Leeds United centre-half Liam Cooper is a regular go-to for criticism on social media channels following matches, and the 26-year-old was a hot topic of conversation again following our 3-1 victory over Stoke City.

Opening the Championship campaign of 2018/19 with a storming victory on Elland Road soil in new manager Marcelo Bielsa’s competitive bow in the dugout, fans couldn’t have been more delighted with what they saw.

Both the quality on display from the side, but also the attitude – blocks and digging in, allied to chasing lost causes. Ultimately, we thoroughly deserved the three points on the day and plenty are hoping that’s a sign of things to come for the rest of the year now.

With Cooper not new to criticism, fair’s fair, he deserved every single plaudit he received following the game as fans took to their mobile phones to express their delight at the result, and his individual showing hadn’t gone unnoticed.

With Pontus Jansson still to return to contention things should only improve in the backline in time as well.
