Leeds’ predicted XI against West Brom

Leeds enter 2020 just as they entered 2019.

Once again, they’re in a great position to go on and get promoted, but their performances have been lacking in recent weeks as they’ve won just one of their previous four games.

The Whites have an incredibly tough game against second-placed West Bromwich Albion on New Year’s Day, and Marcelo Bielsa will undoubtedly be fielding his strongest possible XI for this one.

Unfortunately, Leeds’ best XI is weaker than it would usually be as injuries to Pablo Hernandez and Adam Forshaw have limited Bielsa’s selection options.

Despite the fixture congestion at this time of year, the Whites don’t have the necessary depth to rotate all that much, so here’s the team we think the Argentine will go with on Wednesday evening. We’re tipping him to make just one change and go with a formation that will be familiar to most supporters.

Unsurprisingly, the five players who have started every game for United this season keep their streaks alive in this one as Kiko Casilla, Mateusz Klich, Ben White, Stuart Dallas and Jack Harrison all start.

The backline remains the same as it was against Birmingham despite conceding four goals, and the midfield also has very few changes in it.

However, one change that may be made is up top.

Patrick Bamford’s dead leg kept him about against the Blues, but such a minor issue shouldn’t keep him out for this one. With rumours circulating that Eddie Nketiah is about to be recalled it’s tough to see him starting at The Hawthorns so he misses out.

In other news, Leeds missing out on one striker could be a blessing in disguise.
