Meslier broke all-time Premier League record during Leeds’ win vs Wolves

Leeds United No.1 Illan Meslier broke the Premier League record of becoming the youngest goalkeeper to reach 100 appearances in his side’s 4-2 victory against Wolves.

The ‘outstanding’ French shotstopper is rightly considered as one of the finest young players in his position in Europe. And while Meslier does often get slated for making the odd mistake from time to time, there is no questioning that he has been a brilliant signing for the Whites.

Against Wolves, Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier set the record for becoming the youngest player to hit 100 appearances as his side defeated Wolves in a crucial fixture.

How old was Leeds’ Meslier when he broke the Premier League record against Wolves?

The highly-rated star is often credited for making a habit of making the most impossible of saves, whilst also possessing the ability to pass from the back with ease.

It comes as no surprise that growing up, Meslier idolized perhaps the most influential No.1 in the history of football in Bayern Munich and German legend, Manuel Neuer.

As Leeds got a 4-2 win over Wolves, Opta Joe revealed that at 23 years of 16 days, Illan Meslier broke the Premier League record of being the youngest goalkeeper to hit 100 appearances.

Leeds have a special talent on their books

If that does not emphasise just how spectacular Meslier has been during his time at the club and that too at such a young age, what will?

After all, most shotstoppers peak in their late 20s and are often not even handed starting places at such a young age.

So, the fact that Illan Meslier has even made 100 Premier League appearances for Leeds, and managed to shatter the Premier League record against Wolves while he was at it just shows how much he has already accomplished in his career.
