Leeds United face a big test this evening as they head to the King Power Stadium trying to beat a Leicester City side in order to progress in the EFL Cup.
In recent weeks, Leeds’ form has been poor and they may have been dreading this clash but, after a fine win over Bristol City at the weekend, the Whites should be more confident. Indeed, there is bound to be significant line-up changes from both sides and so it should be quite the even game between the pair.
One change that Leeds will have to make, though, is at left-back with Gaetano Berardi being sent-off for a head-butt against the Robins during the 3-0 win. He’s set to start his suspension tonight, then, but one man who looks to be getting his red overturned from the game is Matty Taylor of Bristol City – as per Phil Hay:
The FA has overturned the red card shown to Matty Taylor on Saturday. Wrongful dimissal appeal upheld, 3-game ban withdrawn.

Naturally, then, fans have reacted to this and so here is the best of what has been said:
I was confused as to why Taylor reacted how he did, the initial foul was hardly an awful one.

He started squaring up to berardi is that not agressive?

Disgraceful lets award him an Oscar as well while we are at it.

Should get a three game ban for cheating. Both went in with heads he just decided to go down like he'd been shot
