Leeds fans desperate to see Rodrigo start against Chelsea in Premier League

Leeds United travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday night to face Chelsea in the Premier League – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter have stated in the build-up they want to see Rodrigo recalled to the starting XI.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side returning to winning ways in their last match with an impressive 1-0 victory away to Everton, but are now preparing for an even tougher test on paper against an in-form Chelsea team that many consider to be genuine title contenders.

Despite being a newly-promoted side, the Yorkshire giants have shown no fear in any of their opening 10 league matches and are likely to be aggressive in their approach on their trip to London.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media have started they want summer signing Rodrigo back in the side against Chelsea.

The 29-year-old attacker hasn’t started a game since October’s trip to Aston Villa, but is the club’s record signing and has been given two late substitute appearances recently after returning from a period of isolation.

He is a skilful left-footer that scored last season for Valencia in a Champions League group stage match against Chelsea and he’s only shown in glimpses so far during his Elland Road career what he can do.

Here are some Leeds fans discussing Rodrigo:
