Leeds United took on Shamrock Rovers in a pre-season friendly today and came out of the game with a comfortable 3-0 triumph.

The result was a fair one give the domination of the side and Leeds fans will be pleased to see their team continuing to improve.

It was also a good performance for one of their new signings, as Swedish striker Marcus Antonsson found the back of the net twice – either side of a Chris Wood penalty.

It was the best that Leeds have seen of the Swede since his arrival from Kalmar as the club’s first signing of the summer.

The striker was the top scorer in the Allsvenskan prior to his move and there is absolutely no doubt that he knows how to find the back of the net.

Leeds fans are of course right to be getting excited about the talented striker.

He comes into the team already in form and a couple of goals in pre-season will no doubt help him settle ahead of the campaign ahead.

Here is how Leeds fans reacted to the performance on Twitter…
