Leeds United are looking to make it two wins in a row when they travel to Bramall Lane on Sunday.

And despite Chris Wilder’s side impressing in the Premier League since they were promoted, they’re struggling at the moment.

Five defeats on the bounce in the league, one goal scored, none this season and out of the EFL Cup.

Worse, they’re without John Egan after he was sent off in the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

That leaves Marcelo Bielsa with a big call to make. Rodrigo didn’t look comfortable in the No 10 role on Saturday and was replaced by Tyler Roberts at half-time.

Roberts did marginally better and we think Bielsa will use him on Sunday rather than risking Rodrigo losing any more confidence.

Dropping Rodrigo comes with its own problems and headlines but Bielsa will do what he feels is right for the team.

We think the rest of the side will stay the same despite the shaky start at the back that’s seen Leeds record the joint-worst defence in the league so far.

Robin Koch and Liam Cooper will get another chance to put things right at the back whether Diego Llorente is announced as a Leeds United player today or not.

This is the side that we think can win another three precious points on Sunday…
