Leeds United beat Leicester City 3-1 on Sunday and Raphinha caught the eye of several supporters.

The Brazilian has been a bit of a revelation since signing for £17million last summer.

He has made himself one of the first names on the team sheet, too, and he did not disappoint at the King Power Stadium.

Leeds found themselves trailing early on, but two moments of magic from Raphinha helped the Whites into a lead before Jack Harrison added a third late on.

First, the winger produced a superb ball to find Patrick Bamford, who in turn played a simple pass for Stuart Dallas to score the equaliser.

He then pulled off a brilliant first-time pass to split the Leicester defence open, with Bamford finding the top corner as a result.

Many Whites expressed their delight at the 24-year-old’s skill.

In the previous match against Newcastle Raphinha also displayed his brilliance with a fine bottom corner finish, before playing a wonderful cross into Harrison to score the winner.

The way in which Raphinha has adapted to the Premier League and Marcelo Bielsa’s style is mightily impressive.

He is proving to be a bit of a bargain, too, with one fan suggesting he is already world-class.

That is high praise indeed, and we certainly believe Marcelo Bielsa can help Raphinha achieve his huge potential.

Here is how some Leeds supporters reacted to Raphinha’s performance against the Foxes.
