4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Line-up Vs Birmingham City: Can They Bag All Three Points?

Championship outfit Leeds United have started the new season in a scintillating manner. The Whites have collected 14 points from their first 6 league outings, with their latest outing culminating in a 5-0 win for them at the Elland Road against Burton Albion on 9th September.

With the momentum in their favour, they are due to host Birmingham City in the midweek Championship fixture and here is how we feel Thomas Christiansen might be dishing out his starting line-up against Harry Redknapp’s side.

Defence

After his outing against Nigel Clough’s men, Felix Wiedwald extended his run of clean sheets to five league games as he stood firm against Burton Albion’s attack. Thus, it goes without saying that Wiedwald is going to be handed the role of the custodian between the sticks.

The central defence should be accommodated by Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper. These two have been absolutely superb at the heart of the defence of the Yorkshire based club, injecting the element of sheer resilience, and Christiansen is unlikely to trifle with them.

Vurnon Anita was slotted into the left-back slot and he did perform well until he picked up an injury and was replaced at the half-time, which implies that Manchester United loanee Cameron Borthwick-Jackson might be given the nod to start. On the right-back position, we expect Luke Ayling to be pencilled in the starting line-up.

Midfield

It is anticipated that the central midfield would be filled by Eunan O’Kane and Kalvin Phillips. O’Kane carved an impeccable composure for himself in the middle of the park with his vision and passes and also bagged a couple of assists to his name against Burton Albion.

Meanwhile, Phillips also constructed a cracking game for himself in the last outing, scoring a goal as well, and Christiansen would be keen to get the best out of these two in particular to outclass the Blues. The no. 10 role is expected to be handed to Samu Saiz.

Attack

Pierre Michel-Lasogga smashed a brace and chiselled an assist against the Brewers in his debut game to help the Peacocks to extend their unbeaten start in their league campaign, and thus, he is likely to be spearheading Leeds United’s attack.

Despite being moved from the centre-forward’s position, Kemar Roofe showed his calibre when he was inked out wide on the right last weekend. So, it is perceived that he would be kept on the right-wing once again with Pablo Hernandez on the left-wing to trouble the opposition with his creative and attacking prowess.
