MOT View: Leeds United star set for two major milestones in November
Leeds United mainstay Stuart Dallas has seen it all at Elland Road.
The Northern Ireland international arrived in West Yorkshire from Brentford in 2015, and there haven’t been many positions that he hasn’t featured in.
Under Marcelo Bielsa, the 29-year-old has become a pivotal part of the Whites side and that has continued after promotion to the Premier League.
Dallas is set to be celebrated this month, with two major milestones approaching.
On Thursday evening, the defender will make his 50th international appearance for Northern Ireland against Slovakia.
What a game to do it in, with one win standing between them and a spot in the 2021 European Championships.
After this international break, Dallas is then likely to make his 200th appearance for Leeds in their game against Arsenal, an equally important game.

What a player Dallas has become at Elland Road.
When he first arrived in West Yorkshire, he was classed as a left-midfielder who was more of a rotation option – now he has turned into a solid left-back and one of the best in the Premier League.
Only Everton midfielder Allan has made more tackles so far this season, not bad for a player who cost less than £2million for Leeds.
Dallas has become Mr Reliable for both club and country in recent years, and guiding his side to the EUROs and then three points against Arsenal would be one of the best months of his career.
Bring on these milestones.
