Leeds United are preparing for a reunion with Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor in the League Cup on Tuesday night – and fans have taken to Twitter to share their feelings on the Elland Road old boys.
Left-back Taylor joined Burnley in July for a reported £7million compensation fee and striker Wood made the same journey a month later for £15million.
Taylor is yet to make a league appearance for Sean Dyche’s side, while Wood has already established himself as a key man with two crucial goals from three matches.
The defender is expected to be named in the starting XI, while the forward could be rested with a view to saving him for Saturday’s clash against Huddersfield.
Leeds fans took to social media to give their verdicts on what receptions the will give the pair, while others discussed how to prevent Wood continuing his hot scoring streak.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Wood and Taylor, who are ya ? #lufc

Reckon Burnley will be similar to Millwall. Need Ayling & Berardi to keep Taylor & the wingers quiet & stop them lumping balls at Wood #lufc

Hope people don’t boo Chris Wood tonight. He wanted to play Premier League football and you can’t grudge against him for that #lufc

Wood, 25, quit the Championship club last month to make a £15million move to Premier League outfit Burnley after topping the league charts last season and scoring 30 goals in all competitions.
But he was far from a fans favourite during his debut campaign at Leeds after joining from Leicester in the summer of 2015.
He scored 13 goals in 37 appearances in 2015-16, with all of his strikes coming in the Premier League, but acutely remembers being a target of the terrace jeers.
“I remember my first season at Leeds I was booed for three or four months of the season, I had to overcome that,” Wood said, as quoted by the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
Both clubs are expected to ring the changes for the Turf Moor clash after their weekend league fixtures.
