Leeds United will lock horns with West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they try to earn a good result on the road. The Whites managed to secure a 3-1 win over Burnley last weekend which would give them some momentum going into this FA Cup clash at the English capital.

Marcelo Bielsa could stick with the 3-4-3 formation and is expected to make a couple of changes to his first XI for this game.

Defence

Illan Meslier will feature in goal for the Whites after he shipped in one goal versus the Clarets in his last outing. Bielsa could opt for a back three of Leo Hjelde, Rob Koch and Luke Ayling for this game as they try to keep the Hammers at bay throughout the 90 minutes.

Diego Llorente won’t be available for selection as he is suspended after picking up five yellow cards in domestic football.

Midfield

Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich will function as the holding midfielders for Leeds this weekend. Their main focus would be to win the 50-50 midfield battles so that they can create some decent chances for their teammates in the final third.

Junior Firpo will fill in as the left-sided wide player while Stuart Dallas hopes to catch the eye down the right flank.

Crysencio Summerville will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second half if needed.

Attack

Jack Harrison managed to get his name on the scoresheet last weekend, so we can expect him to be a nailed-on starter on the left side of the Leeds’ attack. Raphinha could get the nod to produce an impressive display from the right.

Daniel James will assume the duties of a makeshift centre-forward for the West Yorkshire giants as both Tyler Roberts (suspended) and Patrick Bamford (injury) won’t be available this weekend.

However, Joe Gelhardt is expected to feature on the Leeds bench and could come on to influence the game in the latter stages if the Whites are in need of a goal by then.
