Leeds fans react on Twitter after O'Kane recalled against Norwich
By Will Butcher
Leeds fans are relieved on Twitter to see Eunan O’Kane finally start for the first time in almost two months under manager Garry Monk.
The five-time Ireland international last started in the 3-1 win away from home against Birmingham City on March 3, but now comes in to replace academy product Kalvin Phillips.
His inclusion is one of three changes made by Monk, with Stuart Dallas and Gaetano Berardi also starting from the off in place of Charlie Taylor and Souleymane Doukara on the left.
Leeds posted the starting eleven on their official Twitter account.

O’Kane makes his 25th appearances in all competitions as a Leeds player after joining in the summer from Premier League outfit Bournemouth, alongside captain Liam Bridcutt.

With three points separating Leeds from sixth placed Fulham, Monk will be hoping his side can make it three wins from three against Norwich after triumphs in the league and the EFL Cup.
