January makeover: Leeds United

January makeover: Leeds United

Leeds United have been one of the top performers in the Championship so far this season, with promotion to the Premier League very much in their sights. 

The Whites have been completely redefined under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa in what has been a very impressive campaign so far. But, there’re still a couple of things that need to change in order for the Whites to really push on and potentially mount a lead at the top of the table.

Indeed, Leeds could definitely do with bringing in one or two players to freshen things up after dropping a number of points prior to the international break. So, Bielsa should already have his eyes on potential additions, with one of them possibly breaking into what is normally a very settled starting XI at Elland Road.

With that in mind, here’s a look at Leeds United’s potential new line-up after January…

LEEDS UNITED’S POTENTIAL POST-JANUARY LINE-UP

Bailey Peacock-Farrell has come on leaps and bounds in the current campaign, so he should definitely keep his place in-between the sticks.

Barry Douglas has been very impressive down the left-hand side since joining from Wolves, while Luke Ayling has chipped in with a number of goals on the opposite flank. Although, the heart of the defence has been a problem at times for Leeds, so Bielsa could look to partner Pontus Jansson with potential January signing Reece Oxford, who hasn’t been able to break into the first team at West Ham United.

Leeds have a very settle midfield but the South American may have to change things slightly, with Kalvin Phillips partnering Mateusz Klich in the middle of midfield, and Samuel Saiz moving out to the left-flank with Jack Harrison operating in his familiar position on the opposite side.

Lastly, the Whites simply can’t ignore how impressive the likes of Kemar Roofe and Tyler Roberts have been so far this season, so Bielsa has to include them both in his side at the pinnacle of the attack.
