Leeds United will welcome Aston Villa at Elland Road on Thursday night as both sides look to go all out for the three points. The Whites suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss at the hands of Leicester City last weekend. In contrast, the Villans managed to earn a dominant 4-0 victory against Southampton in their last league outing which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

Jesse Marsch will set his team up in a 4-2-2-2 formation and could ask his players to defend well inside their half and try to create some clear-cut chances to win this game.

Steven Gerrard could opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to instruct his men to dominate the ball and engineer a few decent opportunities in the final third.

Key Men

Leeds United

Both Raphinha and Rodrigo need to have a good game if the Whites are to score enough goals and emerge victorious in midweek.

Illan Meslier can expect a busy night as he would have to make a few decent saves to keep the home side in the game.

Aston Villa

Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings will carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Villans in the attacking end of the field. John McGinn and Philippe Coutinho will act as the primary creative outlets for Aston Villa in the opponent’s half.
