Leeds United face a crunch clash against Swansea City at Elland Road on Wednesday. Marcelo Bielsa’s side will need a victory in order to keep up with the pace being set by their fellow Championship title-chasers Norwich City and Sheffield United.
The Whites have suffered a drop off in form in recent weeks, and have especially struggled to score goals. They’ve created a number chances in recent games but far too many of them have been wasted.
In order to give his side what they in the final third, Bielsa must include Patrick Bamford in his starting XI against the Swans.
Watch the video below to see the most insane overhead kick you will see this week…
The 25-year-old has barely featured since his summer arrival at Elland Road due to injury, but he is fit now and is a proven goalscorer at this level. Having started against Middlesbrough last time out, the No. 9 ought to now be up to speed and ready to kick on, so Bielsa should stick with him.
Bamford is a fine finisher and if Leeds create chances for him then he will almost certainly put them away. At this stage in the season, the former Chelsea man hitting his stride is exactly what Leeds need.
