Marcelo Bielsa reveals he will not make changes for Sheff Wed encounter

Marcelo Bielsa reveals he will not make changes for Sheff Wed encounter

Leeds United will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat against Birmingham City on Friday night when they meet Sheffield Wednesday in a Yorkshire derby.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side suffered their first loss of the season against former boss Garry Monk at the weekend and he will be determined to see his side rectify their poor performance.

Leeds currently sit top of the Championship table, by virtue of goal difference, and will be looking to create a gap between themselves and Middlesbrough.

However, according to Phil Hay, it appears that the manager is ready to give the same players that played against the Blues a chance to make things right on Friday night.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist has revealed on Twitter that Bielsa has confirmed that he will not be making any changes to his squad for the game against the Owls.

The Verdict:

The Argentine admitted he made mistakes during the game against Birmingham and had accepted responsibility, although it appears as though he is ready to keep the faith with the team he selected.

There would have been some expectation that Bielsa would have made changes to his side for the Yorkshire derby with the Owls, especially following the defeat.

The Argentine’s early reveal could go against them, as Jos Luhukay and Wednesday will now be able to spend a day or two preparing for the game with the opposition starting XI already being known and possibly be used as an advantage.
