Leeds fans react on Twitter to Kiko Casilla's display at Barnsley

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that Kiko Casilla may have produced his finest performance for the Whites yet after the goalkeeper’s display in the 2-0 win away at Barnsley.

Casilla produced some stunning saves to deny the Tykes. He was there to clear up when Barnsley managed to get round Leeds’s defence and through on goal, but he also made an outstanding save in the second-half to deny the home side a stunning goal from distance.

The 32-year-old has come in for a lot of criticism during his time at Elland Road. But a lot of his doubters have been silenced by his form at the start of this season.

And plenty of supporters suggested that they would put his Barnsley performance down as his best since joining Leeds in January. They feel that he is now proving his class, and vindicating the club’s decision to sign him earlier this year.

Here is how some of the supporters reacted to Casilla’s performance…
