Many Leeds United fans on Twitter have been sharing their worries over the current fitness of Whites defender Diego Llorente.
This game against Chelsea was Llorente’s first appearance in a Leeds shirt after missing several previous fixtures through injury.
After the match had ended and Frank Lampard’s side took all three points, many Leeds fans took to Twitter to share their concerns over Llorente’s fitness.
So, what did these Leeds fans have to say about Llorente and his fitness?
Big worry are the injuries. Llorente looked like he was limping

Leeds signed the 27-year-old back in September from Spanish club Real Sociedad for a fee of £18 million.
We were poor from the off let them come on straight away to us almost showed them too much respect. Koch going off unnerved the whole defence and keeper Llorente way off match fitness a horror debut I have to say

I thought he looked very shaky today, but I don’t think he is fully fit and it will take a bit of time to get used to the Bielsa way. Apart from that he did well?

Were you impressed by Llorente's performance against Chelsea?
He looked like he’d picked up a new injury in the second half. Prevented him from tracking the run for the final goal. Any news on this?

Far from ideal to come on, after injury, against a side as gifted as Chelsea, could see a lot of rust, but also glimpses of huge composure on the ball. Thought he did very well under the circumstances.

I thought that when Pulisic scored. Llorente started limping as soon as he lost his man. He didn’t look match fit all night to be honest. Ah well.

Looking at these tweets from this group of Leeds fans, it’s clear that there they have some concerns over Llorente’s current fitness levels.
Given how he was forced to play his first game for Leeds against Chelsea away from home, this probably wasn’t the ideal situation for Llorente to make his debut for the club.
Hopefully, there can be some clarity over Llorente’s fitness and that he can be fit and available to play in Leeds’ next game.
