Leeds fans on Twitter love Bielsa for brave substitution against Swansea

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa wasted no time in making changes during his side’s 2-2 draw with Swansea last night, as he hooked Kalvin Phillips off after just 28 minutes.

The 22-year-old central midfielder was making his 100th appearance for the West Yorkshire side but was at fault for Swansea’s first goal, as he lost the ball with little protection behind him and Oliver McBurnie poked home to finish off the counter attack.

Phillips was then booked 27 minutes in and his Argentine boss decided he had seen enough, despite the 22-year-old’s impressive start to the season. Leeds went on to equalise twice through Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez either side of another McBurnie goal.

Leeds are still unbeaten this season under Bielsa, who has implemented his high-pressure and high-intensity system. Fans of the Whites on Twitter were impressed with their new manager’s decision to make a change so early on in the game, when things clearly weren’t clicking for Leeds against an impressive Swansea side.

Check out some of the best reactions to the substitution below.
