Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to share their criticism for Whites defender Liam Cooper and his performance during the Yorkshire club’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Goals from Olivier Giroud, Kurt Zouma and Christian Pulisic delivered Frank Lampard’s side the three points after Patrick Bamford put his side ahead in the early stages of the game.
After the game had ended and Leeds fell to another defeat, it was Cooper who picked up a lot of criticism for his performance.
So, what did these Leeds fans make of Cooper and his display against Chelsea?
Liam Cooper is a big problem going forward. Love the man but he’s not good enough at this level. Give KP the arm band please!

Cooper should just resign and leave. He’s an embarrassment. As is alioski

The 29-year-old, who is currently valued at £6.3 million, signed to Leeds back in 2014 for just £675k. Since then, the defender has gone on to make 206 appearances for the Elland Road outfit in which he has managed to grab himself eight goals and provide five assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Leeds have adapted to the premier league well in all fairness but I can’t take Liam Cooper as a premier league player never mind a captain. He’s absolutely awful #CHELEE

Leeds Live gave Cooper a match rating of 6/10 and said that he “has to have some blame in letting Giroud get away for the equaliser.”
Liam Cooper a liability again this week @LUFC
