Leeds United winger Jack Clarke says that the quality of the Whites squad brings out the best in him.

Clarke started Leeds' comeback against Aston Villa on Sunday as the Whites came from two goals behind to beat Dean Smith’s side 3-2 away from home to return to the top of the Championship table ahead of Christmas.

The 18-year old has often been used as a second half substitute by Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa, and has added more pace and drive to the Whites’ attack more often than not.

The teenager has admitted that if the rest of his team-mates are playing well, his performances automatically go up.

“I think it brings out the best in me”, Clarke said on LUTV.

“If they are playing well then I’m playing well.

“When the manager has got confidence in me to put me on, I try and make an impact and when I do make an impact, it’s brilliant."

Clarke has featured in eight Championship games for Leeds so far this season, but is yet to be handed his first start for the club.

With Leeds set to play four times in the next fortnight, Clarke will hope he gets his first start for the club after impressing as a substitute in recent games.
