Leeds: Fans critical of Junior Firpo vs Everton -Leeds United News

Junior Firpo made his full Leeds United debut at home to Everton on Saturday afternoon following his summer arrival from FC Barcelona.

But it was a tricky start for the Spaniard – only Kalvin Phillips in the Whites XI earned as low of a SofaScore rating as his 6.5.

Firpo was substituted off on the hour mark for Jamie Shackleton with Leeds trailing 2-1 at the time, having lost possession on 13 occasions.

Only hardcore Leeds fans can get 10/10 on our impossible Marcelo Bielsa quiz! First up... where did he begin his career?

Leeds were bidding to get off the mark for the new season after falling to an emphatic 5-1 defeat away to Manchester United on the opening day.

And they were playing in front of a sell-out crowd, the largest Elland Road attendance since they were promoted back to the Premier League in 2020.

They did welcome supporters back for the clash with West Bromwich Albion on the final day of 2020/21, but the capacity was limited to 8,000 that day.

Here’s what Leeds fans on Twitter had to say about Firpo’s display in front of a packed house…
