The Leeds United faithful have taken to social media in droves this afternoon, only for one particular member of the club’s team to receive special praise.
Llorente in goal
Marcelo Bielsa’s men were back in action recently.
The unmanned Whites welcomed Watford to Elland Road, their sights set on a much-needed first three-point shot of the Premier League campaign.
And when all was said and done in West Yorkshire, kicking off the club’s season is precisely what Leeds did.
A lone goal was enough to guide the hosts to a 1-0 win over Watford, knocking them out of the English top flight relegation zone in the process.
Diego Llorente proved to be the hero of the day, reacting faster to fit in after a corner kick from the right caused chaos in the away area.

Llorente makes the difference. Strong on the tackle and fast with the ball

If Llorente stays in shape, it will be huge for us this season.

If Diego Llorente were not made of chocolate, he would be among the best defenders in the world, so good when he is in top form. #lufc

Fearing all those missed opportunities could come back to haunt us. How good is Llorente by the way. Our defense looks 10 times better with him in it.

The difference with llorente in the team is immense. It has been class.

Display of the dominant team for the full 90 minutes. The difference Llorente makes is remarkable, as he looks so calm and confident in and out of possession giving confidence to those around him as well. He blamed an excellent performance with the winner and a vital 3 points. ACUITY
