'What is this?', 'Beyond laughable' - Leeds United fans react to 'painful' team news vs Chelsea
Marcelo Bielsa has made … changes to his side ahead of Leeds United's Saturday lunchtime clash with Chelsea – and fans have been quick to react on social media.
The Whites would move level on points with 10th-placed Arsenal with a win over the Blues, and could also bring to an end a run of two straight defeats.
They face a tough task, however, with Chelsea still yet to lose a game under new manager Thomas Tuchel.
A win for the Blues would move them level on points with Leicester City in third.
With that in mind, Bielsa has shuffled his pack a little from Monday night’s 2-0 defeat to West Ham.
Pascal Struijk comes back into the side to partner Diego Llorente at the heart of defence, with Liam Cooper dropping out.
Ezgjan Alioski returns at left-back, allowing Stuart Dallas to push back into midfield. Mateusz Klich is on the bench.
Jack Harrison is also given a run out – Helder Costa has to make do with a spot among the substitutes.
Summer signing Robin Koch is back in the match day squad as well.
Here are some of the best reactions from fans on Twitter:
