'Robbing a living', 'Atrocious' - Leeds fans rage over Christiansen decision v Hull
Leeds United fans have taken to social media to react to news that Thomas Christiansen has chosen to start Conor Shaughnessy for the club’s away clash against Hull City on Tuesday.
The Whites revealed their starting line up via their official Twitter account, confirming that the Danish manager had made two changes from the last outing against Millwall.

The suspended Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips drop out of the side from the 4-3 defeat at Elland Road, with Shaughnessy and Adam Forshaw their replacements, with the Whites looking to get their promotion bid back on track, sitting ninth, five points behind Fulham in sixth, ahead of kick off.
Of the changes, it was the inclusion of the young enforcer which had the Leeds faithful reacting on Twitter, with many suggesting he is not good enough to compete for the Whites.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Leeds’ defeat to Millwall, which came courtesy of an injury time winner for the visitors after Christiansen’s men had fought from 2-0 down to lead 3-2, saw their poor run of form continue, having gone five games without a win across all competitions.
The winless streak comes after the Whites had turned around an abysmal run earlier in the campaign, and had managed to pick up six wins in eight matches, including a 1-0 win over Tuesday’s opponents at Elland Road, the only defeat coming to runaway leaders Wolves.
