Leeds fans have their say on Ewood Park team selection

Marcelo Bielsa’s decision to have a small squad at Elland Road and call upon the youngsters in the academy if needed has been successful so far, although with a number of key players out injured it easily could have backfired. Now, though, the club has ridden the storm and with a host of players returning, the fans have been responding to this article in The YEP over who they want to see.

With Kemar Roofe and Gaetano Berardi both definitely looking like being available for The Whites trip to Ewood Park, a lot of fans have been discussing whether or not the two will be straight back in the starting eleven. Seeing as Luke Ayling has a one-game ban it looks like Berardi will fit in at right-back, but with Tyler Roberts playing well and scoring goals it will be a tough call for Bielsa to decide who starts out of him and the returning Roofe.

Then, aside from Roofe and Berardi, you’ve got the issue of Pablo Hernandez. The Spaniard is arguably Leeds best player and when fit and firing he simply has to play, but whether Bielsa will risk him for Saturday is another matter. Pontus Jansson and Barry Douglas are also doubts, Douglas is slightly behind with his injury concerns whilst Jansson is waiting on his wife to give birth, as well as waiting on hearing back from The FA over a potential ban or fine after his comments about referee Jeremy Simpson following the Brentford clash.

The Whites are buzzing for the return of club football and will hope that their returning stars can inspire them to all three points against a resilient Blackburn side.
