Leeds United: Bielsa must give Izzy Brown a chance to prove himself against Ipswich

Leeds United: Bielsa must give Izzy Brown a chance to prove himself against Ipswich - Leeds United

It has been yet another dramatic week to be a Leeds United supporter, hasn’t it?

The Whites created national headlines against Aston Villa last Sunday following Mateusz Klich’s controversial goal last Sunday which sparked a five-minute melee at Elland Road.

Although Marcelo Bielsa sportingly allowed opposition player Albert Adomah to walk-in an equaliser straight from kick-off, the actions of Patrick Bamford during this particular period of hysteria has created a serious problem for his manager.

After being found guilty of ‘successful deception of a match official’ by the Football Association following an altercation with Anwar El-Ghazi, the 25-year-old was handed a two-match ban on Thursday (via the BBC).

With Bamford suspended for Leeds’ clash with Ipswich Town at the weekend as well as the first-leg of their play-off semi-final, Bielsa must consider giving Izzy Brown the opportunity to prove himself.

The Chelsea loanee has only featured once for the Whites this season following a myriad of injury issues but could be in line for a return to first-team action having played on several occasions for the club’s under-23 side in recent weeks.

If Brown is indeed handed his first start for the Yorkshire-based outfit on Sunday, he could force his way into Bielsa’s plans for the play-offs by delivering a stand-out performance at Portman Road. An undeniably talented player, at his very best he can be a real menace as his outstanding versatility has seen him thrive in a number of different positions during his career.

Having failed to win any of their last three games in the Championship, Leeds are in desperate need of a spark heading into the defining period of their season and may just uncover the missing ingredient in their push for promotion by taking a risk and playing Brown.

What do you think Whites fans? Should Bielsa start Brown against Ipswich on Sunday? Or is it too much of a risk to play him giving his recent history of injury problems? Let us know below.
