Leeds United suffered their sixth loss in ten matches on Friday, this time heavily defeated 3-0 away to Middlesbrough.
After stopping the winless rot last week against Brentford, it was back to business as usual for Paul Heckingbottom’s side after a dreadful 90 minutes in the English Championship.
Patrick Bamford scored a hat-trick to secure the victory for Boro, with Leeds failing to producing much at all in response.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga was isolated all evening and the Whites midfield struggled to get to grips with the game.
After picking up a goal and an assists in his previous two matches, it was again a frustrating performance from Ezgjan Alioski too, who was whipped off at half-time by Heckingbottom.
Fans have been annoyed at the Macedonian international in recent months for his inability to find consistency and despite a promising couple of matches, they’re again losing patience.
Supporters took to Twitter to discuss his role in the Leeds line-up…
Lasogga was given no service at all last night. Dallas and Alioski are just not good enough imo. Too many inconstant players. Will be hard to do business this summer seen as though most of our players are tied down and apparently we have no funds left #lufc

Why do #lufc fans still talk as if alioski has any potential to be a competent championship footballer. Passenger last night, same as majority of other games. One of best things I've seen about PH is he didn't appear to tolerate it, deservedly subbed at half time.

All you need are wingers like traore tho fast powerful not afraid of taking defenders on yet we have dancing prancing Alioski who can do well on his day but isn't tough and Dallas who seems sluggish and needs to be more attacking not helping Anita out #lufc

Alioski wasn’t tracking back! Let Friend build the pressure against us! Ultimately led to many corners in that period! Ineffective player along with many others!

Alioski proving once again that he only performs/looks good when Saiz plays well, which he didn't, so he was dragged off at home time
