Championship

Bielsa must turn to Clarke and Klich today

Bielsa must turn to Clarke and Klich today

Leeds United have defied expectations in the current campaign as they continue to make supporters dream, with Premier League football not too far away. 

It didn’t take Marcelo Bielsa long to settle down to life in England, as his Leeds United side are currently on course for promotion during his first season in charge.

Of course, the Whites will be desperate to give fans a late Christmas present by securing all three points, but they face a stern test in their next Championship fixtures as they’ll welcome Hull City to Elland Road. Nigel Adkins’ side have fallen off the pace recently, but an upset could be on the cards if the Whites don’t turn up.

With that in mind, Bielsa will get Elland Road rocking if this talented DUO feature today…

JACK CLARKE

Jack Clarke has made all the headlines since being introduced to first-team football by Marcelo Bielsa, having put in a number of promising performances in the Championship this season. And, he managed to find the back of the net against Aston Villa last time out, so he will be full of confidence.

Of course, supporters have been quick to criticise Ezgjan Alioski for his performances throughout the current campaign, so gifting the youngster a place in the starting lineup would definitely be a pleasing sight.

The Tigers have conceded a lot of goals in recent times, so Clarke’s pace and skill could cause them all sorts of problems at Elland Road.

MATEUSZ KLICH

It looked as if Mateusz Klich’s Leeds United career was over prior to the start of the current campaign, but he has gone from zero to hero since Bielsa took over at the club. The Poland international has been the source of all things brilliant in attacking areas, with a number of goals and assists to his name.

Therefore, he will be looking to assert his authority on proceedings by getting the better of Hull’s Kevin Stewart, with a positive result coming Leeds’ way if Klich manages to fire.
