Mateusz Klich proved to be one of the stars of the show yesterday afternoon and, no, I can’t believe that I’ve just written that either.
It’s fair to say that the midfielder has not had the best time at Leeds so far since signing for the club last season.
Certainly, many of us had written him off but pre-season had suggested that he might start turning things around.
And, after that against Stoke, it looks like he is well on the way to start proving a few points.
A controlled display in the middle of the park, what was most impressive was that ability to run the game despite the illustrious midfielders around him that Stoke had on show.
Certainly, he was one of our best players and it looks as though plenty of our fans loved it on Twitter too.
Let’s see the best of what was said on social media…
Every player today deserves credit. But what I love most, Klich – comes back from a loan and a player frozen out, fights for his place and gets his rewards. Absolutely buzzing for the lad #lufc

Klich, Philips, Ayling…rejuvenated. Douglas looks like the steal of the summer. Top-drawer. #lufc ????

Klich got a standing ovation.
Maybe this season won't be so bad after all #lufc

Bit of a strange sub that but I'm not even going to try and work out Bielsa's thinking. Great performance by Klich, was everywhere in that first half ???? #lufc

Klich deserves applauded, way he’s worked hard and got into the first team after being snubbed last year, instead of just leaving. More players should be like that #lufc
