Charlie Taylor was Leeds United's best player at the weekend

Charlie Taylor stood out on his return for Leeds United.

Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor impressed on his return to the starting line-up, although was unable to prevent the club losing to QPR.

The left-back had been sidelined with an illness over the past month, but showed no signs of poor healthy during his performance at Loftus Road.

It was not a good performance from Leeds as they suffered a 1-0 loss, with few standout performances.

Taylor's display, all things considered, meant he was the club's best player in the defeat - and won more tackles and interceptions than any of his fellow defenders. 

The three tackles he won was the same amount as the rest of the back four combined.

Scott Wootton 0 3 0

Fellow defender Liam Cooper praised Taylor's performance in a post-match interview to with BBC Radio Leeds, demonstrating the high regard in which the 22-year-old is regarded.

Leeds have now lost their last two games in a row, and host automatic promotion contenders Hull City this weekend. If they are to get a result, more players will have to step up in the same way as Taylor.
