Leeds United predicted lineup vs Brentford - Premier League

Logo: 90min


Leeds United travel to the capital for a season-defining Premier League game against Brentford on Sunday afternoon.

Lumbered in the relegation zone ahead of this weekend's unified kick-off, Leeds' top-flight future is out of their hands. If Burnley defeat Newcastle it's all over. But if the Clarets earn a draw against the Magpies, Leeds have to record their first victory away to Brentford since 1950 to secure survival.

Here's the XI Jesse Marsch may deploy knowing his side need a point at the very least from Sunday's outing.

Illan Meslier (GK) - If the 22-year-old keeper lines up on Sunday, Meslier would become the youngest Leeds player to start every Premier League match since Gary Kelly was an ever-present in 1995.Robin Koch (RB) - Two decades after his father Harry won the Bundesliga title with Kaiserslautern, Koch Jr. left the same club at the start of the season they got relegated. A transfer request won't help him avoid the drop this weekend.Diego Llorente (CB) - The former Real Madrid youth product has never bettered the tally of three league goals he is currently sitting on this season.Liam Cooper (CB) - With their club captain on the pitch, Leeds have conceded a goal every 69 minutes. Without Cooper, the Yorkshire outfit ship a goal every half an hour.Pascal Struijk (LB) - The 22-year-old may have earned himself a starting berth after snatching a late point against Brighton last weekend with his first goal of the season.Kalvin Phillips (CM) - Of Premier League players with more than a smattering of appearances, the much-missed Phillips ranks second across the division for the number of turnovers forced by closing down an opposition player per 90 (according to FBref).Mateusz Klich (CM) - The Poland international missed just four league games across the previous three seasons but has sat out five this term alone.Rodrigo (AM) - The former Benfica and Valencia forward is guaranteed to record the lowest league finish of his senior career, topping the 14th-place he picked up during his first spell in the Premier League with Bolton Wanderers a decade ago.Raphinha (RW) - In what could be his last game in a Leeds shirt, Raphinha is searching for his first goal after five blanks.Joe Gelhardt (ST) - The pint-sized Liverpudlian has recorded three of his four goals and assists this season in stoppage time.Jack Harrison (LW) -Cristiano Ronaldo.
