Leeds United fans have been reacting to a team news update from manager Marcelo Bielsa ahead of their game against Hull City this evening.
The Argentine revealed that Liam Cooper is out of the clash with a calf injury; meanwhile, Kalvin Phillips returns to the group (via Adam Pope).
Is Marcelo Bielsa the best coach in the Championship
Phillips missed the 2-0 victory of Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town last weekend after he earned his fifth yellow card of the season against Middlesbrough.
Cooper is out after he suffered a calf injury that also saw him miss the win over their northern rivals on Saturday.
Fans had varying reactions to the news ahead of the clash against the East Yorkshire side as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road outfit, with one supporter even claiming that Bielsa is starting to sound like former boss Garry Monk due to the use of the word ‘group’…
Surely a Backup Centre half is needed in January, Coops picking up a lot of injuries.

Current backups are doing just fine. Conceding once every 180min

Berardi was different class saturday, very underrated on the ball and reads the game better than anybody in our side besides probably Pablo. Shame he’s a liability when he’s needed the most as he’s actually a very capable footballer.
