Jamie Redknapp was blown away by the impact of Leeds United defender Stuart Dallas in the Premier League clash with Leicester on Sunday.

The Northern Ireland international scored the equaliser in the 3-1 win after being asked to play in midfield once again by Marcelo Bielsa.

It was the perfect away performance in the end, with Dallas also playing a role in the game-sealing goal from Jack Harrison.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ live coverage of the game, Redknapp was in awe of the influence that Dallas had on the game.

“It’s a fantastic team goal,” he said.

“I’m highlighting his run here, he’s got his arm up, Castagne has got to see that run. If he sprints, he probably would have tracked him.

“The touch is so perfect. It’s a really good finish, it’s not an easy one. Stuart Dallas’ energy in this game has been influential.”


Dallas was phenomenal, just as the entire squad was once again.

The 29-year-old continues to prove his worth in the Premier League and has become one of the most underrated players in the entire division after promotion.

No one kept more possession in the front six for Leeds than Dallas, who caused constant problems for Leicester, who found him incredibly hard to deal with [WhoScored].

When Dallas first arrived at Elland Road, he couldn’t start a game and was often only used off the bench – never would he have believed he would have been here years later.

Marcelo Bielsa will obviously take some credit, but the majority of that must also go to Dallas who has become irreplaceable at Elland Road.
