'Garbage', 'Clearly needs a rest' - MOT Super Fans predict Leeds changes v Newcastle

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 United fell to yet another disappointing defeat in the Premier League on Friday, losing 2-1 against West Ham.

Despite being handed the lead from the penalty spot, the Whites went on to lose, making it back-to-back defeats after scoring first.

Marcelo Bielsa wasn’t bluffing with his early team-news, with Rodrigo being the only change for the injured Robin Koch.

That team struggled against West Ham and rarely looked like troubling them.

Despite having 64% possession, the Whites had six fewer shots and one less corner than their opposing outfit, who looked far more dangerous on the counter [WhoScored].

The likes of Said Benrahma caused Leeds problems all night, and if it wasn’t for Sebastien Haller missing bucketloads of chances, it could have been much worst.

This makes the upcoming clash against Newcastle on Wednesday a must-win game.

Should Leeds lose that, they could easily find themselves dragged into a battle at the wrong end of the table after such a positive start to life in the Premier League.

We have asked our MOT Super Fans who they would drop for the crunch clash with the Magpies, and there is a recurring answer.

Jack Harrison has struggled in recent weeks, and both the winger and his left-hand side partner Ezgjan Alioski came up to be dropped.

Both were replaced at half-time against West Ham, so it would the logical choice and no surprise to see the duo on the bench on Wednesday evening.
