Leeds fans react on Twitter to starting XI v Huddersfield
By Alex Taylor
Leeds have named their team to face Huddersfield at Elland Road on Saturday – and fans have taken to Twitter to give their verdict on the line-up.
Gary Monk has made three changes to the team that lost 3-1 to Nottingham Forest in late August in a bid to secure Leeds’ second win of their Championship campaign.
Pontus Jansson, Kalvin Phillips and Alex Mowatt replace Liam Cooper, Ronaldo Vieira and Pablo Hernandez in the starting XI.
The Whites have struggled after picking up just four points from their first five domestic matches this season.

Some supporters were glad to see Eunan O’Kane omitted while others praised the line-up, saying it contained the best available back-four.

@APOPEY Why doesn’t Roofe start games? And Hernandez on the bench as well? It’s as if scoring goals isn’t an issue for us

Leeds currently lie 21st in the Championship table and will be hoping for a change of fortunes against David Wagner’s side.
The Yorkshire outfit will need to start picking up three points if they are to return to the England’s top-flight next season.
