Leeds’ predicted XI against Brentford

Tuesday’s game against Brentford could be a decisive match in Leeds United’s season.

The Whites can drop as low as fifth if they fail to beat the Bees, and if they do it’s hard to see a path back into the top two after blowing an 11-point lead over third place.

The Yorkshire club quite simply have to win at Griffin Park to stay in the automatic promotion spots, and in order to do that you’d think that something has to change.

However, with Marcelo Bielsa at the helm, it’s hard to imagine that he’ll make wholesale changes as he often perseveres with the same players, with seven men starting 27 or more league games this term.

Therefore, we’re predicting Bielsa to go with a similar XI to the one that started against Nottingham Forest at the weekend with just one change.

The first thing that will jump out is the fact that despite his poor performances in recent weeks, Kiko Casilla starts.

The Spaniard has been nothing short of terrible lately, he was beaten far too easily at his near post against Nottingham Forest at the weekend, and fans have been on his back for weeks.

The back four also looks very similar in terms of personnel, but there has been a reshuffle when it comes to positions.

Stuart Dallas has swapped flanks with Ezgjan Alioski dropping out of the team while Ben White moves back to centre-half to partner Liam Cooper after playing in midfield against Forest. Luke Ayling switches to the right.

In front of them, we see the return of Kalvin Phillips after his three-game suspension, but other than that the midfield and attack are pretty much the same.

Can you name which season Leeds signed this flop?

Jack Harrison and Helder Costa play wide, while Mateusz Klich and Pablo Hernandez operate through the middle.

Patrick Bamford still starts up top. It’s once again been hinted by Bielsa that it’s too early for Jean-Kevin Augustin to start.

In other news, QSI could be about to do Leeds a favour.
