West Ham fans were hugely impressed with the performance of Illan Meslier for Leeds United yesterday.
Leeds were beaten 2-1 by the Hammers in the end but the 21-year-old stopper put in a truly brilliant display.
David Moyes’s men were battered by Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the first-half at Elland Road. That isn’t to say that West Ham didn’t have their chances to score though.
Michail Antonio, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals were all denied by brilliant saves from Leeds ace Meslier.
The Frenchman produced the goods in the second-half as well and he was unlucky to end up on the losing side.
Leeds signed Meslier from Lorient in the summer of 2020 for around £5 million (The Athletic) after he spent the previous campaign on loan at Elland Road.
And that is proving to be absolutely outstanding business for the West Yorkshire outfit.
West Ham fans blown away by Leeds ace Meslier
The young goalkeeper really does look the business. He’s the real deal.
Leeds are very lucky to have him.
There is a very good chance that he will go on to become one of the very best goalkeepers in world football.
