Leeds United have endured a slight dip in form recently, winning just two of their last six games in what is shaping up to be an extremely close promotion battle alongside the likes of Sheffield United and Middlesbrough.
A busy few months are on the cards in the coming weeks and Bielsa may have to shake things up to keep their side looking fresh, which has led many to push for Jack Clarke to be handed a chance from the start.
The 17-year-old forward impressed after coming off the bench for the final 25 minutes of Leeds’ draw with Nottingham Forest, earning praise from BBC journalist Adam Pope – which led to an onslaught of messages from fellow supporters.
Plenty of fans shared how excited they are about the future of the talented teenager, who they are tipping to be a future England international, and it is clear they want to see more of this lad in the coming weeks.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
How many times have I said it mate? He’s a game changer. Dynamic. Takes players on. There’s goals in him too

Best winger we have bar none noticed every time Klich had ball he tried to get Clarke on the ball and only 17 scary how good this kid can get

Different class, I’ve kept tabs on him since his early academy days, it’s rare from the moment you see a kid you just know he’s the real deal.
This is such a kid, said last night he’ll play for England one day as will Pearce.

He looks ready.. I’d honestly be tempted to start him, although I know they don’t like to put too much on young shoulders. Really made a difference when he came on. Natural talent.
