Leeds United will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce when they take on Luton Town this weekend after the international break. The Whites are currently placed third on the table, two points behind league leaders West Bromwich Albion.

Luton Town, on the other hand, are going through a torrid time as they have lost their last four games in the Championship and it wouldn’t be surprising if they go down again at Kenilworth Road to Leeds United this time. With the busy part of the season approaching, Bielsa will hope that his players are in top condition and form.

Team News: Eddie Nketiah missed the last two games, and he is unlikely to be available against Luton Town. Captain Liam Cooper also limped off with an injury in the previous game, and he could miss out again having made a comeback not too long ago. Adam Forshaw should be close to returning, but he still isn’t a hundred percent fit. Jamie Shackleton and Ezgjan Alioski are also doubtful.

4-1-4-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Luton Town

Formation (4-1-4-1)

Defence

Kiko Casilla will continue in goal for the time being, but a lengthy ban could be on the cards if he is found guilty of racially abusing Leko. Ben White has emerged as the mainstay at the back, and he will start in a centre back role. Gaetano Berardi will fill in for Liam Cooper again in defence. Stuart Dallas will likely start as the left-back with Alioski still a doubt. Luke Ayling will complete the back four, and he will start on the right side of the defence.

Midfield

Kalvin Phillips will be in his usual defensive midfield role. Mateusz Klich has been a bit off-colour in the past few weeks and Bielsa will hope that his midfielder will get back to his best soon. The Polish ace should start in central areas.

Tyler Roberts has caught the eye after his comeback from injury, and he will be expected to start as the attacking midfielder. Pablo Hernandez could get a chance to start after his cameo against Blackburn. Costa might have to drop out, and the Spaniard will likely start on the right. Jack Harrison should keep his place on the left flank.

Attack

Patrick Bamford was lucky to be starting in the last two games as Nketiah was in line to get his first start in the Championship. Bamford managed to break his goal-scoring drought from the spot against Blackburn and hopefully he can be more clinical in front of goal from now. He should lead the line again.
