Leeds United embarrassingly crashed out of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon, losing 3-0 against Crawley Town.

Marcelo Bielsa named a strong side with numerous senior players including Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo involved at the People’s Pension Stadium.

El Loco claimed the result caused great sadness after the game, but it was a case of we’ve been here before for the Whites fanbase.

Where did it all go wrong?

Going into the break at 0-0, Leeds were cruising without causing too many problems against the League Two side.

Bielsa decided to make some changes, bringing on some of his under-23s such as Jack Jenkins and Oliver Casey.

Both struggled massively, and Crawley went on to dominate and even deserve their crushing victory against the Premier League outfit.

Some fringe players proved that they won’t be seen in the Premier League for many weeks to come, with Helder Costa definitely one who doesn’t even deserve a spot on the bench.

We asked our MOT Super Fans where it all wrong on Sunday, and there were numerous different culprits picked out.

Surprisingly, Bielsa finally came in for criticism for his substitutions, and the under-23 players that came off the bench clearly underwhelmed.
