Plenty of Leeds United fans have taken to social media to react to Marcelo Bielsa’s team selection for the EFL Cup clash with Salford City.
Bielsa has named a strong attacking line-up for the first-round tie at Moor Lane, with Eddie Nketiah set to make his debut for Leeds after joining on loan from Arsenal on transfer deadline day.
Helder Costa makes his first start for the Whites, after the Portuguese winger joined Leeds from Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this summer.
Jack Clarke will also make his first appearance for Leeds since resigning for the club on loan from Tottenham, while Gaetano Berardi and Jamie Shackleton are both also set to make their first appearances of the season.
Bielsa also decided to name a strong bench, featuring the likes of Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison.
