Leeds United return to action on Saturday after the international break when they travel to Luton Town.
The Whites are third in the Championship table, two points behind West Bromwich Albion, and only behind Preston due to goal difference.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men have been unbeaten in their last five league games, and could stretch that to six games on Saturday when they face a struggling Luton side. The hosts have lost their last four league games, and will go into the game as underdogs.
Leeds, meanwhile, will want to push the leaders and a win for them and results going in their favour could put them top of the league.
Early Leeds United Team News
Full-back/winger Stuart Dallas is a doubt, having missed Northern Ireland’s 6-1 loss to Germany in the international break. Jamie Shackleton, Adam Forshaw, and Ezgjan Alioski are all doubts for the game, while Football Insider have reported that Eddie Nketiah has been ruled out for the game against Luton Town.
Liam Cooper was taken off against the game against Blackburn and pulled out of international duty, but he should return to the lineup.
Let’s take a look at the possible Leeds United lineup for the game against Luton Town:
Predicted Leeds United Lineup vs Luton Town
Kiko Casilla should continue in goal for Leeds against Luton Town.
The Whites’ best centre-back partnership this season has been that of Ben White and Liam Cooper, and the duo should start at the back for Leeds against Luton.
Stuart Dallas played at left-back last time around due to the injury to Alioski, but if neither of them are fit, Barry Douglas should return to the Leeds United lineup. Luke Ayling should retain his place over on the right side at right-back.
Kalvin Phillips should start in the base of midfield for Leeds. The young midfielder is currently on four yellow cards and risks a one-match ban if he gets another yellow.
Jamie Shackleton and Adam Forshaw are doubts for the game, which means that Tyler Roberts should start alongside Mateusz Klich in the Leeds United lineup.
Pablo Hernández, who signed a new two-year deal with Leeds recently, should return to the Leeds United lineup, playing on the right, with Jack Harrison set to feature on the left.
Eddie Nketiah’s injury means that Patrick Bamford will start as the striker once again.
