Leeds United went into their Premier League clash with Everton with an unchanged side for the first time this season.

That meant that Ezgjan Alioski kept his spot over Rodrigo who could have seen the Whites revert to their normal system in midfield.

Leeds kept their first clean sheet after two thrashings against Arsenal, and Illan Meslier impressed behind his defence.

The Frenchman was called into action immediately.

After a Liam Cooper mistake, the ball fell to Abdoulaye Doucoure who when it looked easier to score, he missed.

Meslier from point-blank range managed to get a strong arm behind the ball and save his side, not for the first time this season.

His save gave Leeds the chance to get into the game, and they should have been ahead after Jack Harrison and Patrick Bamford missed numerous sitters.

Jordan Pickford made good saves, but it was Meslier who definitely got the better of the keeper battle during the first half.

Many Leeds United fans have reacted to the performance of Meslier and were blown away by his efforts in-between the sticks.

The majority couldn’t believe that the youngster managed to save his side, especially in the opening stages and that early stop.
