Leeds fans react to third kit announcement
A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club unveiled their new third kit for the current Premier League season.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are obviously synonymous with their white home strip.
Meanwhile, they wore their royal blue away kit for the first time in a competitive contest when they faced Burnley in their final game before the international break.
Leeds are back at Elland Road this weekend. Bielsa’s men host Liverpool looking for their first top-flight victory of the campaign.
But following that clash, the Whites face two away games. They will take on Newcastle at St James’ Park before coming up against Fulham in the Carabao Cup.
And one of those games may provide the right moment for Leeds to wear their third kit for the first time.
The Whites wore their burgundy-like number in both of those fixtures last season.
So perhaps, there is a good chance that Leeds will debut their new lilac kit after unveiling the strip on Wednesday evening.

Whites have point to prove after international break
Leeds were not at their best before the break. They have taken two points from their opening three games.
What they have shown is their battling spirit. They have equalised in all three games, with the Whites coming from behind twice against Everton.
Liverpool have been impressive so far. So Leeds will need to rediscover their best form if they hope to secure a positive result.
But the Reds certainly will not be taking them lightly.
