'He has lost his mind', 'Donkey' – Leeds fans fume at one Christiansen starter v Millwall
Leeds fans have reacted to Thomas Christiansen’s line-up for the Championship game against Millwall on Saturday afternoon, and aren’t happy that Pierre-Michel Lasogga is starting.
Christiansen had confirmed in his press conference on Friday that new summer signing Adam Forshaw wouldn’t make the team as he was suffering with a small injury problem.
Caleb Ekuban was the only other absentee, with Samu Saiz still suspended for his spitting incident in the FA Cup tie v Newport and Luke Ayling out for the season with a serious injury.
The line-up was announced on the official Leeds Twitter page ahead of the 3pm kick-off.

After a good start for Leeds, the summer signing hasn’t scored since the end of October – and fans are losing patience.
Lots of fans said it was his last chance tonight, while others just despaired at him starting.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Leeds fans ahead of the 3pm kick-off:
