Leeds fans react on Twitter to Robbie Gotts's under-23 display

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to laud Robbie Gotts after the youngster’s performance in under-23s’ sensational 6-0 win over Watford on Monday.

The Whites thrashed the Hornets at Elland Road, with three goals coming in each half. Pascal Struijk broke the deadlock before Eddie Nketiah added to his first-team goal at the weekend with a penalty.

It was Nketiah who bagged Leeds’s third. But it was Gotts who set the goal up with a stunning cross. The 19-year-old curled a delicious ball in towards the back post and the striker volleyed home just before the break.

Tyler Roberts also bagged a penalty after the break. And then it was Gotts’s turn to get on the scoresheet.

Leeds made a nice move down the right flank, and that allowed Luke Ayling to lay the ball into Gotts, who showed his composure to find the bottom corner. It was Ayling who added a sixth.

Unsurprisingly, there were a number of performances that caught the eye. But plenty of supporters felt that Gotts was the star of the show.

The midfielder was excellent on the ball, and timed a number of challenges absolutely perfectly. It was a display that showed exactly why Marcelo Bielsa has included the youngster on the first-team bench on so many occasions during his tenure.

And based on his performance against Watford, it appears to be a matter of time before he gets to make that senior debut for the Whites. One fan even suggested that they were reminded of Lee Bowyer.

Here is what some of the supporters were saying about Gotts’s display…
