Leeds United secured a vital 3-1 victory away to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday in the Championship – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter were left praising defender Ben White for yet another eye-catching display.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side responded to the disappointment of a 1-1 draw with Luton in the last game, as they moved three points closer to automatic promotion with a win.
Patrick Bamford opened the scoring early for the Yorkshire club in the league fixture, before Kalvin Phillips doubled the advantage in the first-half with a long-range free-kick.
Adam Armstrong did cut the deficit for the hosts with a goal early in the second-half, but Mateuz Klich’s fifth goal of the season secured a win.
Leeds remain top of the table with five games left to play and crucially have a six-point cushion over third-placed Brentford to try protect.
A selection of Leeds supporters on social media picked out White for his latest performance, as he once against stood out for his contribution at the back.
The 22-year-old has been a sensation this campaign since he joined on loan from Brighton and is so composed with the ball at his feet, something he demonstrated once again against Blackburn.
He is a ball-playing centre-back that hit some excellent passes and the way he senses danger at the back is huge for the backline.
Here are some Leeds fans discussing White’s latest display:
There is nothing Ben White can’t do. That cross was better than 90% of what our wingers and full backs provide, shame nobody was there.
