4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Millwall: Adam Forshaw To Start For The Peacocks?

Leeds United will play hosts to Millwall at Elland Road on Saturday after suffering three defeats in their last four outings in all competitions. Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen will be desperate to bounce back against Championship strugglers Millwall with three crucial points up for grabs. The Peacocks are well in contention to secure a playoff spot at the end of the season. They are currently in 7th place with just goal difference separating them from a playoff place which is being occupied by Sheffield United right now. A big victory at home versus Millwall should be enough for them to get into the top 6 at the end of this game week.

The Lions, on the other hand, are in dire need of some results to go their way but are temporarily out of relegation danger. Neil Harris’s side are sitting in 16th place in the English Championship standings, six points above the relegation zone going into this clash versus Leeds United. The recent history of the fixture does not favour anyone as both sides have tasted four victories each in their last 8 encounters in the league.

Thomas Christiansen is expected to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and their new signing from Middlesbrough, Adam Forshaw is set for a medical ahead of this game. He is highly anticipated to play some part in this match and might be in line for a start with midfielder Eunan O’Kane suspended for this clash due to a red card in their last league match.

4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup To Face Millwall

Defence

Felix Wiedwald will once again start in goal for the Peacocks and is expected to be protected by a back four of Pontus Jannson and Liam Cooper in central defence while Gaetano Berardi takes his place at right-back and Vernon Anita starts on the left-hand side of the backline.

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

Midfield

Kalvin Phillips and new signing Adam Forshaw 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 only once in their last four games in all competitions.

Attack

Kemar Roofe is expected to lead the lines for Leeds United up top. The 25-year-old will look to add to his goal tally of 10 goals in 27 matches in all competitions when he laces up to face Millwall on Saturday.
