Leeds United laboured to one of their most disappointing defeats of the season on Saturday evening, losing 1-0 against Aston Villa.

The Elland Road pitch once again took the headlines, with Anwar El Ghazi’s early goal enough to take all three points for the away side.

It doesn’t get much easier for Leeds, with a trip to Champions League hopefuls West Ham United next up in the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa has a number of problems facing him.

A fresh injury to Pascal Struijk could leave the Whites with no recognised holding midfielder, with no update being given on the fitness of Kalvin Phillips either.

Tyler Roberts has failed to produce in the absence of Rodrigo, and it has left the midfield void of ideas and easy to penetrate at times.

Everyone is hoping for a positive update from Bielsa this week on the fitness of his key players, or it could be a tough evening at the London Stadium.

Changes are on the horizon though, with Helder Costa’s inclusion on Saturday a big sign that Bielsa hasn’t been entirely happy recently.

We asked out MOT Super Fans if they would make any changes on the back of that defeat on Saturday, and the reactions differed entirely.

Some called for Roberts to finally be dropped, whereas some believed our problems were further back in holding midfield with Struijk.
