Leeds United put in their worst performance at the weekend as Marcelo Bielsa’s side were completely outplayed by Darren Moore’s rampant West Brom.
Following a second-half onslaught, Leeds lost 4-1 with Pablo Hernandez managing to get a consolation goal at the end of the game.
With Luke Ayling out injured, Bielsa had to resort to playing Stuart Dallas at right-back and in truth, the Northern Ireland international was terrible against West Brom and was a constant liability in defence.
Leeds have been unfortunate with injuries of late. Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez and Barry Douglas have all only just returned but in what will come as more bad news for Leeds United fans, according to Macedonian newspaper Ekipa, Gjanni Alioski was absent from Macedonia’s training sessions on Monday.
The Macedonian has been an ever-present in Bielsa’s side this season and has played 16 games for the club while scoring three goals and grabbing three assists.
At times he may receive criticism from the fans for his lack of goals and impact on games but his energy down the wing is essential to the side. Moreover, he is one of the few players in the Leeds squad that can actually play on the lefthand side.
Due to the injuries of late, Bielsa has had to resort to using academy players in the squad. Overall, Leeds have a fairly small squad and if Alioski has picked up an injury, Bielsa must dip into the transfer market in January.
What do you think Leeds fans?
