Good News – Izzy Brown should be available to feature for this week’s top-of-the-table clash against current runners up – Norwich.
Here is our lineup prediction. With Pontus back from suspension, it is very likely that Marcelo Bielsa will start the Swedish international. As a direct result of this, it means that in-form Kalvin Phillips will be pushed back into his trademark number 4 role, leaving Forshaw and Klich to play the advanced midfield role.
Consequently, this means that Pablo can now play in his best position, being out wide, parallel to regular starter, Jack Harrison. It is likely that Harrison will be brought off at half time, for Leeds United prodigy, Jack Clarke.
Kemar Roofe will play in the center-forward position in hopes to pick up from some of his lost form, with Patrick Bamford undoubtedly breathing down his neck as he becomes closer to the first-team action.
Barry Douglas is a possibility this weekend however the fact he played just 45 minutes for the under 23’s could mean one of two things. He’s either being preserved for Saturday, or Rob Price was only willing to risk 45 minutes for him. Whether he will be included or not is a complete guess for us at this point, so do not right him off just yet!
Izzy Brown has been massively in-form for the under 23’s, bagging 2 goals in an all-important fixture for them and is very likely to feature for the squad depending on whether or not Bielsa sees him as fit enough. Leeds are paying his wages to Chelsea now which implies that he is in condition to play in the first team squad.
Casilla is likely to keep his spot as the goalkeeper following an impressive performance at Rotherham, making one of the best saves we have ever seen!
Our prediction for this weeks game is 2-1 Leeds.
Goalscorer for Norwich: Pukki
Goalscorers for Leeds: Roofe & Clarke
