Leeds United will face Preston North End in the Championship clash on Tuesday night at Deepdale Stadium.
The Whites returned to winning ways last weekend after they won 1-0 against Birmingham City.
The Yorkshire outfit are one of the favourites for promotion to the Premier League this season, but they are likely to face tough competition from Preston who are just two points behind Leeds.
Ahead of the match, Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed in the press conference that he will field an unchanged starting line-up against Preston.
Phil Hay of the Athletic has tweeted that Pablo Hernandez is unlikely to be available this week due to a fresh injury. Previously, he suffered a calf injury and now faces time on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.
Many Leeds fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction. Some feel that Bielsa is too rigid with his system, and thus making life difficult for Eddie Nketiah to make an impact.
There are others who are concerned with Hernandez’s injury, while some fans feel that Helder Costa must seize these opportunities as he could turn into an unplayable player.
STOP TELLING THE OPPOSITION OUR TEAM

I think there is more chance of hell freezing over than the likelihood of Bielsa changing his team selection …..(Notwithstanding injuries of course😂) #LUFC

Not sounding good about Pablo as given his age and if it hamstring then he’s out for a while, bloody hell we need him badly it has to be said, the engine room not functioning properly without his craft it has to be said 🙁

Gives us an extra drive from midfield

What has to happen for Eddie to start? 1/4 of season gone now and he’s started 0 games in the league. Bamford is keeping him out of the team despite scoring only 4 goals in 3 of the 12 games he’s started. Can’t blame Eddie for leaving in January given the circumstances.

Slowly under the radar that Costa is starting more and more.. confident he will become unplayable at some point 🙌🏼 #lufc

To be honest, Costa is yet to make an impact for Leeds this season. The 25-year-old has made four starts in the Championship, while further eight appearances have come from the bench.
The Portuguese winger is yet to score in the league and has provided just one assist so far.
