Leeds United: Predicted XI to face Blackburn Rovers

Leeds United: Predicted XI to face Blackburn Rovers - Leeds United News

Leeds United will look to bounce back after being held to a 1-1 draw by bottom placed Luton Town in midweek.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been excellent for the most part during the 2019/2020 campaign and an automatic promotion place is very much on the cards.

The visit to Ewood Park on Saturday will hand the Whites a chance to further enhance their place at the top of the Championship table and it is expected that Bielsa will not make many changes other than replacing Stuart Dallas.

The £2.16m-valued Northern Irishman was excellent in midweek, scoring the vital equaliser against Luton, but it has been confirmed that he will miss the trip to Lancashire through a muscle injury.

Dallas is expected to be replaced by Ezgjan Alioski, who has played at left back before for Leeds during his time at the club.

Liam Cooper and Ben White will continue at the heart of defence, ahead of Illan Meslier, who is deputising for Kiko Casilla at the present time.

Arguably Leeds’ best performer this term Luke Ayling will continue at right-back, playing behind Helder Costa, who will continue on the opposite flank to Jack Harrison.

Kalvin Phillips will continue in the holding role of midfield, whilst Tyler Roberts and Mateusz Klich will play behind Bielsa’s preferred striker option in Patrick Bamford.
