Leeds United will take on Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium this Sunday as they look to secure a win and hope that it would be enough for them to avoid relegation from the Premier League. The Whites managed to earn a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Brighton last weekend, so they will be desperate to secure maximum points on the final day of this league campaign.
Jesse Marsch will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could make one change to his side for this game. Pascal Struijk could fill in at left-back while Junior Firpo drops to the bench.
4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup To Face Brentford
Illan Meslier will feature in goal for the Whites after conceding one goal versus the Seagulls in his last league outing. Diego Llorente will partner Liam Cooper at the heart of Marsch’s defence as they focus on stopping the Bees from finding the back of the net this weekend.
Robin Koch will fill in at right-back while Pascal Struijk hopes to produce another impressive performance as the left-back. Both of them would have to defend their penalty box well if the Whites are to come out on top this weekend.
As mentioned earlier, Junior Firpo will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the full-back positions.
Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich will function as the holding midfielders as they try to gain some control of the battle at the centre of the park.
The gifted trio of Jack Harrison, Rodrigo and Raphinha will play just ahead of them as part of Marsch’s attack. All three of them need to put in a productive performance collectively if Leeds are to emerge victorious this weekend.
Jamie Shackleton will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second half if needed.
Joe Gelhardt will lead the line for the Yorkshire club up top. He has to find a way to cause a few problems for the Brentford centre-backs during the 90 minutes.
Sam Greenwood will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if the Whites are in need of a goal by then.
