Leeds United supporters have been reacting on Twitter after summer-signing Raphinha’s impressive first-half performance. 

The Brazilian winger has continued his fine recent form for the by laying on his sixth Premier League assist of the season for Jack Harrison this afternoon.

Leeds welcomed Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United to in the three o’clock kick-off and it’s the home side who have been taken control of proceedings in the opening stages.

Raphinha has quickly established himself a fans’ favourite with Marcelo Bielsa’s men since arriving from Stade Rennais in the summer and has further endeared himself to the Leeds faithful with another entertaining performance.

The South American produced a fine piece of skill to nutmeg a defender before pulling off an impressive body swerve to provide Harrison a tap in for Leeds’ opener, and his display appears to have caught the eye once again.

“Raphinha best player on the pitch by a million miles. On a different level.”

@LiamKFootball

“Raphinha is like playing with all the cheat codes on.”

@TSSLUFC

“Tenacious and ferocious start from Leeds and deservedly into the lead. Loved the way Jack Harrison was almost applauding Raphinha’s brilliance before the ball hit the back of the net. Great football”

@marshyleeds

“Raphinha is pure quality”

“Raphinha has now been directly involved in 12 goals (6G, 6A) in 25 Premier League appearances this season. Wonderful talent.”

@LUFCDATA

“Raphinha is out of this world. Pace, skill and the ultimate team player. We’re really lucky to have him. Superb.”

It’s been another majestic performance from the skillful winger, and the Leeds faithful will be hoping they can hang onto their star over the summer.
