has been included in Marcelo Bielsa’s squad on a number of occasions.

Plenty of Leeds fans took to social media after the win to praise the 19-year-old. They felt that he was one of the standout performers, with the intelligence that he showed for the goal also attracting plaudits.

Here is what some of the supporters made of Stevens’s display…
