Leeds United: Schmeichel named FA Cup player of the third round

Leeds United no.1 Kasper Schmeichel has been named as the EON player of the round for his sterling performances in two FA Cup third-round ties with Premiership rivals Arsenal this month.

Schmeichel said: "I'm delighted to win the award and I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me. As for the saves, it's what I'm there for.

"In the end, we were all gutted we didn't get a result at Elland Road in the replay, but both games were a fantastic experience for everyone."
