Leeds fans have enjoyed a strong start to the season. Wins away at Bristol City in the Championship and Salford City in the Carabao Cup either side of a draw at home to Nottingham Forest have made for a good start, and up next is Wigan Athletic away.
Latest team news from Bielsa – says he can’t tell us because a supporter was complaining to him a couple of days ago about him giving away his line-up. “But between you and me, it’s going to be the same team.”

For that game, Marcelo Bielsa has been talking in his press conference about the lineup that he’s going to throw out to take on Paul Cook’s side, and Phil Hay, who was at the press conference, has revealed that Bielsa plans to use the same lineup that he did against Forest.
That means that both Helder Costa and Eddie Nketiah will be either on the bench or out of the matchday squad, seeing as neither of them started against Forest, although as you will see in the tweets included below, the fans are keen to see the pair used against Wigan.
You can read the Whites’ verdict on the team news here:
For me we need to be starting Costa and Nketiah….we were much better when they were on the pitch

Nketiah and costa unreal options to have off of the bench but sooner rather than later they should start.

Only time will tell if the Leeds fans are right to be frustrated with Nketiah and Costa being benched.
