Leeds struggled to break down 10-man Preston but the Red Devils academy product, who signed on a season-long loan last week, was one of their outstanding performers.[spacer height=”20px”]

He was the third player substituted by manager Thomas Christiansen when he was replaced by winger Stuart Dallas after 82 minutes.[spacer height=”20px”]

But Leeds supporters took to social media to enthuse about the calibre and quality of the on-loan United youngster.[spacer height=”20px”]

Borthwick-Jackson was granted permission to join Leeds after being deemed surplus to requirement at Old Trafford.[spacer height=”20px”]

He made the breakthrough under former United manager Louis van Gaal in the second half of 2015-16 but did not get a look-in under Jose Mourinho and spent most of last season on loan at Wolves, where he struggled to make an impact.[spacer height=”20px”]
