Leeds United started December in the perfect fashion after seeing off Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United at Bramall Lane last Saturday, with Pablo Hernandez scoring the only goal of the game.

That victory, accompanied by West Brom’s draw on Monday, has given Leeds a four-point cushion over the third-placed Baggies heading into the busy festive season – and means that Marcelo Bielsa’s side have won their last four Championship matches without conceding.

Injury issues have tested the depth of Bielsa’s squad this season and it has allowed a number of fringe players to make an impression, with 18-year-old Jack Clarke amongst those to benefit – and he has grabbed his opportunities with both hands.

The teenager has excelled with cameo performances off the bench and many fans are calling for him to get a chance from the start in place of Ezgjan Alioski, with the debate taken up a notch by a statistical comparison shared on social media.

We have gathered some of the reactions on the pair below.
