Bielsa can rely on Roofe and Bamford at Villa Park

Leeds United have been a force to be reckoned with in the current campaign, with promotion to the Premier League getting closer by the day.  

The Whites will be looking to bring in a couple of quality players in the January transfer window, having already laid down the foundations for success in the first half of the season.

However, Leeds United face a difficult test in their next Championship fixtures as they’ll travel to Villa Park to face Aston Villa. Dean Smith’s side have impressed in recent times and they’ve got their own promotion aspirations, so the Whites will be in for a very tough afternoon.

Nevertheless, Marcelo Bielsa can rely on this PAIR to deliver fans an early Xmas present at Villa Park…

KEMAR ROOFE

Kemar Roofe has made all the headlines at Elland Road in the current campaign, with a very impressive 10 goals and two assists to his name at this moment in time.

Aston Villa have been rather vulnerable in defence at times this season and they conceded two against Stoke City last time out, so Bielsa will be hoping that Roofe can cause them all kinds of trouble by adding to his goals tally.

PATRICK BAMFORD

Patrick Bamford has only just returned from a long injury lay-off, but he managed to find the back of the net against Bolton Wanderers last time out as he bagged the only goal of the game.

Therefore, having had an immediate impact after returning from injury, perhaps he will be provided with the chance to secure a starting place in the side later on today. His link up play and deadly eye for goal could really harm Villa.
