Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson thinks Mateusz Klich could be left out of Jesse Marsch’s starting line-up against Crystal Palace on Monday.
The Lowdown: Klich a regular
He played alongside Robin Koch in the 3-0 win over Watford last time out but made way on the hour mark for Kalvin Phillips.
The Latest: Robinson’s reacts to Phillips image
Talking to MOT Leeds News after seeing an image of Phillips back in full training, Robinson, who contributes for Sky Sports, gave his thoughts on how Leeds’ midfield could shape up at Selhurst Park.
“For me, Phillips and [Adam] Forshaw both come in if they’re fit and able to play 90 minutes.
“I know they played well at Watford so I don’t think both Phillips and Forshaw will come back in.
“Forshaw’s been out so he’ll probably have to get his game-time off the bench.
“Phillips should come in alongside either Klich or Koch.
“It’ll probably be alongside Koch if Jesse Marsch is going to play that way again.”
The Verdict: Right call?
Bringing back Phillips from the off could be a wise by Marsch move following Leeds’ 16-day break.
Klich also had an afternoon to forget at Vicarage Road last time out. As per SofaScore, he was Leeds’ worst-rated player in the 3-0 victory, losing possession 16 times and failing to complete any of his attempted long balls.
The central midfielder was also second best in nine of his 12 duels, so it could be a wise move to leave him out of the starting XI at Selhurst Park as Leeds look to take a step closer to safety.
