Leeds United fans have been singling out Raphinha for praise once again after he impressed in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves on Friday.

The scoreline does not tell the whole story and the Whites will feel aggrieved to not have come away with at least a point.

Some big misses and a goal narrowly ruled out for offside shows we came close to scoring, but somehow we were unable to convert one of our 18 shots.

Raphinha was our main creative outlet at Molineux and his set-piece deliveries certainly caught the eye of supporters.

Liam Cooper could have scored a hattrick because of the Brazilian’s skill.

The 24-year-old will be wondering how he did not pick up an assist but he should still be proud of his performance.


SofaScore gave him a rating of 8.8, the second-highest on the pitch behind Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

A return of three big chances created and three dribbles completed shows just how brilliant he was going forward.

He also performed remarkably well in defence, managing four tackles and three interceptions, per SofaScore, as well as four clearances.

Raphinha fits perfectly in this Leeds team and seems to be getting better game after game.

We just hope he does not get too frustrated by his teammates missing the chances he provides.

Here is some of the reaction to the winger’s performance at Molineux.
