‘Now say that without crying!’ – Plenty of Leeds United fans react as Watford lash out following defeat



A host of Leeds United’s first-team players featured in the Whites’ 6-0 win over Watford under-23s in the Professional Development League on Monday night.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side returned to the top of the Sky Bet Championship table with a win over Barnsley at the weekend – goals from Eddie Nketiah and Mateusz Klich securing all three points for Leeds at Oakwell.

The former started for the Whites’ under-23 side on Monday night, though, as he looks to keep trying to get into Bielsa’s starting line-up ahead of Patrick Bamford.

There was also places in the under-23 side for the likes of Tyler Roberts and Luke Ayling, with the latter stepping up his return from injury after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

In the end, Leeds’ experience and quality proved too much for the Hornets, with goals from Nketiah, Roberts, Ayling, Robbie Gotts and Pascal Struijk securing a big win for the Whites.

This was something that Watford seemingly weren’t happy about, and after Ayling scored Leeds’ sixth goal of the night, they took to their Twitter page to issue a dig at Leeds’ team selection.

Leeds’ official Twitter account responded to this slight outburst from the Premier League side, and here, we take a look at the best reactions…
