‘No, he was awful on Friday’, ‘Quite simply, no’ – Should Christiansen start this Leeds player tomorrow?



Leeds United play host to Derby County at Elland Road tomorrow evening, and they’ll be desperate for three points.

The Whites were downed 2-1 by Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United last Friday night, and Christiansen will be looking for a response tomorrow.

One Leeds player who is dividing opinion in recent weeks is winger Ezgjan Alioski.

The Macedonian star was somewhat underwhelming against the Blades, and his first-team spot is not guaranteed.

Should Christiansen start him tomorrow night against the Rams?

We take a look….

Alfie Burns

Thomas Christiansen badly needs to change his shape against Derby this Tuesday, and I would imagine Alioski would be one attacking player sacrificed to accommodate that change.

The Macedonian international is not reproducing his early season form in the Championship, but then again, nobody at Elland Road is.

Big changes are needed at Elland Road if Leeds are to put re-establish themselves in the top-six, and Alioski is likely to be one of a number of players facing the axe against Derby.

George Dagless

Quite simply, no.

Alioski is a likeable player with his pace and trickery but you need more than that to be a success at a club like Leeds and in recent weeks he has been shown up.

He clearly needs to be more physical and that will come but in the meantime Leeds should be looking at a Stuart Dallas type option ahead of a very big game against Derby.

Chris Gallagher

No, he was awful on Friday.

He was selfish with aspects of his play and barely made a contribution of note. Pablo Hernandez replaced him and you would expect the Spaniard to start ahead of him tomorrow.

Alioski needs time to settle given he is in a new league and country and he clearly has talent, but he is also infuriating at times for Whites fans.
