@LeeCox1510 As strong a starting 11 on paper for us, happy with that, struijk massively unlucky though. #lufc

@Galtsonian Great to see Firpo back. Disruptive start to his career due to pre-season then recent injuries and now needs 20 games plus to get fully bedded in to #Bielsaball.

@CornerWedPhoto Struijk out for Firpo and Gelhardt out for Rodrigo. Hopefully James and Harrison can replicate their form from the Spurs game. #LUFC #mot #intoemlads

@pauljchambers Bit harsh, dropping Struijk. But thank god for a stronger XI and bench #lufc

@Davehaymot Glad Raphina and Rodrigo back for Leeds today - big game for Firpo too. Come on #lufc #BHALEE

@WWELUFC I like the lineup. Sure, shame on Joffy & Pascal not to start but Joffy can come on off the bench. 3 points hopefully either way. #LUFC

@mightywhitespod This is not a slight on Liam Cooper, and I hope he has a great game - but I personally think Struijk should be first choice at this point. Would like to see Gelhardt but can understand why not. #lufc #MOT

@EastStandUpper Good, strong set of names there… but a good XI? Reserving judgment. #lufc

@whitesoldier6 Can't wait to see Firpo's attacking capabilities obviously that was what swayed his selection before Struijk #lufc

@BenNewell1919 Very strange decision to drop Struijk. Also feel as though Gelhardt deserved another start. Not sure about the balance with 3 wingers on the pitch either. Having said that, in Bielsa we trust. Cmon LEEDS #LUFC #ALAW
