Leeds United are flying high at the top of the Championship but a sequence of three consecutive defeats across all competitions has raised concerns heading into the second half of the season.

The Peacocks suffered losses against Hull City and Nottingham Forest in the league prior to defeat against QPR in the FA Cup third round on Saturday, while another tough test awaits on Friday evening against fellow promotion-chasers Derby County.

One major cause of concern for supporters at Elland Road is the lack of depth in key areas and many fans were left scratching their heads this week after it was confirmed that 22-year-old defender Conor Shaughnessy had moved to Hearts on loan until the end of the season.

While he had featured just once this season, the departure leaves Leeds’ defence looking rather slim and injury problems or suspensions could cause havoc in the months ahead – something which fans on social media were quick to point out.

We have gathered some of their comments below.
