It was a huge blow for Jesse Marsch’s side to lose such an influential player with the club fighting to save their Premier League status.

Leeds decided to put 3,000 t-shirts on the seats at the away end at the Emirates in a show of support for the star.

Each had a picture of Dallas on with the words: ‘There’s Only One Stuart Dallas’.

The 31-year-old is a popular figure with both fans and teammates alike.

The club put out an emotional statement when confirming the severity of his injury shortly after the City game.

It read: “Stuart Dallas faces a lengthy period out of action due to a femoral fracture sustained in yesterday’s Premier League game with Manchester City.

“Stuart was kept overnight at Leeds General Infirmary and will now travel to London for surgery and further tests.

“It is impossible to put into words just how important Stuart is to Leeds United on and off the field.

“Anyone who knows Stuart, knows he will come back from this stronger than ever, and in the meantime, he is sure to make his presence known at both Thorp Arch and Elland Road.

“There’s only one Stuart Dallas.”
