Leeds have endured a turbulent few weeks in their hunt for promotion and a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest at the weekend was the latest disappointing result for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
The Peacocks face a huge promotion battle with Middlesbrough and Sheffield United this season and, given the need for improvements, many fans believe it is time for Bielsa to look within his squad for inspiration.
After the U23 side defeated Hull City 2-1 on Monday, plenty of supporters flocked to social media to rave about the latest performance of Jack Clarke – a player who has already caught the eyes in the first-team this season after a number of cameos off the bench.
Clarke was one of the standout performers for the U23 side and it left many fans calling for him to earn his first start in the coming weeks, believing he can be a tremendous asset to the first-team. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Clarke was head and shoulders above everyone on the pitch barring Douglas before he went off. A start is definitely calling for him. #lufc

Time to give Clarke a start on Sunday? Caused problems against Blackburn and Forest. #LUFC
