Ezgjan Alioski was again given the nod to start for Leeds United in their 2-1 defeat to Derby County on Tuesday night – and the majority of fans took to Twitter to criticise his display.
Alioski, 25, was named in the starting XI for the 13th time in Leeds’ 15 league fixtures this season despite his poor recent form.
The Macedonia international played 84 minutes at Elland Road before being substituted in favour of Pablo Hernandez as he once again failed to complete a match.
Derby leapfrogged Leeds in the Championship team as they condemned the home side to their fifth league defeat in six matches, and sixth loss in seven in all competitions.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga had given United the lead after seven minutes with a low shot just inside the near post, but Sam Winnall scored two second-half goals to give in-form Derby a comeback win.
On what was another emphatic defeat for Leeds against a promotion rival, supporters pointed out where Alioski went wrong on social media.

Agree with that. Alioski and Weidwald have been dreadful signings. Klich doesn’t look good either.

Something has gone desperately wrong. Alioski, Ayling, Jansson, O’Kane just not playing like they were. Can’t just be fitness? #lufc

Too many players out of form. Alioski, Roofe, Jansson, Ayling … O’Kane is knackered! Need depth urgently, oh wait we had all summer! #lufc

I just don’t see what Alioski brings to the team…there I’ve said it #lufc

Beginning to wonder if orta is insisting his signings play. Alioski/Grot/Lasogga all always involved regardless of performances. #lufc
