Leeds fans want Diego Llorente to start on Saturday against Brighton

Leeds United host Brighton on Saturday afternoon – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter have claimed in the build-up to the fixture that they want Diego Llorente to start for them.

The Whites welcome Brighton to Elland Road this weekend for a Premier League fixture, as 12th plays 17th in the table.

Leeds have enjoyed an excellent return to the top-flight this season, but they have hit a blip recently.

The Yorkshire giants were defeated 3-0 away to Spurs in their previous league result, while last weekend they were beaten 3-0 away to League Two side Crawley Town in a huge FA Cup shock

They will hope a return home can help them get out of a mini blip and they’ve shown this year great resilience after defeats.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media have urged managed Marcelo Bielsa to recall Llorente to the XI against Brighton.

The 27-year-old defender has had a nightmare start to life in English football, making just one Leeds appearance all season so far due to injuries and becoming somewhat of a forgotten man sat on the sidelnes.

But Bielsa confirmed in his pre-match press conference that the Spain international is available.

The talented centre-back will hope he gets just his second game for the club, but there is competition for places in that area of the pitch.

Here are some Leeds fans discussing Llorente:
