Leeds United get to play last in this gameweek when Crystal Palace head up to Elland Road to try their luck on the new pitch.

We’re looking for our first points on the surface but we’ve got no complaints about the pitch or the level of performance from Leeds against Everton.

However, Mateusz Klich was poor again and we think that Marcelo Bielsa will drop him back to the bench for Monday’s game.

Playing Dallas and Klich in the midfield with Rodrigo out didn’t work and Leeds were much better in the second half of the game on Wednesday.

Klich went off after 69 minutes and was replaced by Tyler Roberts, and we think Bielsa will hand the youngster his first start since the Man City game back in October against Palace.

We think Rodrigo will miss the game on Monday with his groin staring and that a Dallas/Roberts midfield is better than a Dallas/Klich one.

Klich and Roberts started the brilliant game against Man City earlier in the season but Bielsa isn’t going to drop Dallas.

We’d love to see Pablo Hernandez in the number 10 role but we just don’t think that he’s got 90 minutes left in him, and he seems to be well down the pecking order at the moment.

Elsewhere, it’s hard to see any other changes in the line-up from the side that faced Everton.

We’ve had no news of any other injuries and this is the starting XI we expect to see start on Monday night…
