Leeds United fans were pleased with Thomas Christiansen opting to play Pawel Cibicki against Norwich City at Elland Road on Saturday.

Cibicki has made only one appearance in the Championship this season, coming on as a substitute in Leeds’ last game against Queens Park Rangers.

The striker starts in place of the injured Caleb Ekuban, which was the only change from the team that started the last game.

One fan said that fans were about to witness a masterclass by the player, with most just hoping he plays like he did against QPR.

Here are the best reactions to Cibicki starting against the Canaries from confident Leeds fans:

Leeds United will be hoping to keep clean sheet at home for the first time in seven games, but Norwich have only failed to score once in their last six league games.

The Whites previously kept 14 clean sheets in 18 games at home between December 2016 and September 2017.

The Whites go into the game with Norwich City seventh in the table, four points off the play-off positions.

Norwich City have six points less than Leeds, sitting 16th with 27 points.

The two sides met three times last season, with Leeds getting the better of the side’s league meetings.

The Whites won 3-2 at Carrow Road but were held to a 3-3 draw at Elland Road in April, despite The Canaries finishing the game with 10 men.

The non-league meeting was in the League Cup and went all the way to penalties following a 2-2 draw, Leeds won 3-2 on penalties.

Norwich have only managed to win one of their last eight games at Elland Road and that was a 2-0 win 2015.
