Leeds United returned to winning ways on Saturday by beating Bristol City 2-0 at Elland Road, bouncing back from the defeat they sustained against West Brom prior to the international break.
The victory could kickstart a run of form for the Peacocks as they enter the busy festive season, where Marcelo Bielsa’s side face the prospect of eight games over the course of six weeks – starting with tomorrow night’s clash with Reading.
Due to the intensity of the schedule on the horizon, Bielsa may need to dip into his reserves to keep the squad fresh and fans have once again been calling for Ezgjan Alioski to be ousted from the starting line-up.
The Macedonia international is one of three players to have featured in all 18 of Leeds’ Championship games so far this season, alongside Matheusz Klich and Kalvin Phillips, but his displays have left a lot to be desired.
After another sub-par performance at the weekend, many fans continued to criticise the player on social media and we have gathered some of their reactions below.
Alioski frustrating phil?? Well there's a shock-been a passenger in this team all season.

Over and over again, after one useless Alioski game after another. It’s infuriating and I just don’t get it.

#lufc not great today. Did just enough. Alioski poor again. Need to be starting Saiz and Clarke on Tuesday. Halme looks a prospect too..

Douglas had the ball yesterday looked up to roll it forward and sees Alioski running off into nowhere, you could see his frustration with Alioski still playing football like it's his first game. #lufc
