Leeds United and Manchester United will resume their battle at Elland Road on Sunday night hoping to triumph over one another. Their previous encounter in the Premier League resulted in a 2-2 draw, so we can expect fierce competition in this weekend’s league clash.
Jesse Marsch will probably use the same 4-2-3-1 formation although he has been handed fresh injury concerns with Pascal Struijk and Luis Sinisterra going to the treatment room. Marsch would name a strong first XI for this second encounter with the Red Devils.
4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted XI Vs Manchester United
Illan Meslier will continue to feature in goal for the West Yorkshire club hoping to secure a clean sheet in this home encounter. Maximilian Wober 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.
Luke Ayling will act as the right-back while Junior Firpo replaces Struijk 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.
Rasmus Kristensen will look to provide cover for the defensive positions as he takes a spot on the bench.
Weston Mckennie and Tyler Adams will anchor the holding midfield position for Leeds United. They will be tasked with shielding the back four and finding a way to create some decent plays for their teammates in the opponent’s half.
Wilfried Gnonto, Brandon Aaronson and Jack Harrison will form the attacking trio tasked with creating enough chances in the front of the goal and providing support to the frontmen.
Crysencio Summerville will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if Marsch opts to call upon his services.
Patrick Bamford will act as the focal point of the Yorkshire club’s attack. He will have to find ways to pose a threat in front of the opponent’s goal.
Joe Gelhardt and Georgino Rutter will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for an opportunity to catch the eye being impact substitutes if required.
