'Oozes quality': Leeds fans laud Lewis Bate for assist against Arsenal under-23s
Leeds United fans once again got a glimpse of the future last night and were left suitably impressed with the performance of Lewis Bate at Elland Road.
The Leeds 23s played host to Arsenal at the first-team’s ground last night and it was quite the game. Leeds twice led, but Arsenal fought back to win 4-2 in an entertaining spectacle in West Yorkshire.
For Leeds, there were a number of players on show who Whites fans hold a vested interest in. The likes of Summerville and Greenwood both played well again, but it was the performance of Lewis Bate that caught the eye.
The ex-Chelsea youngster is making big strides it seems in Leeds. And he played an important part last night in the opening goal scored by Max Dean.
Some Leeds fans, then, feel Bate isn’t too far away from a call to the full Leeds squad. Twitter was awash with comments from supporters suggesting as much. Marcelo Bielsa, no doubt, is watching on with interest.
Here’s a look at what some Leeds fans had to say about Lewis Bate last night.
Lewis bate is the sort of player the 1st team are missing at the minute a creative player who can play just off the front men he can’t be far away

Super impressive by Bate. That running line to find and hold the space. Then the confidence and patience to wait and find the right ball to play, then a well timed and weighted ball. pic.twitter.com/FS91BAEvlI
