Leeds United may have beaten Birmingham City 1-0 on Saturday afternoon as their centenary celebrations continued, however it appears one thing Marcelo Bielsa is not prepared to do still angers sections of their fans on Twitter.
46′ One change for #LUFC over the break. Eddie Nketiah replaces Patrick Bamford up front. 0-0

Kalvin Phillips, who is also affectionately known as the ‘Yorkshire Pirlo’, was on hand to provide the Whites with all three points against the Blues as he fired home the winner in the 65th minute (per Sky Sports).
The win meant Bielsa’s side would bounce back from their disappointing 2-1 defeat to Millwall prior to the international break and would help lift them back into second place and two points behind current Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion (BBC).
Indeed, whilst the win would have further added to the club’s festivities regarding their 100-year existence, a number of supporters continued to be angered and disappointed with the decision not to play Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah together.
The former of the duo started the match for Leeds, however he was substituted at half-time and replaced by the Arsenal loanee to try and change things and help push the Elland Road outfit on.
A number of supporters reaffirmed their desires to see Bielsa use the pair together and questioned just why he would seem to be against the idea.
Here are just some of their reactions…
Would love him to be brave enough to try both together!

If Bielsa is such a genius why can’t we play 2 up top?

I think we can play both Bamford and Eddie with Bamford dropping a bit deeper.
