Ejaria’s Reading were beaten 1-0 by Leeds United on Tuesday.
The Reading midfielder Ovie Ejaria made a positive impression on some Leeds United supporters last night.
Ejaria’s Reading looked to be heading for a 0-0 with the Championship promotion chasers, before Jack Harrison’s 87th-minute strike secured victory for Leeds.
Ejaria, who is expected to turn his loan from Liverpool into a permanent transfer next summer, still managed to catch the eye, however, scoring 7.2 out of 10 on WhoScored.com.
The 22-year-old completed more dribbles (four) than any other player on show at the Madejski Stadium, won three aerial duals and registered one shot on target.
And Leeds fans had plenty of kind words to say about him on Twitter…

Thought he was off it a tad tonight he won’t come up much better than Ejaria this season— Bryn Johnson (@BrynLufc) November 26, 2019
Might get slagged off for this but I don’t care, Phillips wasnt great tonight and their Midfielder, Ejaria, was superb and run him ragged!— RyanC (@RazzaC91) November 27, 2019
Phillips MUST be taken off set pieces too, he hardly ever makes one count.
I adore Phillips so there’s no scapegoating here #lufc
Could3 points last night for #lufc but have to say Swift and Ejaria looked quality for reading both would fit into Leeds system if looking for someone who can cover Roberts role or central midfield and create chances not just shore it up— Craig Hewitt (@cjlufc) November 27, 2019
Sign Ejaria tbh #lufc— Batesy (@batesylufc2) November 26, 2019
Thought ejaria looked a baller last night— Daniel Winter ©™ (@Dan_LUFC_Winter) November 27, 2019
Leeds were one of the clubs linked with a move for Ejaria earlier in his career, with All Nigeria Soccer reporting that the Whites passed up an opportunity to sign him in January 2017 after he suffered an injury.
The Londoner has also had temporary spells at Sunderland and Rangers before joining Reading at the start of this year.
