'The jewel in our crown' - Leeds fans are very excited about Jack Clarke

Jack Clarke scored his first professional goal yesterday to add to his burgeoning reputation.

The 18-year-old came on for Jack Harrison at half-time as Leeds trailed Aston Villa 2-0 at Villa Park.

And Clarke inspired a magnificent comeback to ensure Leeds sit top at Christmas.

The talented teenager, who has come through the ranks at Elland Road, scored Leeds’ first goal with a fine finish.

Clarke cut inside from the left flank, moved into the box and picked his spot with a well-taken finish.

He then immediately beckoned for a team-mate to grab the ball and ran back to restart the game.

Leeds then turned the game around completely with goals from Pontus Jansson and Kemar Roofe ensuring a memorable victory.

Having impressed in a few substitute cameos, Clarke could now try to earn a starting spot.

The York-born winger looks set to be next in a long line of academy graduates starring in a first-team role.

Leeds fans are understandably getting very excited by their homegrown starlet.

Below are some opinions from Leeds fans after Clarke spearheaded their win over Aston Villa.
