Lots of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to laud Joe Gelhardt’ display in the Premier League draw against Southampton.

The Leeds youngster, brought on by Marcelo Bielsa in the second half for Mateusz Klich, was superb in the draw against Wolves, winning the penalty in the 93rd minute which Rodrigo converted to ensure as Leeds managed to make their consorted pressure in the second half count and ensure they didn’t lose their second successive game in the Premier League and gain a point which could provide invaluable.

After Hwang Hee-chan 10th minute goal for Bruno Lage’s side in the first half, Gelhardt weaved his way into the box in full time stoppage time on his home debut, beating multiple men to win a vital penalty which Rodrigo duly converted past Jose Sa, his first goal of the campaign for the Whites.

However, the result was marred by the injury sustained by star player Raphinha in the second half, forcing the Brazilian star to depart the game.
