Samuel Saiz has done enough to win his Leeds starting spot back

Leeds United secured a 2-0 win in the Championship over Bristol City on Saturday and it was the fourth consecutive league match that Samuel Saiz was named on the bench.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder was far from his dazzling best in the early stages of the season and ended up paying for that with his spot in the starting XI.

But he’s continued to work hard and produced an assist off the bench against West Brom before the international break.

He offers a unique attacking threat unlike his teammates and surely manager Marcelo Bielsa can’t overlook him for the next fixture.


Saiz more than makes up for his lack of discipline with his attacking qualities and now could be the perfect time to reintegrate him to the XI after a brief spell out.

Leeds host Reading on Tuesday night at Elland Road in the league and the creative maestro should be able to pull the strings, with the Yorkshire giants looking to keep their promotion bid up.

Reading are languishing down in 20th in the league table and Saiz could cause havoc alongside chief attacking tormentor Hernandez.
