Predicted Leeds United starting XI v Wolves

Leeds United welcome Wolves to Elland Road on Saturday afternoon for their latest Premier League clash.

The Whites will be desperate for a win after yet another defeat against Southampton last weekend in what was a shocking display.

Marcelo Bielsa will be hoping for better news on the injury front too, with a number of his key men sidelined for that one.

Illan Meslier will continue in goals, and he will be hoping for a much quieter afternoon this time around.

The back four won’t change ahead of him due to Junior Firpo’s injury problems expecting to keep him out for another two weeks.

That means Jamie Shackleton and Stuart Dallas will continue in the full-back roles, with Diego Llorente and Liam Cooper also starting.

Kalvin Phillips should hopefully return in the first huge boost, having travelled to Southampton with the rest of the squad.

Mateusz Klich will start ahead of him, and Bielsa will be demanding much more in each third of the pitch from the Pole.

Rodrigo will drop deeper into the playmaker role, with his experiment as the number nine completely failing and leading to zero goals.

Dan James will be preferred to Jack Harrison who will be dropped to make room for our Brazilian superstar Raphinha, who will once again have the pressure to guide us to three points on his shoulders.

Finishing the lineup will be Patrick Bamford, who was expecting to be back on the grass this week and hopefully his month on the sidelines was enough for him to recover for Saturday.

Here’s how we expect the Whites to line up…
