Leeds United: Many fans demand that Marcelo Bielsa starts Eddie Nketiah ahead of Patrick Bamford

Marcelo Bielsa has given his press conference ahead of Leeds United’s match against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

While there were various topics that ‘El Loco’ spoke about, there was one main thing that many Leeds fans were interested in hearing about:

That question was whether Bielsa would be starting Patrick Bamford or Eddie Nketiah for the Yorkshire derby, with the hope being that the Argentinian would pick the latter.

20-year-old Nketiah has not started a single Championship game this season, making nine substitute appearances, but has still managed to score three goals from his 220 minutes on the pitch, as per WhoScored, while he has also got two goals in as many Carabao Cup starts.

In comparison, Bamford has started 13 Championship games, playing a total of 998 minutes, from which he has got four goals and one assist.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the press conference, including posts from decisive Leeds fans, can be seen below:
