Supporters of Leeds United have ripped into Mateusz Klich for spurring a chance in the first half against Tottenham Hotspur.

During the current round of Premier League fixtures, the Whites travelled to The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to take on Jose Mourinho’s Spurs (per Premier League).

In the first half of the clash, with the scores at 0-0, an opportunity fell to Polish midfielder, Klich, and he wasted the chance to put his side ahead.

With 11 minutes on the clock, Ezgjan Alioski made his way down the left-hand side of the field before finding Jack Harrison, his cutback was then blocked by Matt Doherty and the ball fell to Klich (per BBC).

Instead of slotting beyond Hugo Lloris in Spurs’ goal, the midfielder hammered his shot over the bar.

Following the missed chance, lots of Leeds fans took to social media to slate the Polish international for the missed opportunity against Tottenham.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

Prior to the game with the north London club, Klich was an injury doubt for the Whites after he was replaced during the game against West Bromwich Albion (per Leeds Live).

However, the 30-year-old midfielder was fit enough to start against Spurs.

Have you been disappointed with Klich so far against Spurs?

No, he's been decent

Prior to the game with Spurs, the Polish midfielder had made 16 appearances in the Premier League for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, having not missed a single game (per Transfermarkt).

Over his outings in the top flight for the Yorkshire club prior to the Tottenham game, the 30-year-old bagged a respectable tally of two goals and five assists.
