Fans of Leeds United have taken to Twitter in order to criticise the performance of Leeds left-back, Ezgjan Alioski, in the club’s fixture against Crystal Palace on Monday evening.
So far this season, Alioski has found himself a fairly regular part of Marcelo Bielsa’s side, featuring in 19 of the club’s 21 Premier League fixtures, over which the versatile defender has scored two goals and averaged a slightly disappointing WhoScored match rating of 6.59 – ranking him as the club’s ninth-worst performer in the top flight, prior to the Crystal Palace fixture.
Despite this, Bielsa decided to stick with the £3.6 million-rated 28-year-old for the visit of the Eagles, however, after losing possession no less than 15 times, as well as being dribbled past three times and winning just one aerial duel – with his SofaScore match rating of 6.7 ranking him as the joint-worst performer in the match – fans of Leeds appeared far from happy with the performance of the left-back, with many taking to Twitter to make their feelings known.
Is Alioski good enough for Leeds?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to the performance of Ezgjan Alioski against Crystal Palace?
“Why do we think Alioski is worth hanging on to?”
“Alioski has got to be replaced”
“Alioski needs to come off”
“Alioski is probably the only one out this 11 who you would replace at the mo”
“Please get Alioski off he is going to cost us a goal.”
“Alioski proper winds me up”
“Sorry Alioski is a liability”
“What’s Alioski playing at there?”
“Sorry but Alioski isn’t any where near the standard required for this league. This has been so easy btw Palace are absolutely awful”
All in all, it would appear that many of these Leeds United fans were far from happy with the performance of Alioski, with some claiming the defender winds them up to watch, while others stated they felt it was time to move the 28-year-old on.
