Leeds United under-23s were irresistible on Sunday afternoon as they demolished Middlesbrough in the Premier League 2.

Mark Jackson’s side usually have plenty of first-teamers to call upon, but they had to do it by themselves today, with the senior side not playing until tomorrow.

That didn’t make a difference though, as they were four goals to the good inside the first-half against the hopeless Boro side.

Crysencio Summerville has been enjoying his football lately and is playing with so much freedom compared to some wingers at the club.

The Dutch speedster was untouchable against Boro, delivering three assists all as good as goals, especially the first one.

The winger looked trapped in the corner, but swiftly nutmegged his man and laid it on a plate across the box for Max Dean to tap home.

This started the demolition job only minutes into the game, as Joe Gelhardt did what he does best by scoring more than once yet again.

Summerville has caught the eye on more than one occasion too, scoring a hat-trick of his own against Burnley last month.

Many Leeds fans have reacted to the performance of Summerville, and it is fair to say that they were delighted with what they saw.

The majority have urged Marcelo Bielsa to promote him to the first-team, and they would have no issue with him replacing Helder Costa.
