Predicted Leeds XI, team and injury news vs West Ham

Leeds United return to Premier League action this evening as they welcome West Ham United to Elland Road in what is a crucial encounter at the foot of the standings.

Both teams are enduring a tough campaign so far.

The Whites are just two points off the relegation zone, whilst the Irons occupy the final spot of safety, so they could leapfrog the Yorkshire side come full-time if successful.

Last time out, Jesse Marsch’s men were held to a 0-0 draw by the top-flight’s best defensive team, Newcastle United, so it will be interesting to see if the American head coach tinkers with the starting XI at all.

Here’s the line-up we’re predicting…

There could be as many as four changes from New Year’s Eve.

Between the sticks, French shot-stopper Illan Meslier will keep his place but there will be one alteration to the back four that kept a clean sheet against the Magpies.

Whilst this game may come too soon for new signing Max Wober, his former RB Salzburg teammate Rasmus Kristensen could come back in, replacing Luke Ayling at right-back. He’ll join skipper Liam Cooper, Robin Koch and makeshift left-back Pascal Struijk.

Can you get 100% on this Leeds World Cup transfer quiz? Question 1. After starring for England at the 2002 World Cup, how much did Leeds sell Rio Ferdinand to Manchester United for?

In midfield, we could see Marc Roca return to partner Tyler Adams, a tandem that worked so well before the World Cup break, whilst further up the pitch only Rodrigo and Brenden Aaronson keep their places.

Jack Harrison – once dubbed as a “beast” by journalist Beren Cross – may make way for Crysencio Summerville as his poor form continued at the weekend. It’s now 12 games without a goal or assist for the English winger, who Leeds valued at a whopping £35m in the summer

Whilst academy gem Sam Greenwood could take the place of fellow youngster Wilfried Gnonto to play in the no.10 role.

AND in other news, Marsch must unleash Leeds’ 20 y/o “weapon” tonight, he could cause West Ham nightmares
