Leeds’ predicted XI to face Brentford as Marcelo Bielsa finally makes changes

Championship Picks

Leeds are so far unbeaten this season, taking two victories and a draw away from their opening three matches in the Championship.

Brentford are likely to present them with a different test, one which will conjure up the distraction of a certain Pontus Jansson playing against his former employers.

Ben White has stepped into his shoes admirably this term, completing 2.7 tackles per game, and he is likely to feature again on Wednesday.

However, who will play alongside him? We’ve had a go at predicting Leeds starting XI for the match.

The first thing to note is that Marcelo Bielsa could finally be about to make some changes.

The Argentine has started the season with the exact same line-up in all of their Championship outings, even revealing his team before their game against Wigan.

Fortunately for Leeds they still won but it could have handed the Latics a major advantage.

Ahead of their game with the Bees, three players are all doubts with Liam Cooper, Barry Douglas and Ezgjan Alioski potentially missing out.

As a result, Bielsa has claimed that if the two latter names aren’t fit enough, Stuart Dallas will play at left-back with Jamie Shackleton on the right side of defence.

If Cooper sits out then his replacement will likely be Gaetano Berardi.

Barring those potential switches, it could be a familiar midfield and attack for the Whites. That’s despite Eddie Nketiah and Helder Costa being involved in goals against Salford in their last midweek clash.

Patrick Bamford is fresh from scoring twice last weekend whilst Jack Harrison should keep his place after an impressive performance which saw him create four chances.
