Leeds United managed a commendable draw against Brentford at Griffin Park. With Fulham dropping points against Millwall, the Whites still occupy the second spot on goal difference. They will square up against Bristol City at Elland Road this weekend. The Robins are also in the thick of things in the playoff race as they are occupying the seventh spot on the table.
The Whites had managed a comfortable 3-1 win when the two teams faced each other in the return fixture this season. United have had a bad last two months, but things are still in their hands if they want to stay on the coveted second spot.
Team News: Tyler Roberts missed the last game because of a knock, and he is likely to be assessed closer to the matchday. Adam Forshaw is the only other significant absentee for the Yorkshire side. Forshaw is set to undergo hip surgery. He is going to be unavailable for the rest of the season.
4-1-4-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Bristol City
Marcelo Bielsa is known to give his players a longer rope, but time seems to be running out for Kiko Casilla after his blunder against Brentford. He has been a liability for some time, and many would want to see Illan Meslier start in goal. However, Bielsa recently backed Casilla to begin again. Hence, the Spaniard is set to start in goal.
Stuart Dallas is expected to start over Barry Douglas and Ezgjan Alioski at left-back. Ben White and Liam Cooper are going to form the centre back partnership once again. Luke Ayling will play is his usual right-back position where he will look to support his team in attack.
The three-game forced break for Kalvin Phillips did wonders to him as he came back with a strong performance against Brentford. He is expected to start in the defensive midfield position. Jack Harrison is a nailed-on starter on the left-wing.
Mateusz Klich is also likely to keep his place in the middle. Pablo Hernandez hasn’t been at his best, but we expect him to start again in midfield. Helder Costa has been a significant disappointment this season, but Bielsa is likely to back him again to begin on the right flank. With Ian Poveda not even making it to the bench in the last few games, he is unlikely to be in contention to start.
Jean-Kevin Augustin has made cameo appearances, but Patrick Bamford will inevitably lead the line for the Whites.
