Leeds United suffered their first league loss of the season yesterday.

In a match at Elland Road against lowly Birmingham City, Leeds slumped to a 2-1 loss.

Ex-Leeds manager Garry Monk picked up his first win of the season with the Blues, while condemning Leeds to their first defeat.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are still top of the league but this loss acts as a real wake-up call in their quest for promotion.

Leeds went behind early against Birmingham. Che Adams got on the score sheet with a strike which Bailey Peacock-Farrell really should have dealt with.

The Northern Ireland international’s positioning was questionable as he was beaten by Adams’ drive.

On 29 minutes, Adams grabbed a second. Once again, Peacock-Farrell could arguably have done better.

It was a mishit shot from Adams from outside the area which sneaked past Peacock-Farrell into the net.

After another shaky display from the 21-year-old, some Leeds fans called for Jamal Blackman to start.

However, others believed that Bielsa should keep faith in Peacock-Farrell.

Here are some Leeds fans debating the goalkeeper situation after a poor display from their academy product.
