Marcelo Bielsa must finally axe Leeds passenger Mateusz Klich vs Spurs

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa will be feeling the pressure when his side welcomes Tottenham Hotspur to Elland Road in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Yorkshiremen were destroyed by Liverpool only a few days ago as they leaked a whopping six goals, taking their abysmal record to a worrying 38 goals conceded across their last 12 fixtures, in which the side have managed only two wins.

Letting in 3.2 goals per game over the past few months is relegation form and the Whites are on the cusp of being dragged into the mire with the team currently occupying 15th place.

Should Bielsa axe Klich vs Spurs?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

After 16 goals conceded in the last four games alone, Bielsa must ring the changes where he can, owing to the fact that his hands are somewhat tied due to injuries.

And one change could be staring him in the face, based on his recent decisions.

Over two of the last three games, specifically the 6-0 whitewash at the hands of Jurgen Klopp and a 3-0 defeat to Everton, Mateusz Klich has been withdrawn at half-time – a rather damning indictment over the wavering faith the Argentine has in him.

Bielsa tested him in a deeper role against the Toffees and that experiment failed to pay any sort of dividends, evidently, whilst in midweek, he was replaced by Jamie Shackleton as Leeds missed Stuart Dallas’ midfield presence.

He ought to do himself and the team a favour. He should just axe the 31-year-old Poland international if he’s going to withdraw him early anyway.

Which Argentinian side has Marcelo Bielsa played for and managed?

Klich is indeed one of the worst-performing players in this struggling squad, averaging a 6.43 rating by WhoScored, which sees him rank fourth-bottom for all players to have started 12 or more league games.

In both of those matches where he was taken off at the break, he failed to record above a 5.9 rating.

Against Everton, the long-serving midfielder was deemed to be “non-existent” by Sky Sports pundit Clinton Morrison, so it could well be time for Bielsa to stop putting the faith in the £34k-per-week star.

Klich must be axed if Leeds want to stand a chance at overcoming Spurs today.
