Leeds United made it four wins in a row as they thrashed relegation-threatened Hull City 4-0 at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Whites took the lead through Luke Ayling’s deflected effort, before Pablo Hernandez gave them a two-goal cushion shortly into the second-half.
A late brace from second-half substitute Tyler Roberts saw Leeds cruise to a relatively easy three points on the day, as they kept up the pressure on league-leaders West Brom.
One player that will be pleased with his contribution on the day for Marcelo Bielsa’s side is Illan Meslier, who was making his league debut for the Whites.
The Frenchman was called into the starting XI after first-choice goalkeeper Kiko Casilla was found guilty of using racist language towards an opponent earlier this season.
Meslier kept a clean-sheet on his league debut for Leeds though, and will be hoping he can solidify his place in the starting XI, even when Casilla is to return to the side when his suspension concludes in seven games time.
Plenty of the Elland Road faithful took to Twitter to issue their thoughts on Meslier’s performance against Grant McCann’s side.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below….

Another clean sheet thought Meslier had a good debut now to enjoy my rest of the weekend

Meslier stepped up and did absolutely fine. His distribution will get better and more consistent with time; we saw how good this can be in the Arsenal game. Top lad. #lufc

Meslier better than Casilla. Roberts better than Bamford! #lufc
