Leeds United: Fans call for Eddie Nketiah starting place after Preston North End display

Starting places have been rare for the Arsenal loanee so far, but he made his case in Leeds United’s 1-1 draw with Preston North End on Tuesday night. 

Eddie Nketiah or Patrick Bamford?

Bamford

The 20-year-old has made all of his league appearances for United off the bench, scoring three goals, as per WhoScored.com – with the latest being a vital equaliser in the dying minutes at Deepdale.

Nketiah, who has been behind striker Patrick Bamford in the pecking order so far this season, appeared to rescue Leeds from defeat with an influential display.

Coming on just over ten minutes before the full-time whistle, with his side trailing 1-0, the Englishman impressed for Marcelo Bielsa’s team – providing a real threat on the break and attracting the free-kick which eventually led to him scoring the looping header which brought the game level.

As a result, Lilywhites supporters have been calling for the youngster to start – either with Bamford or replacing him – with his quality evident for all to see.
