Leeds fans urge Marcelo Bielsa to recall one player against West Ham

Marcelo Bielsa is set to welcome back both Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo to his Leeds United side as the Whites take on West Ham United on Monday night at the London Stadium – but Leeds fans want their Argentine gaffer to make another alteration.

Phillips, 24, is expected to start – according to Phil Hay. He claims on The Athletic’s Q&A website that Phillips should be in the starting line-up, while Rodrigo will also be available and Gaetano Berardi has also travelled down south, via the train.

England international Phillips could replace Pascal Struijk, who has been used a lot more regularly than many could have predicted – benefitting from injuries to Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Phillips. He played as the anchor last time out.

So, Phillips is likely to come in for Struijk – while Rodrigo could replace either Tyler Roberts or Mateusz Klich, if Bielsa deems the Spain international ready to go from the off. He has been absent for six matches, but did play for the 23’s last Friday.

But Leeds fans want another change. Helder Costa has impressed from the bench and started against Villa over Jack Harrison, but the Portuguese man failed to impress during the 1-0 win. Leeds supporters want £15,000-a-week (Spotrac) Harrison to start.
