A lot of Leeds United fans will finally get their wish today, as Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah starts up front against Birmingham City at St. Andrews.

Regular starter Patrick Bamford has a dead leg so misses out completely, although he should be back for the New Year’s Day match against West Bromwich Albion. Wales international Tyler Roberts comes on to the bench following his return to fitness.

With how Marcelo Bielsa works, a good performance from England U21 international Nketiah could well see him keep his place going forward, particularly if the team as a whole plays well and wins.

Are you happy to see Nketiah get his chance? Will we miss Bamford’s hold up play?

I am going to plump for a 2-1 win. What do you think the result will be? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @ThruItAllLUFC.
