Predicted Leeds United line-up to face Norwich City in the Championship

Leeds United currently sit comfortably at the top of the EFL Championship table with Norwich City edging closer with every passing week of football action.

Having beaten Roterham United, thanks to two goals by Mateusz Klich, Leeds will be hoping to beat title rivals Norwich in what promises to be a thrilling encounter which could go a long way in deciding the fates of either side.

With Norwich just 3 points behind Leeds at this point, a Leeds win would see them create some daylight between themselves and the chasing pack, which is bound to ease the immense pressure on Marcelo Bielsa.

Team News

Striker Patrick Bamford has recently returned to training following his knee injury and could make the bench for this outing. Goalkeeper Jamal Blackman also remains in the sidelines with shin troubles.
