Leeds United will travel to KCOM Stadium this week, to take on league strugglers Hull City next. The Tigers, though, did a big favour for the Whites in their last game as they took a point off Middlesbrough and held them to a draw. Now the Whites will hope that they can see off Nigel Adkins side.

In the last game, United almost battered Sheffield Wednesday by coming up with waves of attacks in the second half, but it was just one of those days where the ball didn’t find the back of the net more than once. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have dropped seven points from their last four games, but the quality of football has pretty much remained the same. This time the gaffer would hope that they are more decisive and take their chances in the final third as they desperately need three points after getting toppled over by West Bromwich Albion for the top spot.

Kemar Roofe should be close to coming back, but there are no signs that he would be fit in time for the Hull City game. Other injured players like Gaetano Berardi, Patrick Bamford and Pablo Hernandez remain to be out of contention for this game.

Leeds United’s Predicted Lineup Vs Hull City



Bailey Peacock Farrell has had some nervy moments off late, but we expect the Northern Ireland international to start in goal once again. With little options to manoeuvre in the centre back position, Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper would continue to start in the heart of the defence. Both of them have been doing well defensively, but they need to be calmer while building up from the back.

Luke Ayling and Barry Douglas will reprise their usual fullback roles. The duo was extremely threatening in the last game and was always bombing forward at every opportunity.


Kalvin Phillips has been a preferred starter so far in front of the back four, but we believe it’s time for Adam Forshaw to take the mantle in that role. Phillips’ passing at the back at times looked nervy, and maybe someone more experienced like Forshaw could be tried in that role who is back to full fitness now. Though the way Bielsa has been going, he is likely to trust Phillips again.

Ezgjan Alioski has been guilty of drifting in offside positions and coming up with poor crosses. Therefore that is another position we feel a change is necessary and Stuart Dallas should start down the left flank. Mateusz Klich and Samuel Saiz would start in midfield in central areas, and Saiz also needs to pick his game after a poor outing against their derby rivals last time around. Down the right young Jack Harrison should start.


Tyler Roberts will lead the line once again, and one cannot fault the youngster for his effort and positioning. All he needs is killer instinct and sound decision making in the final third which, to be honest, almost all the attacking players have lacked in the last few games.
