Leeds United experimented a little bit with their starting lineup against Arsenal on Monday evening.
Marcelo Bielsa handed out two debuts at the Emirates to Illan Meslier and Robbie Gotts.
Many Leeds fans were full of praise for the Frenchman, but supporters have seemingly been quite split on Gotts’ first taste of senior football.

One section of the fanbase really liked what they saw from the 20-year-old, but it seems as though they’re wearing rose-tinted glasses as Gotts’ performance wasn’t brilliant.
Robbie Gotts was brilliant tonight #LUFC

Others gave a much harsher view on the youngster’s debut as they were critical of his performance.
Hopefully, Gotts can prove himself as a first-teamer if he is ever handed an opportunity in a league game against weaker opposition.
Hopefully gotts can build on his debut. Game ran away from him second half and credit for bielsa for seeing it and reacting #lufc

How can you not see that Harrison is far better on the Right
More confident in his decision making, better shooting
Gotts struggling with the step up, but hard game to debut in. Hope to see more of him performing at his usual level
Obvious lack of squad depth #LUFC

Gotts is not ready for the first team #lufc

Think Robbie Gotts is a little bit out of his depth here #Lufc
