Leeds United advanced to the second round of the Carabao Cup last night after defeating League Two side Salford City 3-0.
After Eddie Nketiah opened his account for the Whites in the first-half at Moor Lane, Gaetano Berardi and Mateusz Klich added goals during the second period to secure a comfortable victory for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Leeds will now face fellow Championship side Stoke City on Tuesday 27th August at Elland Road, just three days after the two sides meet in the league.
Given that the Whites failed to make it past the second-round of the Carabao Cup last season, they will unquestionably be determined to right their wrongs in a competition which they last won in 1968 under the guidance of Don Revie.
Having seen their side miss out on mouthwatering match-ups with the likes of Newcastle United and Leicester City, plenty of Leeds supporters took to Twitter to react to the news that the club will be playing Stoke.
Here are some of the best responses from the Elland Road faithful…
Good it’s at home. But a rubbish tie.

Perfect draw if you ask me. Decent opposition at home for our youth and fringe players.

Play the 2nd team again (that is better than the 1st team apart from Cooper) if we go out no embarrassment and carry on with the league!

This is time to make our exit I think. Let us leave the extra games to other championship teams. Imo squads too thin to split attentions
