View: Predicted Leeds starting XI v Burnley
Leeds United secured another big scalp when they beat Tottenham 3-1 on Saturday and will be looking to keep the momentum up for a top-half finish against Burnley this weekend.
And Leed fans could be looking at a very different line-up on Saturday given how the Spurs game panned out.
Both Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha were fit but only made the bench. Both came on and Raphinha set up a fantastic goal for Rodrigo.
Rodrigo hasn’t started since the end of January but he’s ready to come back into the starting XI now.
So, while it might seem odd to be predicting three changes, we really think that Marcelo Bielsa will start all three of them.
Liam Cooper had a knock and missed the Spurs game so even if he’s fit he’ll be on the bench – Bielsa won’t start him after four games out, skipper or not.
It means Pascal Struijk and Diego Llorente getting another game to prove that they should be next season’s number one partnership.
Robin Koch, 24, Tyler Roberts and Mateusz Klich can consider themselves unlucky to drop out – Koch and Klich, in particular, played well last Saturday.
However, Phillips and Raphinha are a class above and will start in a very exciting and attacking line-up on Saturday.
This is the starting XI we expect Marcelo Bielsa to put out against Burnley…
