Leeds United will entertain Aston Villa at Elland Road this Sunday afternoon as they focus on collecting maximum points at home. The Whites suffered a poor 5-2 loss away at Brentford at the start of this month which has completely drained their confidence ahead of this weekend’s clash versus the Villans.

Jesse Marsch will set his men up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could be inclined to make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Patrick Bamford, Liam Cooper and Rasmus Kristensen are expected to play from the start against Steven Gerrard’s men this Sunday.

4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup To Face Aston Villa

Defence

Illan Meslier will play in goal for Leeds despite conceding five goals in his last Premier League outing. Liam Cooper will function alongside Robin Koch at the centre of Leeds’ defence as they look to stop the Villans from finding the back of the net this weekend.

Rasmus Kristensen will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Pascal Struijk gets a chance to impress from the left-back position. Both of them would be given the freedom to express themselves in the opponent’s half so that they can offer enough support to the front players.

Diego Llorente will be available for selection on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.

Midfield

Marc Roca and Tyler Adams will anchor the midfield for the Whites as they try to win the 50-50 battles at the centre of the park.

Jack Harrison is expected to assume the duties of the left-sided wide player while Luis Sinisterra focuses on putting in a productive performance from the right flank.

Brenden Aaronson will function in the number ten position and could be given the responsibility of creating some decent chances in the final third.

Mateusz Klich will be named on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to impress in the second 45 minutes if needed.

Attack

Patrick Bamford will lead the charge for the West Yorkshire club on the attacking end of the field. He has to find a way to cause a few problems for the Aston Villa centre-halves this weekend.

Rodrigo is unlikely to recover in time for this game versus the Villans this Sunday. However, Joe Gelhardt should be fit to start on the bench but might come on to catch the eye in the latter stages if Marsch decides to call upon his services.
