According to Football Insider, Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa will not include Arsenal-owned striker Eddie Nketiah in the starting lineup for a while.

Nketiah, who joined Leeds on loan from Premier League club Arsenal in the summer transfer window, has yet to make a start for the West Yorkshire outfit in the Championship this season.

According to WhoScored, the 20-year-old striker made seven substitute appearances in the Championship for the Whites so far this season, scoring two goals in the process.

The England Under-21 international striker has scored two goals in two EFL Cup ties for the Whites so far this campaign, according to WhoScored.

There have been calls for Nketiah to be given a start for Leeds, but Football Insider has claimed that the club’s head coach Bielsa plans to keep the Arsenal-owned striker on the substitutes’ bench

The report has claimed that Bielsa will not sway from his stance of keeping Patrick Bamford as the first-choice goalkeeper after the international break.
