Leeds United will look to carry on with their winning run as they host Cardiff City at Elland Road this weekend after securing a 2-0 win against Hull City recently. Wigan Athletic did the Whites favour as they held West Brom to a draw and United were able to grab the top spot in the Championship albeit on goal difference.
Cardiff City were expected to be one of the challengers for promotion, but they are languishing on the 9th spot currently. They had built some momentum with a three game-winning run, but they recently succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against Brentford. United should go in as the favourites as they have won seven games on the bounce and defensively, they don’t look like conceding.
Team News: Adam Forshaw and Tyler Roberts are going to be unavailable due to injury issues. Captain Liam Cooper is also a significant doubt. Jamie Shackleton is struggling with a muscular injury, and he too would be doubtful for this encounter.
Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Cardiff City
Kiko Casilla has been reliable in goal this season, and he will continue between the sticks with a ban looming large if he is found guilty of racial abuse allegations. Gaetano Berardi might continue to fill in for Liam Cooper if the captain fails to recover. Ben White has been the mainstay in defence this season, and he should start in the centre back role. Luke Ayling will likely operate in the right-back role. Stuart Dallas might get the nod ahead of Ezgjan Alioski at left-back.
Kalvin Phillips will be in his typical defensive midfield role. In central midfield, Mateusz Klich should start. He will likely be partnered by Pablo Hernandez, who hasn’t been at his best of late. Helder Costa has shown some signs of improvement recently, and he will get another chance to impress from the right flank. Jack Harrison has emerged as a consistent performer this season, and he has undoubtedly shown improvements in his second spell with Leeds United. He is likely to begin on the left flank.
With January transfer window approaching, time seems to be running out for Eddie Nketiah. He could be sidelined again given Bielsa’s preference for Patrick Bamford. The former Middlesbrough striker has done looked good in the last few games as he has been leading the line well with his hold up play and intelligent runs. He should start upfront again.
