4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Hull City: Matthew Pennington To Start?

Leeds United will travel to Hull City on Tuesday night after suffering four defeats in their last five outings in all competitions. Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen will be desperate to bounce back against Championship strugglers Hull City with three crucial points up for grabs. The Peacocks are still in contention to secure a playoff spot at the end of the season but are currently five points behind Fulham who are in 6th place. They are currently sitting in 9th place with just goal difference separating them from Brentford. A big victory away at Hull could go a long way in giving them the confidence to finish in the top 6 at the end of the season.

The Tigers, on the other hand, are in dire need of some results in their quest to save themselves from a potential relegation from the Championship this season. The recent history of the fixture makes grim reading for Hull fans as their side has not tasted victory in any of their previous three meetings with the Elland Road-based outfit. Thomas Christensen is expected to stick with a 4-2-3-1 formation and might opt for Matthew Pennington in his starting lineup.

4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup To Face Hull City

Defence

Felix Wiedwald will once again start in goal for the Peacocks and is expected to be shielded by a back four of Pontus Jannson and Matthew Pennington in central defence while Gaetano Berardi takes his place at right-back and Laurens De Bock starts on the left-hand side of the backline.

Thomas Christiansen will be hoping that his defenders can keep a clean sheet versus the Tigers which will give them a good platform to boost their goal difference.

Midfield

Kalvin Phillips and Ronaldo Vieira will line up as the holding midfielders and the trio of Pawel Cibicki, Pablo Hernandez and Ergjan Alioski will play just ahead of them. They will be responsible for creating and scoring goals for the Peacocks and put an end to their recent poor run of scoring only four times in their last five games in all competitions.

Attack

Pierre-Michel Lasogga is expected to lead the lines for Leeds United up top. The 26-year-old will look to add to his goal tally of 7 goals in 18 matches in all competitions when he laces up to face the Tigers on Tuesday night. It remains to be seen if he can get his name on the scoresheet against Nigel Adkin’s side.
