Three underused Leeds players: Including Ronaldo Vieira and summer signing

Leeds United have made a bright start to the new Championship season, but perhaps not every member of the squad will be entirely happy.

With the Championship now 11 games old, it is starting to become clearer what each manager deems his strongest side to be, and which players are closer to the periphery of their plans at the moment.

With that in mind, here is a look at three Leeds players who Thomas Christiansen has relied upon less often this season who arguably deserve more opportunities...

Stuart Dallas Stuart Dallas has featured in all but one of Leeds' Championship games this season, but it could certainly be argued that he has still been underused by Christiansen, having started on just one occasion. Dallas rarely lets the Whites down and his defensive contribution would have probably been useful in a couple of games when Leeds have been under the cosh. He has also scored twice in the league.

Ronaldo Vieira During the early weeks of the season, Eunan O'Kane and Kalvin Phillips formed a fantastic partnership in the middle of the park, so leaving either out would have been slated had it backfired. But Ronaldo Vieira was excellent last season and arguably has the potential to be the best midfielder in the side, so should surely come into Christiansen's thinking on a more regular basis. Leeds' most recent performances suggest that they could do with his combative mentality in the middle of the park.

Andy Lonergan is an experienced Championship goalkeeper so perhaps there would be an argument to suggest that he deserves a run in the side after the international break.

Which Leeds players do you think have been underused so far?
