It seems as if a large section of the Elland Road faithful weren’t too bothered about progressing in the world’s oldest cup competition and that was shown by the reactions to the starting XI announcement.

The likes of Ben White, Mateusz Klich and Jack Harrison who have started every single league game this season weren’t given a rest for the Arsenal game.

Understandably, with the Yorkshire club knocking on the door of the Premier League, some supporters were worried about the prospect of their star players picking up injuries.

One specific worry from some fans was an injury to Patrick Bamford.
