Leeds United fans are not exactly best pleased with Marcelo Bielsa’s suggestion that Ben White will play in midfield for their match against Huddersfield Town tomorrow.

White has been exceptional since joining Leeds on loan, with his poise in possession catching the eye.

With Kalvin Phillips not available for selection against Huddersfield, it seems that White will be given the nod tomorrow.

 

“For a long time we've been working with White in this position,” Bielsa said to the Yorkshire Evening Post. “He is going to play in that role.

“Of course it's a new position for him. He has the skills to play there but he's not used to it.

“We've been working with White for a long time.”

Leeds fans are less convinced by Bielsa’s plan than the Argentine boss seems to be.

There is a feeling among many Whites supporters that White should be left in defence, where he has excelled, with another player coming in to replace Phillips in the starting line-up.

Leeds will hope that the alteration in their midfield does not cost them against Huddersfield, as they have been in fine form of late.

Bielsa’s men have won their last five matches on the bounce to really strengthen their grip on an automatic promotion spot.
