Three out-of-favour Leeds stars Rosler must bring back into the fold

The Leeds boss has promised a change or two. Here's three he could try with little to lose...

Casper Sloth

Many have been puzzled as to why Casper Sloth has been given so few chances this season at Leeds United but a breath of fresh air may be just what is needed - and just what is provided by selecting him.

The 23-year-old has underwhelmed on several occasions for Leeds but, right now, the Whites are underwhelming as a unit, meaning there's no harm in bringing a different midfielder into the fold.

United aren't creating anything from the middle of the park and owner Massimo Cellino has recently spoken highly of the Dane, insisting he plans to keep him. Why not use him, then?

Lee Erwin

Leeds boss Uwe Rosler has recently spoken of the need to tamper expectations where the young forward is concerned but, at the end of the day, United did buy him this summer and letting him waste away in the meantime won't help anyone.

Erwin might not be considered ready for the first team but the Whites need fresh options going forward. Much like in midfield, nothing is being created in the final third. Dele Alli wasn't expected to make the first team for Tottenham but look at him now. All Erwin needs is a chance. If he doesn't perform, it won't be any worse than what Leeds are producing at the moment, anyway.

Kalvin Phillips

The 19-year-old's season at Elland Road has been a puzzling one. He was playing well and his reward was the drop.

Lewis Cook returned to Leeds' midfield and it looks as though Phillips will struggle for a place all season long, with the likes of Tommaso Bianchi also set to return from injury at some point.

But the fact he is so young shouldn't stop Rosler from picking him. Phillips has performed impressively and shown a creativity and fearlessness that, again, has been missing of late at Leeds.
