Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa raised the eyebrows of a few fans prior to Wednesday evening’s clash with Ipswich Town at Elland Road as given the starting lineup, many fans believed that Ezgjan Alioski was set the start in the left wingback position.

That was exactly where the 26-year-old did begin in the match and he put in a rather impressive performance that left a number of fans showering praise on him. There were also plenty of references to the fact that maybe it’s the ideal position for him given it’s far more difficult for him to be caught offside but there can often be an element of truth in jest.

In any event, he was more than worthy of his praise for his efforts on the day as he certainly put the yards in to do his job and for a number of fans he’s a far better option in the absence of Barry Douglas than Stuart Dallas.

We’ll have to see if Bielsa sticks or twists for Nottingham Forest at the weekend.
