Oriol Romeu produced the tackle of the season after he incredibly denied Raphinha from shooting during Leeds United vs. Southampton.
Romeu brilliantly chased after Raphinha who looked destined to have a shot on goal after being put through by Stuart Dallas.
Though the Brazilian winger failed to get a shot off after the Spaniard performed a heroic last-ditch tackle to stop him in his tracks.
He perfectly slid in to knock the ball out of the Leeds man's trail with Saints keeper Alex McCarthy cleaning up.
Needless to say, Romeu's tackle sent social media into overdrive.
One Twitter user wrote: "Undoubtedly one of the best tackles I've ever seen."
A second tweeted: "That is an unbelievable tackle from Romeu."
A third added: "An absolute incredible tackle from Romeu. Was that the tackle of the season?"
That is the best challenge I've seen in years. Phenomenal from Romeu.

Romeu's first half tackle proved to be in vain as Leeds ran out 3-0 winners with Patrick Bamford, Stuart Dallas and Raphinha getting on the score-sheet.
