Leeds United have started their new season in the Championship in a scintillating manner as they have bagged 17 points from their first 7 league outings and are placed at the top of the league table. The Whites have been excellent during their outings and despite the fact that the campaign is only in its initial stage, they have seemingly appeared to be a side capable enough to earn a promotion.

Thomas Christiansen’s men secured a 2-0 win over Birmingham City in their last fixture and with their spirits being sky high, they are to make a trip to the Den to face Millwall. Here is how we expect Leeds United to line-up against the Lions.

Defence

Leeds United have bagged six clean sheets in their last six league fixtures and Felix Wiedwald has had a significant say in the same. Wiedwald has been really trustworthy and has discharged his duties of being a custodian in a shrewd manner. He is expected to start with the gloves on this weekend.

At the heart of the defence of the Yorkshire based club, we expect Christiansen to keep the cohesiveness among Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson pretty much intact. These two have been shrewd in discharging their defensive duties and have given the license to the attackers to maraud forward with much more ease.

From the right-back slot, it is expected that Luke Ayling would be pencilled to put his attacking prowess and defensive solidity on display whereas on the left-back position, former Newcastle United man Vurnon Anita should be getting the nod to start.

Midfield

Eunan O’Kane and Kalvin Phillips have been toiling relentlessly and have cushioned the backline with some notable flair. The duo is anticipated to bag yet another start in the middle of the park to knit the side together as a unit and dictate the tempo of the game.

Samu Saiz found his name on the score sheet against the Blues in the latest encounter of the Peacocks and should be manoeuvred into the no.10 role to open up the defence with his shrewd passes and vision.

Attack

Up front, we expect Pierre-Michel to spearhead the attack as his fine run of form should tempt Christiansen in handing him a place in the starting line-up. On the right-wing, Kemar Roofe is expected to start whereas on the left-wing, Stuart Dallas should be getting a game under his belt as Leeds United’s squad depth should prompt the gaffer in rotating his squad.

Here is how they might line up:
