Leeds Fans Turn On Player After Abject Tottenham Showing
Leeds United fans were not happy after their side's 3-0 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.
Marcelo Bielsa's team look sluggish as they were easily swept aside by their north London opponents thanks to goals from Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min, and Toby Alderweireld.
A late red card for Spurs defender Matt Doherty had no effect as Jose Mourinho continued his excellent record against Bielsa - which may have something to do with the Portuguese always having higher profile teams than the Argentine.

Leeds supoprters were rightly unhapy in the aftermath, and turned their ire on Mateusz Klich - who did not have the best of games.
The 30-year-old midfielder managed just one shot (off target), made no interceptions or tackles, and fouled Tottenham players twice - according to Whoscored.
This was enough for fans to say that they've had enough of the Poland international.
Has Klich actually dropped in terms of output? He doesn't seem himself at the minute, his clever passes are never quite there and his defensive work seems not up to his standard. Ayling passing out from centre back- worst at the club?- The Trainee RQT (@TrainingToTeach) January 2, 2021

They marked Kalvin out of the game 1st half and we couldn't cope. Think we should be looking for a quality replacement for Klich. Not good enough at this level I'm afraid..:neutral_face:- Ian_Leeds_UK (@ian_Leeds_UK) January 2, 2021
Leith Davis for Alioski and how can leith keep getting these rave reviews and not getting a look in. Meslier needs dropping for Casilla now to stop him thinking he cannot be dropped. Klich been worst player all season now but will not be dropped. Frustrating.- steve hatton (@SJobdodger) January 2, 2021
Still maintain Klich isn't good enough (or at least severely out of form) and Rodrigo needs a run at CF though #LUFC- Gilly (@tomgilf) January 2, 2021
Can klich just pretend he's injured for a souple of weeks... Needs a recharge- danny wilson (@beargryllz) January 2, 2021
Klich.....honestly think the lads reached his peak. Needs out until he either finds his form or packs in- Only fools and Premier League (@WAFLL_92) January 2, 2021
Didn't think we looked as dangerous today. Raphinha and klich both off form. Silly errors in the wrong areas cost us, you could see the difference in quality and experience. Big plus is Sturijk is looking a excellent prospect.- Ian Rawlings (@IanRawlings2) January 2, 2021
Leeds fans have had an entertaining season so far, which sees them a comfortable 12 points above the relegation places after 17 matches in their first campaign back in the Premier League - although they have played more games than many of the teams below them.
Their last five fixtures perhaps sum up their season to date, which has been classic Bielsa. 5-2 and 5-0 thrashings of Newcastle and West Brom have been matched by comprehensive 5-2 and 3-0 defeats by Manchester United and Tottenham, with a 1-0 win over Burnley also sneaking in there.
