Leeds United have stormed to second position in the Championship standings and the results over the weekend have seen the Peacocks open a four-point cushion over West Brom.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side suffered defeat to their promotion rivals last month but have responded superbly by winning all three matches since, including their 1-0 triumph against Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United on Saturday.
That victory gave the Peacocks the perfect start to what will be a busy festive season, where Leeds will be aiming to cement their position in the Championship’s top two and potentially knock Norwich City off their perch.
Another stern test awaits this weekend as Leeds clash with QPR, in what will be a rehearsal for next month’s FA Cup third-round clash, and many fans are hoping that Bielsa makes a tactical change for the game at Elland Road by dropping Ezgjan Alioski.
Amidst suggestions that the Macedonia international could be rested, plenty of fans prayed for that to happen and we have gathered some of their comments below.
It was time for a rest 3 weeks ago.

Harrison should get the nod I know Clarke’s been proving a point for a start when he’s on but I like Clarke off the bench at tired legs really works
