Many Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to hail Illan Meslier’s display against Brighton in the Premier League.

Seeking a victory that would see them rise to 14th in the league, Marcelo Bielsa’s side were extremely fortunate to secure a 0-0 against Graham Potter’s men at the Amex Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League, with French striker Neal Maupay particularly culpable of missing several glaring chances.

One player who was instrumental in Leeds managing to secure a draw however was Whites keeper Illan Meslier, with the Leeds number one making several outstanding saves to deny the likes of Leandro Trossard and Solly March.

Is Illan Meslier World Class?





Consequently, many Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to slam the performance of the U-21 French international:

What did these Leeds fans make of Meslier’s display against Brighton?

“Meslier outstanding again. Great keeper. MOT”


“Terrible showing yes, but we’ve taken away a point from a difficult place. Big credit where credit’s due… Meslier was immense. People still forgetting how good this kid is. Huge stops at big moments. Massive talent”


“Meslier is man of the match every week that sums it up”
“Meslier was unreal today, all the credit for the clean sheet should go to him”
“Meslier is ridiculous, another clutch save”
The Yorkshire outfit, currently 17th in the league table with just two wins after 13 games, will be looking to secure a vital win when they host Patrick Viera’s Crystal Palace side on Tuesday evening at Elland Road in their next match in the Premier League.
