Leeds United will look to maintain their unbeaten start to their Championship campaign when they host Fulham at Elland Road on Tuesday night, and their fans want to see midfielder Ronaldo Vieira named in the starting line-up.
The Whites have started the season by taking four points from their first two fixtures, including the goalless draw at home to Preston North End on Saturday, as they look to better their seventh-place finish from last time out, but they face a difficult task against the Cottagers after they pipped Leeds to the play-offs last term.
19-year-old Vieira replaced Kalvin Phillips for the final 30 minutes against the Lilywhites at the weekend having not been named in the 18-man squad for the opening day win against Bolton Wanderers.
Now Leeds supporters want to see him named in the starting XI following a disappointing performance by Phillips against North End, with some even going as far as saying that “it’s imperative” that he starts.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Bridcutt or Vieira in for Phillips and Saiz in for Hernandez tonight #lufc

#LUFC Changes needed for Fulham. Phillips and Roofe were passengers Sat. Anita, Saiz; Vieira and klitch edging closer for me.

It's imperative that Vieira and Saiz start Tuesday. Lit up the game in the second half #lufc

Some positives to take from yesterday, but Vieira must start on tues and klich/bridcutt must replace Phillips entirely in the squad #lufc
