Leeds left it late last night. Eddie Nketiah, off the bench, grabbed the only goal of the game against Brentford, ruining Pontus Jansson’s first trip back to Elland Road by giving the home side a 1-0 win, and Marcelo Bielsa had an interesting thought after the game.
Bielsa was saying tonight that he'll need to consider the option of playing two up front. Thinks he can fit Nketiah and Bamford into the same team depending on the opposition.

Phil Hay gave the fans plenty to be excited about when he gave them a quote from Marcelo Bielsa, who said he’s considering the idea of playing two up front.
That would mean slotting both Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah into the same starting eleven, and when Tyler Roberts is back the young Welshman can also play his part, and it’s an idea that, as you will see below, is very much an exciting prospect for the fans.

Would like this. If he can get them playing well togeher they’re both potent in different ways.

The Whites, quite clearly, are full of excitement to see Bielsa go it in the Championship with two strikers, and it’s now a waiting game to see it in action.
