Many Leeds United fans on social media have been reflecting on Tony Yeboah’s scorcher against Liverpool from August 1995.

The club have brought a wry smile to some supporters after sharing a clip of the wonder goal on Twitter, as they continue to try and stay connected with the fanbase amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic by sharing a selection of strikes from throughout our illustrious history.

Yeboah, himself, has lauded his hit at home to the Anfield natives as his favourite goal from his time at Elland Road, having spent two years in West Yorkshire and scoring 29 times in 56 outings across all competitions.

Who has missed more big chances to score after 37 league games?

Yeboah’s long-range hit against Liverpool has often been lauded as one of the greatest goals in Premier League history, while some supporters have extended that praise to claim it was the best, or at least one of the best, goals ever scored by a Leeds player.

The strike started with the ball being played out to Tony Dorigo on the wing, who floated possession across to Rod Wallace. Yeboah, meanwhile, avoided the attention of Phil Babb to find a pocket of space, from where he perfectly timed his volley for an inch-perfect connection which sent the ball flying into the net off the underside of the crossbar.

The hit won us the match on that glorious Monday night at Elland Road, and fans have flocked to social media to offer their thoughts as they reflected on the moment…

In other Leeds United news, reports have detailed the club’s plans for a £15m transfer.
