Leeds United fans on Twitter have been calling for Whites midfielder Jamie Shackleton to start in the Yorkshire club’s upcoming Premier League match against Arsenal.  

This comes after Leeds United Live shared a post on their page that contained an article from Leeds Live regarding the game against the north London club and the potential starting XI Marcelo Bielsa could put out for the match.

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

In the caption to the post, the Leeds Twitter page asked their followers who they would prefer to see start against Arsenal out of Shackleton or Tyler Roberts.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Leeds fans who were quick to share their responses to this question.

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say regarding who they would like to see start against Arsenal out of Shackleton or Roberts?

“Roberts had enough chances Shack for me” 


“Gotta be Shack, I don’t care what anyone says, Tyro is a passenger and we cant carry a passenger” 


“Shacks!! More energy and move Dallas into phillips role!!” 


“Shack all day for me , he is part of future Leeds Class”


“Shackleton all day long”


“Shackleton any time.” 


“Shackleton for me”


“Shack for me”


As a product of Leeds’ youth academy, Shackleton made his senior debut for the club back in August . Since then, the 21-year-old gem, who is currently valued at £2.07 million, has made 60 appearances for Leeds in which he has managed to score two goals and provide two assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

So far this season, Shackleton has made 10 appearances for Leeds in the Premier League but has only started one of them (per WhoScored).

Who would you like to see start against Arsenal?
