Leeds’ predicted XI to face Millwall this weekend

For Leeds the injuries that engulfed last season are seemingly back. The Whites may be sitting in second place but there was obviously negativity from supporters when Liam Cooper was ruled out for six weeks.

The Whites bounced back from their loss against Charlton last weekend by defeating previously unbeaten West Brom on Tuesday but the challenge of Millwall now faces them.

Leeds will be hoping to go into the international break with all three points, especially after Swansea leapfrogged them into top spot on Wednesday.

Bielsa chose to go unchanged in midweek, perhaps something that was a gamble given they lost prior to that meeting.

However, this time around he’ll be forced into making a switch. Here’s what we’re tipping him to go with.

With Cooper and Jamie Shackleton absent, that means changes will have to be made to the XI at the Den.

Luke Ayling could be set for his first start for the senior team since returning from injury as he came off the bench in midweek.

The former Arsenal man replaced Tyler Roberts as Leeds favoured a more defensive look for the final quarter at Elland Road. Stepping in for Cooper could be Gaetano Berardi.

Stuart Dallas moved into central midfield and that remains a possibility this weekend. He’s become a key figure in the side and has started every league match this term.

This change is something Bielsa claimed could happen in his press conference on Thursday.

Pablo Hernandez is set to miss out again so Helder Costa should be given another opportunity on the right flank.

Patrick Bamford has gone goalless in his last five outings but received praise from supporters after that win over the Baggies as he impressed with his work rate.

Eddie Nketiah, therefore, will have to wait patiently on the substitutes bench again.

Did Ayling deserve a new 4 year deal?

Yes

Yes
