Leeds United secured a 2-0 win over Barnsley in the Championship earlier today.
The Whites were under tremendous pressure after the thrashing against Wolves and Christiansen will be relieved with today’s result.
The 44-year-old is losing the patience of the fans and he will have to earn their support by putting together a winning run now.
The Leeds faithful reacted to today’s performance against Barnsley on Twitter and it seems that one particular player has impressed them a lot.
Caleb Ekuban’s hardworking display earned a lot of plaudits from the Leeds United fans on social media.
The 22-year-old forward displayed breathtaking pace against Barnsley and his defensive contribution was immense as well.
The former Chievo star joined Leeds United on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee earlier this summer. If he can keep up this level of performance for the rest of the season, he could well turn into a fan favourite at Elland Road.
Here is what the Leeds fans had to say about his performance on Twitter today.
Ekuban has covered a mammoth amount of ground today, in fact he’s just served me in Stanningley Tesco. #lufc

Ekuban ran more in first 10 minutes than the lazy fat german slob did in every game he’s played combined

Literally everywhere you looked Ekuban was there, trying to help the team out and make himself useful. Proper put a shift in.

Ekuban has looked excellent both on and off the ball. Hope he can add goals to his game! #lufc

Bet the fans who overreacted on Wednesday look stupid now.
Feel Ekuban is gonna be a real fan favorite here. His workrate is second to non, he puts himself about, doesn’t mind a tackle & is always trying to bring the other attackers into play.
Could have found a gem here. #lufc

Ekuban’s got such a good attitude. Comes across as such a decent lad in interviews too. Can’t wait for him to get his first league goal. #lufc
