Patrick Bamford must start for Leeds against Norwich

Patrick Bamford must start for Leeds against Norwich

Leeds United are still unbeaten this season as they continue to assert their dominance on the Championship under Marcelo Bielsa.

The Whites are in a strong position to push for promotion having built the foundations so far this season, taking 10 points from their first four Championship fixtures. Although, the Yorkshire club couldn’t have done it without the brainpower of Marcelo Bielsa, who continues to work wonders at Elland Road.

However, Leeds United face one of their toughest challenges yet as they’ll travel to Carrow Road to face a Norwich City side that have looked dangerous at times this season. Indeed, the Canaries always put up a fight in front of their home fans and will be desperate to force an upset against the Whites, so it won’t be easy for Bielsa’s men.

Interestingly, one man who is yet to start a Championship fixture for the Whites so far this season is summer signing Patrick Bamford.

The Englishman has failed to earn a starting place in the Championship due to the prolific Kemar Roofe, who just can’t stop scoring goals. But, Bamford did get off the mark against Bolton Wanderers in the Carabao Cup, so he will be desperate to replicate this in the Championship.

Indeed, the Whites did struggle to get the best out of some of their attacking players at the Vitality Stadium, including Ezgjan Alioski. So, Bielsa should look to bring Bamford into the side for their next game, as he has shown that he can find the back of the net and always works tirelessly.
