The Whites defeated Stoke City 3-0 away from home, and with that have won four of their opening five games in the 2019-20 Championship campaign.
It was once again another dominant performance from the Yorkshire club and they were superior in every aspect to them.
Stuart Dallas, Ezgjan Alioski and Patrick Bamford scored for the Whites but it was a fantastic team effort. The likes of Pablo Hernandez, Kalvin Phillips, and Adam Forshaw were equally good.
However, one player who stood above the rest was Ben White. The young defender, signed by Marcelo Bielsa on loan this summer, has not only filled the boots left by Pontus Jansson but has even bettered the squad.
He has been arguably one of the best defenders in the Championship so far, and Leeds fans are just falling in love with him in every single game.
Here are some of the selected tweets from the Leeds fans on Twitter:

Ben White is like the player that doesn’t play, he’s a defensive silent assassin as he goes all game unnoticed but puts in an absolutely quality shift! #lufc

If Ben White started beating his chest and giving the Leeds salute after every game, he’d be a cult hero by now.
Instead he just defends superbly, with the minimun of fuss & carries himself like a complete pro.
It’s funny who we choose as our hero’s sometime…..#lufc #benwhite
