Leeds fans were buzzing on Saturday as they managed to finally pick up their first Premier League win of the season as they swept aside Watford with a 1-0 victory thanks to Diego Llorente’s first goal of the season.
Will Joe Gelhardt become a starter at Leeds?
It wasn’t just about picking up three points, though, as Leeds and Meslier managed to record their first clean sheet in the league – and his coolness inside his own penalty area has made some Leeds fans drool as the club shared footage of him turning away from an onrushing Watford attacker pressuring him.
A lot of Leeds fans are very happy on Twitter with this latest Meslier footage.
What have these Leeds fans had to say?
“90th minute, 1-0 up, on his bad side, what a boy”
“He’s way too icey”
“Best goalie in the league”
“Gave me a heart attack like”
“Really wish he wouldn’t do this”
“I can’t believe that players always fall for it”
“Meslier’s obvious desperation to get outfield is palpable. I love him so much”
“Neuer- the German meslier”
Meslier has been able to establish himself as Leeds’ number-one goalkeeper since the club were promoted into the Premier League, as during his initial loan spell, Kiko Casilla started the majority of games as Leeds won the Championship title.
The French shot-stopper has been impressing Michael Owen so much that the former Liverpool striker claimed to have been watching him since he was 16 in Leeds’ academy, only that Meslier was with Lorient in France when he was 16 years old and obviously, therefore, didn’t come through the club’s youth ranks.
Regardless, he is certainly making a name for himself with his performances at Elland Road.
