Luis Sinisterra out long-term as Jesse Marsch denied rotation - Predicted Leeds United starting XI v Bournemouth
Leeds United welcome Bournemouth to Elland Road on Saturday 5th November as they look to string some form together in the Premier League.
Jesse Marsch will be hoping for consistency at Elland Road after that sensational 2-1 win at Liverpool over the weekend ended a dreadful run of form.
The American has been denied the chance to rotate his squad though through haunting news, with Luis Sinisterra now ruled out until likely after the World Cup break with his foot problem.
Illan Meslier rightly took a lot of plaudits at Anfield, but he will want to go one step further and take home a clean-sheet against the Cherries.
Rasmus Kristensen and Pascal Struijk have both been superb recently, and will continue in their roles with Junior Firpo and Luke Ayling left in the dust.
Liam Cooper came in for criticism in Merseyside, but he will captain the side again with Robin Koch alongside him as we finally look for consistency in defence.
Tyler Adams and Marc Roca have been two shining lights in midfield and seeing them shine together have been a joy at times after all of our struggles in that area over recent years.
Brenden Aaronson will be ahead of them once more, with the urge to move him out wide avoided after the success of others in the past couple of weeks.
Crysencio Summerville is that man, with his goals against Fulham and Liverpool seeing him keep his spot with a real chance to cement that whilst Summerville is sidelined.
Jack Harrison will be on the left, although Willy Gnonto will be desperate for more chances to try and prove he is worthy of more minutes after his impressive cameo.
Finishing the line up will be Rodrigo, with Patrick Bamford hung out to dry on the bench and nowhere near good enough or sharp enough to be starting games right now on the evidence we have seen.
Here’s how we expect the Whites to line up at Elland Road…
