With Luke Ayling currently sidelined through injury, Leeds United’s utility man Stuart Dallas has stepped up in the right-back position and been in excellent form at the beginning of the season.
The Whites have made an unbeaten start to the campaign with seven points from their first three league games, while also progressing to the second round of the Carabao Cup.
Dallas has played every minute of the league so far and appears to be playing some of his most consistent football in a Leeds shirt.
The 28-year-old is a versatile ace that has played several positions at Elland Road, including both full-back positions and also on both wings as an attacker.
But he’s settled in at right-back so far for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and looks indispensable.
He offers such a tremendous work-rate with his tireless runs forward to join in with attacks, while defensively his game has come on too in recent years and he’s tough to beat.
Dallas, who cost Leeds £1.3million (Sky Sports) in 2015, has been converted from an attacker to a full-back and is doing a brilliant job in the Championship.
The Northern Ireland international stepped in whenever needed last campaign to great effect and deserves his current run in the team.
He epitomises the kind of player Bielsa wants in his team with plenty of endeavour and it would be a harsh decision to axe him from the starting XI anytime soon.
