Leeds United continue their Premier League campaign on Sunday afternoon, hosting Leicester City at Elland Road.

Marcelo Bielsa's side have started the campaign in dire form, currently sitting one place above the drop zone, three points clear of Burnley in 18th. However, the Whites' performances have picked up somewhat in recent weeks and they've found victory twice in their last four - including last time out at Norwich.

They host a Leicester side who have really disappointed so far. A mixed bag of results sees them lie in mid-table obscurity and looking below-par compared to other sides chasing European football. Here's who Bielsa could opt for to get a huge result...


Leeds United predicted lineup vs Leicester City - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Illan Meslier (GK) - Might have felt annoyed at missing out on a France call-up in Mike Maignan's injury-enforced absence but remains Bielsa's number one at Leeds.

Diego Llorente (CB) - Hasn't performed at the highest level in recent weeks but, given the injury woes at Leeds at the moment, he'll certainly feature once more.

Pascal Struijk (CB) - Has been one of Leeds' best performers this campaign and, at just 22, seems a natural leader.

Liam Cooper (CB) - The skipper hasn't missed a minute of league action this season and he'll be hoping for a win before he heads off on international duty with Scotland.

2. Midfielders

Raphinha (RM) - The injection of spark and star quality in this side. Brightens up the field every time he touches the ball and, following his brilliant goal at Carrow Road, will definitely start this one.

Stuart Dallas (CM) - The ever-dependable Dallas has featured in all ten of Leeds' Premier League outings so far and will likely make it 11.

Kalvin Philips (CM) - An undroppable at the heart of this side, Philips hasn't been on top form this campaign but is such an influence for the Whites.

Mateusz Klich (CM) - Jamie Shackleton has been brilliant for Leeds over the past few weeks but will have to face late fitness tests this weekend, In his place, Klich could feature.

Daniel James (LM) - Not the greatest of starts to his Leeds career but he has so much more to give, that's for sure. Will look to build on his first goal involvement after assisting Raphinha last time out.

3. Forwards

Rodrigo (ST) - Has stepped up and been a top performer in Patrick Bamford's absence from the front line. Two goals in his last two makes him indispensable at the moment.

Jack Harrison (ST) - Eight appearances but still no goal contributions in the Premier League for Harrison. Has been off the boil this campaign.
