'Massive miss', 'Players moving around' – Super Fans pick Leeds starting XI v Huddersfield

This is part of a regular series from our panel of Leeds United Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Elland Road and Thorp Arch.


Leeds are on a roll and travel to Huddersfield for the early game on Saturday looking for their sixth win in a row.

The prize would be leapfrogging West Brom at the top of the Championship – they don’t play until Sunday when they host Swansea.

Marcelo Bielsa delivered some fresh injury news from his press conference on Thursday. Jamie Shackleton has picked up a new problem after making his return for the Under-23s last week.

Tyler Roberts is still out, along with long-term absentee Adam Forshaw.

Kalvin Phillips is also out of the game after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season for a stupid challenge in the game against Middlesbrough last week.

That means that Bielsa will be forced into at least one change for the game, but who should step into the breach? And should Bielsa make any other changes?

They’re the questions that we asked our esteemed panel of Super Fans – this is what they had to say:

Marcelo Bielsa has said that Ben White is the player who will take the place of Phillips in midfield and said he had the football skills to do a good job there.

Most of our Super Fans are of the same opinion but some don’t want the defence broken up and two want Alfie McCalmont to come in instead.

That’s understandable – Leeds have the best defensive record in the Championship – but we think it’s a brilliant opportunity to see just how good White is.
