Starting with an easy one who is Leeds United's top Premier League goalscorer this season?

In recent weeks, he’s been more active in the first team. Since playing against Southampton, he’s played the full 90 minutes of every game since then, including against (as per Transfermarkt).

“Sorry Nigel I disagree as well he has been outstanding since commanding a starting place. He’s quick good on the ball and strong in the air. I think he has earned a few mistakes here and there after his performances. A very shrewd signing who looks at home in this league already.”

Against Liverpool, Llorente had picked up the highest rating in the game – 8.17. Apart from scoring the goal, he won four tackles and four aerial duels. He also had a passing success rate of 94%, which also demonstrated his impressive performance (as per WhoScored).

So the Spaniard clearly had a pretty decent game and he deserves praise for it.
