Predicted Leeds United starting XI v Tottenham

Leeds United lost to Brighton last week and that really put paid to any hopes of a late push for Europe.

Hopefully, that means the Leeds players can relax, enjoy themselves and get back to playing the thrilling, attacking football that’s been the highlight of the Premier League this season.

We also think it’s going to prompt some changes for Marcelo Bielsa for the game against Spurs.

Rodrigo played 45 minutes for the Under-23s on Monday and we think he was being tested and prepped for a start on Saturday.

If he was, he came through with flying colours and we think that Tyler Roberts will drop out for the Spain international.

Mateusz Klich is still not firing and Jamie Shackleton can come in for him.

We’re hoping that Raphinha is fit and he’ll slot straight back in on the right-wing with Jack Harrison on the left.

Stuart Dallas takes the place of Gjanni Alioksi, who was awful against Brighton, and the rest of the team should stay the same if Kalvin Phillips is fit.

If he isn’t Robin Koch will deputise for him again.

This is the team we’re expecting Marcelo Bielsa to put out on Saturday…
