Looks like I got this wrong, again.

But that’s never stopped me before.

Having said on Friday that I felt that Leeds needed to put out a strong side when they travelled to the Emirates tomorrow to face Arsenal, it looks as if Marcelo Bielsa is going to go in completely the opposite direction.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the game, Bielsa said that there would be a number of young players that would be making appearances against the Gunners, with French goalkeeper Illan Meslier and Robbie Gotts among the players mentioned to make their bows.

But it was the inclusion of Gotts that received the majority of the attention from Leeds fans on social media, having spent all season on the bench, the chance to see the Harrogate born man was too much for them as they exploded with joy at the prospect.

Do you want Leeds to beat Arsenal?

Yes, take the cup seriously

No, focus on the league

Now that he’s set to be given his chance, I wonder if he’ll do enough to leave us wanting more. Maybe he’ll do enough to make his way into the first-team on a more regular basis. I guess we’re going to have to wait to find out.
