Leeds United had made a disastrous start to their Championship campaign and the manager Garry Monk is already under considerable pressure with five matches into the new season. The Whites have lost three out of their five Championship games this season winning just one. The Yorkshire club are right now sitting lowly at 21st, just one spot above the danger zone.

Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, have made a dream start to their season and remain unbeaten in their five matches so far. The Terriers are sitting at the top of the table right now with 13 points from five games. The visitors have been the surprise package this season having won 1-2 against Newcastle United away from home and coming back with one point from Villa Park.

Huddersfield won the corresponding fixture 4-1 last season but lost 0-3 to Leeds at home. There are no draws in the last eight meetings between Leeds and Huddersfield. Records suggest that we can expect an exciting game but Leeds are heading into the game as underdogs with real pressure on them. Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, will be without much pressure and have the momentum to see off the Whites at Elland Road.

Here is the predicted Leeds United lineup against Huddersfield Town.


Experienced Roberto Green will start between the sticks for the Whites. Liam Cooper will take the armband and will start at the heart of the defence alongside Kyle Bartley after the recent release of Sol Bamba from the club. Luke Ayling and Charlie Taylor will start in the two full-back positions.


Liam Bridcutt is an assured started in the middle of the park and his key job will be to offer the back four a solid protection. Youngster Kalvin Phillips scored a late goal for Leeds against Nottingham Forest in the last game and should start the game in the middle. Kemar Roofe is likely to start on the right flank while experienced former Valencia and Swansea winger Pablo Hernandez is likely to start on the left.


Chris Wood and Marcus Antonsson have scored just three goals between them this season in five games. The fans will hope that the duo improve in front of the goal or else Leeds will have to struggle for goals this season too.
