Dominic Matteo has made a huge claim on Instagram following Leeds United’s win over Aston Villa on Friday night – claiming Leeds duo Luke Ayling and Stuart Dallas are the most-improved players in English football.

Leeds earned their third win of the Premier League campaign on Friday night with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa. Patrick Bamford netted all three goals, including a tap-in, a stunning strike from 20 yards, and a curling effort in a crowded box.

The win saw Leeds climb to 10 points from their first six league games – winning three, drawing one and losing twice. It sees them sit, currently, in fifth place before the two Premier League fixtures on Monday night.

Following the win over Villa, Leeds icon Matteo claimed Leeds duo Ayling and Dallas, who cost little over £2million – Ayling at £750,000 (Mail) and Dallas at £1.5million (Belfast Telegraph) – are the most-improved in the country.

Both Ayling and Dallas have been with Leeds for some time now, along with the likes of Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips and plenty more. Many have improved under Marcelo Bielsa, but the aforementioned quartet are probably the pick of the bunch.

Leeds have a long rest until their next fixture, when they play host to in-form Leicester City on Monday night – witgh the Foxes’ tails up after they secured a late win over Arsenal on Sunday night.
