Michael Owen is crazy about Leeds star: "The skill, vision, he’s a player that I love."

Despite Leeds' poor position, the Brazilian star has been one of Premier League's most consistent players. Raphinha has been a star in Brazil, scoring eight goals and providing one assist from 17 games. This kind of form makes Raphinha a target for transfer to some of Europe's most prestigious clubs.

Owen was however an attentive observer as Leeds beat Burnley 3-1 on Sunday. Jack Harrison, Stuart Dallas, and Dan James scored Leeds' goals. The Whites did not, once again, rely on Raphinha magic.

Leeds nearly opened the scoring thanks to Raphinha's brilliant play. After Wayne Hennessey, Clarets' keeper, was spotted off his line by Raphinha's drive from the halfway line, the Wales keeper felt relief and rushed back to his line. Raphinha's shot touched the top of the crossbar.

Raphinha believes in 'that vision.

Owen spoke out about Raphinha's effort and Owen made big claims about the Leeds star.

Owen said that Owen loves the player and told Premier League Productions, "I mean it's a great player." He has that quality about him. He has that ability. He has that vision.

They were three points ahead of them, as a defeat would have put them three points below the relegation zone. They are now eight points ahead.

Bielsa spoke to Sky Sports after the match and said that it was necessary to win, but it was a relief to be able get it.

"We won the game, they caused danger, but not enough danger for us.

"But it was difficult to maintain the game. They made it extremely difficult.

"I was worried it would be hard to go again after Burnley's equaliser, but we were able to win the game and take control of it again.

"We played a lot as I would like us to."
