Leeds United will take on Accrington Stanley as they travel to Wham Stadium on Saturday afternoon for the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Whites come into the match on the back of a lacklustre scoreless draw against Brentford, so they will have to produce a better result in order to advance further into the competition.
Jesse Marsch could opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a couple of changes to the starting XI for this game. Luis Sinisterra could get the nod over Brandon Aaronson to play from the start while Rasmus Kristensen replaces Luke Ayling in the backline.
4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted XI Vs Accrington Stanley
Illan Meslier will continue to feature in goal for the West Yorkshire club hoping to secure a clean sheet in this away encounter. Diego Llorente will form the customary centre-half partnership with Robin Koch at the heart of Marsch’s defence as they try to keep the opposition at bay during the game.
As mentioned earlier, Kristensen will act as the right-back while Pascal Struijk keeps his place on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them would be eager to get forward to stretch the opposition in the final third.
Marc Roca and Tyler Adams will anchor the midfield for Leeds United as they focus on making life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park. They will also have to find a way to create some decent plays for their teammates in the opponent’s half.
Wilfried Gnonto will act as the advanced attacking midfielder tasked with creating enough chances in the final third and setting up his teammates in front of the goal.
Mateusz Klich will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if Marsch opts to call upon their services.
Jack Harrison will operate as a left-sided wide player while Luis Sinisterra hopes to catch the eye from the right flank. Both of them need to be at the top of their game if Leeds are to grab a win in this weekend’s encounter.
Rodrigo Moreno will act as the focal point of the Yorkshire club’s attack. The Spaniard has to find ways to pose a threat in front of the opponent’s goal.
Joe Gelhardt and Patrick Bamford will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to catch the eye as impact substitutes if required.
