Predicted Leeds United XI to face Wolves in the Premier League
An interesting fixture by all means as Marco Bielsa goes up against Nuno Espirito Santo. Both tacticians will be looking to get one over each other.
Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that Liam Cooper and Diego Llorente are out of the game via the club’s official website. This would likely mean a few changes in personnel as well as formation. Other than that, there is a fully fit squad to take pick from.
Probable Leeds XI
Ilian Meslier (GK)
Meslier retains his spot between the sticks after impressing in the last game.
Pascal Struijk (CB)
Replaces the doubtful captain Liam Cooper and slots into the back three. An Adama Traore test awaits him.
Robin Koch (CB)
Will be the central most defender and is bound to have his hands full with Raul Jimenez.
Luke Ayling (CB)
Ayling will need to switch to a more central role as a part of the back three.
Kalvin Phillips (CDM)
The Englishman is the heart and soul of Leeds’ midfield. His ability to sit deep, offer protection to the backline and spray forward passes will be something to watch.
Stuart Dallas (CM)
Dallas might return to midfield duties due to a change in formation. He does play a variety of roles throughout the game.
Mateusz Klich (CM)
Another important player for the team with his endless bags of energy. Winning his midfield battle with the opposite number will be vital.
Rodrigo Moreno (AM)
Scorer of the only goal in the last game and is likely to replace Tyler Roberts which might seem a bit harsh on the youngster.
Jack Harrison (LM)
The speedy winger will be vital to Leeds’ progression on the wings and will be tasked to outpace Adama Traore.
Helder Costa (RM)
Switches to a more withdrawn role but will nonetheless need to provide threat from the wide position.
Patrick Bamford (ST)
It’s been a good start to the season for the former Chelsea man. With 3 goals in the last 4 league games, you would fancy him to get on the scoresheet again.
