MOT View: Bielsa to make exciting change with PL in sight – Predicted Leeds XI v Swansea
Change a winning Leeds United side? Change a side that’s just hammered a side 5-0?
Marcelo Bielsa isn’t known for being unpredictable but we think that he will finally unleash Pablo Hernandez from the start against Swansea.
The midfield maestro said he wasn’t 100% ahead of the 1-1 draw against Luton but he was absolutely back to his sparkling best against Stoke.
He replaced an anonymous Tyler Roberts at half-time and treated the 15,000 Elland Road crowdies to a world-class display.
Leeds are on the brink of escaping from the Championship and this is the time to put the foot down on the pedal and smash into the Premier League.

On this sort of form he’s the best player Leeds have got and they need to be at their best to get all three points from Swansea.
They’re just one point off the play-offs and have everything to play for.
The last thing Leeds want is to be sucked back into a race for the top-two.
Hernandez is the exciting change that Bielsa should make, with the rest of the team staying the same.
There’s be no debate about Patrick Bamford this time around. The striker is looking to score in three consecutive games for the first time this season and we wouldn’t bet against him given the form that he and Leeds are in.
This is the starting XI we expect Bielsa to put out for the trip to Wales on Sunday…
