Leeds United’s playing squad is under the microscope, with the majority of the club’s supporters debating just where Thomas Christiansen’s squad are going wrong after they suffered their sixth defeat in seven last night against Derby County at Elland Road.
Derby’s 2-1 victory over Leeds handed Christiansen’s side a third straight defeat at Elland Road, with the Rams following in Reading and Sheffield United’s footsteps by silencing a large Elland Road crowd.
Those three defeats have certainly soured the atmosphere inside Elland Road, and members of Christiansen’s squad are coming in for criticism following a number of under-par performances.
One player who is certainly not matching the high standards he has set since his arrival at Elland Road is Luke Ayling, with the 26-year-old struggling to find his best going forward, whilst also getting caught out of position on occasion at right-back.
Following Leeds’ defeat to Derby last night, there was plenty of criticism for Ayling on social media – Here is some reaction…
I dont understand why Ayling just ran out of his position for the first goal and makes no effort to get back. Not good enough. #lufc

Luke Ayling for the first goal just ran forward 15 yards for no reason. Did same against Reading/Sheff Utd. Cost us 3 of last 4 goals. #lufc

Where Ayling and Jansson and who's these imposters we have in their place? #lufc

Berardi's back next game. Drop Ayling. #lufc
