A lot of Leeds United fans have replied to a post from Phil Hay as he wondered how much Jack Butland hates Elland Road.

Nice easy one to start off with, from which club did Leeds sign Hernandez?

The Athletic reporter tweeted about the Stoke City goalkeeper during Leeds’ 5-0 thrashing of the Potters.

Hay then revealed in another tweet that in 10 appearances at Elland Road, Butland has conceded 24 goals since his loan spell with the Whites in 2014.

This tweet drew the attention of many Leeds fans, who were quick to have a go at Butland.

Do you think Butland hates Elland Road?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 27-year-old, who is valued at £5.85m by Transfermarkt, moved to Elland Road from Stoke in 2014 on loan and featured in some poor games for the Whites, including losing 5-1 to Bolton Wanderers and 4-2 to Reading.

Even upon leaving Elland Road, it seems as if nothing has improved for the Stoke goalkeeper, and on Thursday night, his side were thrashed by a rampant Leeds side.

The truth is it could have been more as Butland faced 11 shots on target, so he actually made a few saves to keep the score down.

Some Whites fans recognised this, and praised the nine-cap England international.

The result was huge for Leeds as it moved them six points clear of third place with just four games left to play, so they are nearly there in terms of their bid to achieve promotion.

For Stoke, however, it was a crushing blow and leaves them just a point clear of the relegation zone.

One crumb of comfort for Butland may be that if Leeds seal promotion to the Premier League, he might not have to play at Elland Road for some time.
