“Happy with that”, “We’ve won” – Leeds fans rejoice after out-of-form player is dropped

Published

Leeds United manager Thomas Christiansen has dropped goalkeeper Andy Lonergan after a series of errors.

Leeds make the short trip across Yorkshire today to take on Barnsley at Oakwell and Felix Wiedwald has been reinstated as the number one stopper.

Wiedwald was dropped earlier in the season after some poor performances proved costly but has earned his place back following some disastrous displays from Lonergan.

The 34-year-old has made some high profile errors leading to goals and Christiansen has now had enough.

The Leeds team to play Barnsley has Wiedwald in goal, protected by a back four of Luke Ayling, Pontus Jansson, Liam Cooper and Gaetano Berardi.

In midfield, Kalvin Phillips partners Eunan O’Kane while Samu Saiz, Pablo Hernandez and Ezgjan Alioski are further forward.

Caleb Ekuban starts up top.

Leeds fans seemed delighted that Lonergan was axed from the starting line-up and they took to Twitter to celebrate.

Here are some of the best tweets after the official line-up was announced.
