A lot of Leeds United fans flocked to a post from Illan Meslier after he made his league debut for the Whites in their 4-0 thrashing of Hull City.

The Frenchman made his first start in the Championship after Kiko Casilla was found guilty of using racist language towards Jonathan Leko and was handed an eight-game ban by the FA.

Did Meslier impress on his league debut?

Yes, looked solid

Yes, looked solid

No, had very little to do

No, had very little to do

This could give the 20-year-old the chance to stake a claim as Leeds’ number one, and he made a solid start on Saturday and impressed these Whites fans.

What do we think?

Meslier kept a clean sheet, although he did not have very much to do, facing just two shots on target – which he dealt with.

The Frenchman, who is valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt, was given a 6/10 for his performance by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

His kicking was a bit off (according to the YEP), but other than that, this was a decent debut from Meslier.

It will be interesting to see how he does in the coming weeks.
