Leeds United: Fans call for Eddie Nketiah and Patrick Bamford to start together

With a crucial run of games coming up for Leeds United, supporters have called for the manager to start both Eddie Nketiah and Patrick Bamford in their bid for promotion.

Marcelo Bielsa has long been picking and choosing which forward to start, with Arsenal loanee Nketiah replacing Bamford at half-time in their most recent outing.

The Lilywhites beat Birmingham City 1-0 in their landmark centenary game at the weekend, a match where Leeds-born fan favourite Kalvin Phillips fittingly scored the winner.

After Bielsa’s tactical decision to swap the two forwards, the manager spoke following the game on how the two compared.

Bamford has scored four goals in 12 Championship appearances this season, while Nketiah has found the net twice in the league coming off the bench so far – as per WhoScored.

Despite this, fans have continued to debate who should start over the other, with some suggesting both should start – presenting the option of starting the two forwards together up front – insisting that they could play well off each other:
