Leeds United’s loan to buy capture of Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Helder Costa over the summer certainly got tongues wagging given what we’ve seen the 25-year-old is capable of doing at Championship level, and although it’s fair to say he’s really yet to get himself up and running at Elland Road, in Tuesday evening’s clash with West Bromwich Albion we more than saw extra flashes that he was getting there.
With Costa only getting 90 minutes on four occasions so far this year, the fact he’s now got the full match under his belt for the last two, shows that Bielsa is far happier with his fitness levels and we’re starting to see better from him with that baseline now there given what our Argentine gaffer wants from players.
Although he’s officially only got one goal & one assist to his name, it shouldn’t be too long before he’s heading towards double figures.
Following the West Brom win, the player took to social media to celebrate the game and the fans were delighted with him.
Just what we need, speedy gonzalez

Showed moments of brilliance and a real desire to use every bit of energy to chase down the attacking balls. Should be proud of that shift. #MOT
