Beren Cross hints at Leeds team vs Brighton

Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch could select an unchanged lineup for their trip to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League later this afternoon…

What’s the latest?

That’s according to ever-reliable LeedsLive journalist Beren Cross, who dropped the early team news hint to supporters on Twitter ahead of kick-off. He said:

“If you were ever going to put your house* on an unchanged line-up, this is the weekend to do it. (*Don’t do that).”

In an accompanying article, the Whites reporter named his starting XI as the exactly the same that started in the shock 3-0 win over Chelsea last weekend.

So that’s a 4-2-3-1 of Illan Meslier; Rasmus Kristensen, Diego Llorente, Robin Koch, Pascal Struijk; Tyler Adams, Marc Roca; Daniel James, Brenden Aaronson, Jack Harrison; Rodrigo.

Should Marsch stick with an unchanged lineup today?





Marsch is surely buzzing

This will surely leave the American head coach absolutely delighted as he may not want to tinker with a side that remains unbeaten from their opening three games, whilst he has no new injury concerns.

And despite Patrick Bamford being an injury doubt, the Yorkshire side registered the best performance of Marsch’s time at the club without him, so it would make sense to run it again and let the England international edge closer to 100% fitness.

Club captain Liam Cooper and summer signing Luis Sinisterra, who both made a midweek appearance in the Carabao Cup, are the only two other names that leave him with plenty to think about but the former isn’t likely to be rushed into action either.

There’s certainly a case to be made for the Colombian winger to start in the place of James, who was the only member of Leeds’ front four to not get on the scoresheet or assist either.

Either way, the 48-year-old will be buzzing heading into kickoff this afternoon as he has everyone he expected fit and available as he looks to make it four matches unbeaten for the third-place outfit.
