Doukara And Vieira To Start- Predicted 4-2-3-1 Leeds Line-Up To Face Brighton

published :

Following their 2-nil win over Aston Villa at the Elland Road on Saturday, Leeds United will hope to build on that victory and make it 3 league wins in a roll when they visit Falmer Stadium to face Brighton on Friday.

Garry Monk’s side sits in 4th position after 19 rounds of Championship games in which they have won 10, drawn 2 and lost the remaining 7.

How they fare against the 2nd place Brighton & Hove – which they trail by 7 points – will go a long way in determining a lot in The Peacocks’ campaign, as a win against such an EPL promotion contender would be a big boost for Leeds.

For such top-of-the-table clash, here is how Monks could line up his players as they continue to push for a return to the top flight.

Formation : 4-2-3-1

GK – Green

The English veteran shot-stopper has been in goal for Leeds United for every of the Championship games played thus far and will be hoping to keep Brighton’s attackers at bay on Friday.

LB – Taylor

The 23-year-old full-back has also played every of the 1710 minutes in the Championship this term and has weighed in 2 assists.

He will be missing Leeds next game if he gets booked against The Seagulls.

CB – Jansson

The Sweden international has continued his yellow-card earning streak having been booked again Villa just after serving a suspension for 5 bookings.

Should make his 14th appearance of the season on Friday.

CB – Bartley

The English centre back is the 3rd and last Leeds player to have played every minute of the campaign thus far, and having also added 2 goals and 1 assist to his contributions at the back, he remains another unchanged name in Monk’s lineup.

RB – Ayling

The English defender has missed only a game this term and has remained a very vital cog of Leeds defence thus far.

Another sure start awaits him on Friday night.

CM – Vieira

With O’Kane still out injured, the teenage Brazilian has another opportunity to impress after a great game last weekend.

CM – Phillips

The 21-year-old has been impressive at the heart of The Peacocks’ midfield and should get another start as he continues to establish himself in the first team since coming through from the youth ranks.

AML – Doukara

With Pablo Hernández still a doubt, the Senegalese winger should get to play on the left wing as Roofe plays in the centre in the absence of the former Swansea midfielder.

AMC – Roofe

Bagged his first goal of the season the last time out to help open the scoring against Villa, and should continue behind Woods in the lineup.

AMR – Sacko

The young Malian has made 15 starts and appeared as a substitute 4 times.

With a goal and 3 assists to his name, only Wood has had a hand in more goals than the winger for Leeds.

CF – Wood

His 10 goals have been very important to Leeds’ success this term, with his last helping to seal all 3 points at the last minute against Villa.

The English forward will be hoping to continue his fine scoring form against Brighton.
