Patrick Bamford is set to start ahead of Eddie Nketiah for Leeds United again.

Leeds United fans on Twitter are perplexed by Marcelo Bielsa's refusal to start Eddie Nketiah.

Speaking during a pre-match press conference ahead of tonight's trip to Preston, the Whites boss confirmed that he'd be naming an unchanged XI from the side that beat Birmingham.

That means that Nketiah will be back on the Leeds bench, a week after he revealed his unhappiness over playing a bit-part role at Elland Road.

Bamford hasn't scored in close to two months and the Elland Road faithful are desperate to see the Arsenal loanee start ahead of him up front.

 

Here's how some fans reacted to Phil Hay's tweet about the unchanged side.

Nketiah is already being linked with a return to Arsenal in January and the 20-year-old hitman might just favour a return to North London if he isn't playing regularly.

Bamford, as mentioned, is going through a horrendous dry spell in front of goal and if the Leeds boss doesn't rotate soon and give Nketiah a proper chance, it could upset the youngster even more.
