HYS: Should Saiz lose his place vs Ipswich?

Leeds fell to their second league defeat of the Marcelo Bielsa era on Saturday, so should the boss make some major changes for Wednesday’s match?

The Whites welcome Ipswich to Elland Road on Wednesday knowing a win will get them right back on track after Saturday’s setback.

Bielsa’s side lost 2-1 at Blackburn courtesy of some awful set-piece defending, and fans were fuming at their side’s inability to do the basics.

While the defence was as much to blame as the attack, the performance certainly wasn’t as fluid as some of the earlier displays, so could it be time to make some attacking changes?

Samuel Saiz is a fan favourite for his work rate and ability on the ball, but the little Spaniard has been wasteful in the last few games.

The 27-year-old took far too many touches on several occasions at Ewood Park, and looked tired both with and without the ball.

Bielsa has plenty of attacking options after the return of Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez, so it could benefit both Saiz and the team to bench the Spaniard.

If tiredness is the issue, the team could suffer another blow to their promotion hopes against Ipswich if he starts again, so Bielsa should freshen things up and use him as a super-sub.

So, Leeds fans, do you think Saiz needs a rest? Should he miss out vs Ipswich? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
