Leeds United fans on Twitter have been sharing their praise for Ian Poveda and his performance in the first half of the Yorkshire club’s FA Cup clash against Crawley Town. 

Marcelo Bielsa’s side travelled to Crawley to take on the League Two side in the latest round of the FA Cup. During the first half of the game, lots of Whites fans on Twitter flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on Poveda and how he was getting on in the match, with many Leeds fans being very impressed by what they saw from the winger.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say about Poveda’s performance in the first half against Crawley?

“Poveda is a right player! Feet are ridiculous” 

@HarveeyMarshy

Poveda looking very good so far. Always looking to get behind the Crawley backline and looks our most dangerous player. #lufc” 

@LeedsAllOver

“Love Poveda his attitude to football is great and he’ll only get better has to more on his decision making at times however he’s got some ability on him especially his footwork” 

@jimmy_L_UFC

“Poveda might not have made it at other clubs but he’s now playing under Marcelo Biesla! He’s a cracking player!” 

@rugbyleaguelady

Poveda looks a little gem. Very lively. A player there. #LUFC” 

@TWLUFC

“I know it’s Crawley town we’re playing but isn’t Poveda just a breath of fresh air?” 

@Jacko__LUFC

“Poveda’s footwork is unbelievable.. going to be some player him”

@JakeWardLufc

“Oh my word Poveda…”

Looking at this group of tweets from this bunch of Leeds fans, it’s clear to see that they were over the moon with what they saw from Poveda in the first half against Crawley.

Have you been impressed by Poveda so far?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how the 20-year-old has only made nine substitute appearances for Leeds in the Premier League so far this season, it’s good to see him starting a match and showing Bielsa what he is capable of.

Hopefully, the winger can put in a similar performance in the second half as he did in the first.
