Leeds United picked up a hard-earned point at Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon in the early kick-off.
A well contested game saw the Yorkshire rivals walk away with a share of the spoils. Both sides had their chances to win the game but neither side could find a way past goalkeepers Westwood and Casilla.
There was plenty to like about the performance of Leeds, including the second-half introduction of Eddie Nketiah, who once again showed some neat touches in and around the Owls’ 18-yard box.
However, one of the players who wasn’t at the top of his game was midfielder Matheusz Klich, who looked somewhat off the form he showed last term in becoming a key man under Marcelo Bielsa.
His performance didn’t go unnoticed by the Leeds fans either, as a whole host of them took to Twitter following the game to voice their concerns over the form of Klich.
We at FLW were on hand to check out just what the consensus was around the Polish midfielder…
We’re desperately lacking a number 10. Klich has been invisible for months and the wingers are struggling. Everyone else is trying. #lufc

What has happened to Klich? Fair play to him, he’ll still run all day, but where has his composure on the ball gone? #LUFC

Kiko and defence were all superb. The midfield just never got hold of it. Phillips' poorest game for some time, and Klich isn't offering enough lately. Strikers need more help. #lufc

Give klich a rest.
Play Roberts at no 10
Job done. #lufc

Klich was a big disappointment to me today, went completely missing in the second half. Too many poor passes in the final third. Costa looked really bright first half but also dropped off. #lufc pic.twitter.com/zy29ot3HdO

At this point it might be worth giving Klich a rest and start Bamford and Nketiah together.
Nketiah gives us genuine quality, pace and finishing upfront.
