Lewis Cook made his Premier League debut for Bournemouth against Manchester United, weeks after sealing a switch from Leeds United.

Bournemouth summer signing Lewis Cook went straight into the Cherries starting line up for their opening Premier League fixture of the season, against Manchester United.

Cook, 19, is the reigning Football League young player of the year, following in the footsteps of previous winner Dele Alli.

Cook achieved that award while at Leeds United, who have in recent years become stagnant in their Championship mid-table mediocrity.

Once a top division powerhouse, they still retain their huge fanbase, but when it came to keeping hold of Lewis Cook, they could not even hold onto him in time for him to reach his 20s.

Cook was sold in July for around £6 million, a figure which could rise, and while Leeds made signings before hand, only one player has arrived since, a bargain buy of Luke Ayling from Bristol City.

The Whites have had a poor start to the season, losing both league games, and have done little to suggest Cook should have stayed around.

Cook's opening Premier League game ended with a 3-1 defeat, and while he showed why the division will be a learning curve for him, he also looked tenacious and able to make an impact.

He was substituted late in the second half for former Leeds winger Max Gradel, and will hope more successful days are around the corner.

With the game broadcast live on SkySports, here is a look at how watching Leeds fans reacted to his performance...
