Many Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Marcelo Bielsa’s starting line-up against Brighton in the Premier League.

Seeking a victory that could see them rise to 14th in the league, Marcelo Bielsa’s side lost 2-1 against Tottenham Hotspur in their last league outing, but will now be looking to claim an invaluable three points against the Seagulls this afternoon as they seek to really kickstart their campaign.

However, Bielsa has made the decision to omit Pascal Struijk from his starting XI against Graham Potter’s side at the Amex Stadium this evening in the Premier League.

And, after hearing about Bielsa’s starting line-up, many Leeds fans took to Twitter to discuss the news.

What did Leeds fans have to say about it?

“Struijk doesn’t deserve to be dropped man”


“How he treats Struijk genuinely baffles me”


“Struijk should be starting”


Strujik been done dirty there but we move, huge game this”


“Surprised no Struijk! Due a 90 min performance, cmon Leeds”

“Very harsh on Pascal then”


“Gelhardt and Struijk dropped is criminal”


“Struijk is 2x the centre back Cooper is already, I know he’s the captain but come on marcelo”


Although Leeds have lost eight of their last nine meetings against Brighton in all competitions, including both Premier League games during the 2020/21 campaign, Bielsa’s side will be hoping to claim an invaluable three points this evening.
