Leeds United face off against Everton this Wednesday as they welcome them to Elland Road hoping to have better results in this home encounter. The Whites were rated poorly in their 1-0 loss against Brighton as they couldn’t grab a single point in a highly anticipated fixture. They remain in the fifth position on the League table right below Tottenham Hotspur as they’ve won two of the four matches so far in their campaign.
Jesse Marsch is expected to utilise the 4-2-3-1 formation, as usual, making minimal changes to the starting XI.
4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Everton
Illan Meslier will operate in between the sticks for Leeds after he conceded a goal against Brighton last weekend. Diego Llorente will resume his centre-half partnership with Robin Koch at the heart of Marsch’s backline as they look to collectively stop the opposition in its tracks.
Rasmus Kristensen will operate at right-back while Pascal Struijk features on the other flank as the left-back. They are expected to remain compact in defence and stretch the opposition when they are in the final third.
Leo Hjelde will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions. Luke Ayling and Junior Firpo are still recovering from their injuries, so they will remain doubtful to feature.
Tyler Adams will take the holding midfield position alongside Marc Roca as they look to distribute the ball efficiently in the centre of the park and shield the back four.
Jack Harrison will feature in the left wing position looking to provide support and create enough chances from the wide areas. Daniel James is expected to get in behind the opposition using his pace and agility on the opposite flank.
Brenden Aaronson will feature again as an attacking midfielder as he looks to create some clear-cut goal-scoring chances in front of the goal.
Rodrigo will lead the line against the Toffees in the final third. The Spanish talent has been in great form, so he would be fancying his chances of finding the back of the net.
Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood will have to be content with a place on the bench but might come on in the second half of the game if Leeds are in need of a goal by then.
