Who should start in goal for Leeds on Saturday?
He could do nothing about the Gunners’ winner as Reiss Nelson scuffed in a shot from six yards with Meslier on the floor. (2:40)
However, despite this, he impressed many Leeds fans.

Fantastic debut Illan, you looked like you have been playing in the first team all season. ALAW!

What a game he had, the delivery of the ball to players was outstanding rather than just booting the ball up pitch for a 50/50 chance
Incredible how he pin pointed players out.. Top draw Meslier ?
Going to be a top keeper.. for Leeds ?

Some Whites supporters want Meslier to replace Kiko Casilla.
Meslier is the goalkeeper we need. Kiko thanks for everything. From Rosario’s birthplace of Marcelo Bielsa. To death with leeds.

Sign him and bench Kiko… Well he’ll be in the stands soon anyway

He was unbelievable too! Sign him up, starts Saturday for me

What do we think?
On this evidence, they would be stupid not to sign him as the young Frenchman displayed a stunning range of passing that allowed Leeds to stay on the front foot.
Meslier played one pass in particular to Jack Harrison that was outstanding.
Of course, as a goalkeeper, his main aim is to keep the ball out of the net, and he made four saves to deny Arsenal any more goals.
