Aston Villa will welcome Leeds United at Villa Park on Wednesday night as both sides look to go all out in search of the three points. The Villans managed to secure a 1-0 win over Everton before the international break. In contrast, the Whites suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United in their last league outing.

Aston Villa Vs Leeds United: Talking Tactics

Steven Gerrard will opt for a 4-3-2-1 formation and could ask his players to move the ball along with conviction in midfield and create enough chances to win this game.

Marcelo Bielsa will set his team up in a 4-1-4-1 formation and is expected to ask his men to press Everton high up the field and try to expose their defensive weaknesses on the counter.

Leeds United

Patrick Bamford, Junior Firpo, Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips will all miss this contest due to injuries. However, Jamie Shackleton, Charlie Cresswell and Adam Forshaw should be back for this game.

Leeds United Predicted XI

Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Koch, Dallas; Klich, Forshaw; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison; James

Key Men

Aston Villa

Ollie Watkins will once again be Gerrard’s main man up top. He will need to have a good game if the Villans are to collect all three points in midweek.

The effectiveness of Matty Cash and Lucas Digne out on the flanks could have an impact on the outcome of this game.

Leeds United

Raphinha is expected to be Leeds’ primary weapon going forward. The Brazilian winger has the potential to be a match-winner, so all eyes will be on him to deliver a productive display on the right flank.

Both Diego Llorente and Robin Koch need to have a good game on the defensive end of the field if Leeds are to come away with something from Villa Park.
