Marcelo Bielsa’s men make the short journey south on Saturday for a lunchtime kick-off against fellow promotion rivals Sheffield United.
The Whites will be aiming to secure three straight victories for the first time since opening three games of the season after two relatively routine home wins against Bristol City and Reading.
The Blades come into the game off the back of an impressive 3-2 win away at Brentford after a previosuly winless month for Chris Wilder’s side.
Leeds haven’t won at Bramall Lane for over 25 years, their last three points in Shoreham secured them the 1st Division title back in 1992, making Saturday’s game a great opportunity to make a statement.
United have been stretched to breaking point in recent weeks, with a seeingly never ending injury list, however, Pontus Jansson returning from a foot problem will ceratainly provide a major boost ahead of the Yorkshire derby.
Here’s how we think Leeds will line-up:
The young stopper has come under heavy criticism in recent weeks after a conceding a string of sloppy goals, however, a late penalty save on Tuesday night has sent a strong message to many doubters.
Similarly to Peacock-Farrell, Dallas takes his fair share of flack but after two solid full-back performaces and a winning goal in midweek, he looks to be finding his feet in a new position.
Back from injury, the big Swede could be crucial in game where United will need to be strong defending crosses and set pieces.
Many peoples MOTM against Reading and is leading by example in an ever changing backline.
Conceded the penalty on Tuesday, but at the same time, set up the goal. His set piece delivery brings a different dimension to the side.
The lynchpin on Bielsa’s team. Back to his usual position just infront of the back four and should help stem the creativity of Blades number ten Mark Duffy.
Will position just ahead of Phillips and bring a solidity to the midfield against a strong attacking Chris Wilder team. Gets the nod ahead of Mateusz Klich as the Pole midfilder has looked a little leggy in recent games after the international break.
Back in the starting XI after six games on the bench. The Spaniard has made an instant impact in each of the last three games and has to be given an opportunity from the start again now.
Along with Phillips, a crucial part of this team. Hernandez provides goals, assists and generally brings a flow to the play.
Growing calls for the Macedonian winger to be dropped after numerous ineffective displays, but Bielsa admires Alisoki’s work-rate and endeavour off the ball in this system.
Was unlucky not to score on Tuesday but looks to be a real number nine under Bielsa. Leads the line.
