Leeds United will welcome Everton at Elland Road on Tuesday night as both teams look to fight it out in search of the three points. The Whites suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend. In contrast, the Toffees picked up a 1-1 draw away at Brentford recently which will give him some confidence ahead of this game.
Leeds United vs Everton: Talking Tactics
Jesse Marsch will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could ask his players to dominate the game and cause a lot of problems for the Everton defenders.
Frank Lampard will set his team up in a 3-4-3 formation and might instruct his men to soak in all the pressure and nick a goal or two on the counter. However, Everton have to defend their penalty box well if they are to stand a chance of bagging the win in midweek.
Liam Cooper and Patrick Bamford are major doubts for this game and will be in a race against time to be fit for this game.
Leeds United Predicted XI
Meslier, Kristensen, Koch, Llorente, Struijk, Adams, Roca, James, Aaronson, Harrison, Rodrigo
Andros Townsend, Ben Godfrey, Yerry Mina, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Andre Gomes and Mason Holgate will all miss this clash because of injuries. Still, Lampard will be expected to name his strongest available first XI for this clash at Elland Road.
Everton Predicted XI
Pickford, Holgate, Coady, Tarkowski, Patterson, Davies, Iwobi, Mykolenko, Gordon, Rondon, Gray
Rodrigo will once again be Leeds’ main man in the final third. He will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for his team up top.
Tyler Adams and Marc Roca will have to put in a good display collectively if the Whites are to come out on top in midweek.
Anthony Gordon and Demarai Gray will have to stretch the pitch out on the flanks if the Toffees want to cause a few problems for the Whites during the 90 minutes.
The defensive performance of Mason Holgate, Conor Coady and James Tarkowski could go a long way in determining the fate of this match.
