View: Crysencio Summerville to fall down pecking order for Leeds United clash v Arsenal

Leeds United welcome Arsenal to Elland Road on Sunday afternoon (16 October) in the Premier League, with plenty of young talent set to be in both squads.

Jesse Marsch and Mikel Arteta are both not afraid to throw them into the firing line either, with the likes of Joe Gelhardt and Marquinihos both examples of this.

One player who will be itching for more though is Crysencio Summerville, with the young Dutchman not having the same senior impact as those around him so far.

Coming off the bench against Crystal Palace last time out was the perfect time to showcase his talents.

Without being too harsh though, going forward, he was nothing short of poor and that is only going to hurt his chances of first-team football in the immediate future.

To make things worst, Luis Sinisterra will be back available for the Whites after serving his one-match suspension, meaning Summerville will now automatically drop down the pecking order.

Marsch has certainly bigged up Summerville in his press conferences before games, but that first Premier League start is yet to arrive for the winger.

How much longer can that go on?

After signing a new long-term contract, talks will have been held over what the plan was for his development, and it probably wasn’t sitting on the bench every week.

With Jack Harrison and Sinisterra ahead of Summerville in the pecking order, it will have been disheartening for him to see Brenden Aaronson start out wide last time out.

Something is going to have to change soon, or we could see the young wonder ask to go out on loan, or even worst, move on for good from Leeds United.
