Leeds United will lock horns with Bournemouth at Elland Road this Saturday night as they try to produce a similar result as last weekend. The Whites recorded a huge 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the away encounter last weekend, so they will be looking to build on the momentum and grab another victory.
Jesse Marsch will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could name the same first XI for this match. The Leeds boss is expected to keep changes to a minimum for this game.
4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted XI Vs Bournemouth
Illan Meslier will function in goal for the West Yorkshire club after shipping in just one goal versus the Reds in his last Premier League appearance. Robin Koch will once again partner Liam Cooper at the heart of Leeds’ backline as they try to stop the opposition from scoring throughout the game.
Rasmus Kristensen would try to put in a solid display at right-back while Pascal Struijk will fill in on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them need to stay strong and keep their shape defensively if the Whites are to come out on top in this home encounter.
Luke Ayling and Junior Firpo will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they provide cover for the defensive positions.
Marc Roca and Tyler Adams will anchor the holding midfield positions for Marsch’s side as they try to establish their superiority over the Cherries at the centre of the park.
Crysencio Summerville, Brenden Aaronson and Jack Harrison will play just ahead of them as part of Leeds’ attack. All three of them need to work together collectively if the Whites want to create enough opportunities in front of the goal.
Mateusz Klich will be named on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the second half if Marsch decides to call upon his services.
Rodrigo will probably get another chance to impress as the centre-forward for the Whites. He would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet again by producing a good performance in this weekend’s contest.
Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt will have to be content with a place on the bench as they await a chance to make an impact in the latter stages of the contest if Leeds are in need of a goal by then.
