Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which the club relayed footage of Stuart Dallas’ opening for on Saturday.

In the fixture itself, United remarkably overcame all the odds to secure a historic victory against the league leaders, Manchester , with a brace from Dallas seeing Marcelo Bielsa’s side take a 2-1 win from the clash at the Etihad Stadium, despite Liam Cooper being sent off late on in the first half.

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

However, despite his red card, Cooper still played a big part in the victory, with the centre-back’s pinpoint long ball up to Helder Costa being what eventually led to Dallas’ 42nd-minute opener.

And, after Leeds shared footage of the goal that put them 1-0 up against Pep Guardiola’s men on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the moment of magic, with many singling out Cooper for praise.

Do you think Cooper's challenge deserved a red card?

So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to the footage?

“The pass from Liam Cooper – sensational.”

@dazzapforever

“Costa had a hand in both goals, well played. And, the assist by Patrick Bamford. But that pass by Liam Cooper. I hope we don’t get labelled long ball merchants now.”

@deanoooh2020

“Brillant goal. Side before self every time.”

@Damien_Cms

“Didn’t even register Cooper’s pass yesterday. Wow!”

@SanderAmundsen

“That long ball from Coops.”

@Eric__m8

“Just beautiful.”

@chf1981

“Can we just appreciate that ball from Cooper?”

@SamBirdyy

All in all, it would appear that these Leeds fans hold no ill feelings towards Cooper whatsoever, despite his rather reckless challenge making his teammates’ task considerably more challenging against City, although, having watched the footage, the ball from the centre-back is certainly worthy of praise.

In other : ‘Hope this isn’t true’, ‘Something’s just not right’ – Lots of Leeds fans reacted as this transfer news emerged
