It’s fair to say that Leeds haven’t had things go their way of late.
The Whites have been off-colour in recent weeks, picking up just one win in their last six league games, and even then that was an unconvincing performance as they relied on a late goal to beat Birmingham City 5-4.
Usually, you’d say this is the time for a manager to make wholesale changes, but due to the lack of depth in Leeds’ squad, Marcelo Bielsa can’t really do all that much.
That being said, we’re still expecting two changes to be made to the line up to face QPR this weekend.
Despite our calls earlier in the week for Illan Meslier to get a game, we expect Bielsa to continue with Casilla between the sticks.
An injury to Barry Douglas has forced a change in the back four as Ezgjan Alioski steps in for him, but other than that it remains the same with Liam Cooper and Ben White at centre-back and Luke Ayling on the right.
Mateusz Klich, Jack Harrison and Stuart Dallas all continue their streaks of starting every game this season after the manager confirmed that the injury the latter picked up last week won’t affect his chances of starting here.
Kalvin Phillips plays in holding midfield, and there is a change on the right side as Pablo Hernandez starts his first game since before Christmas.
Up top Patrick Bamford plays due to the fact that he remains the only senior striker in the squad.
