Leeds United vs Luton Town Prediction: Leeds United line-up
Leeds United return to Championship action on Saturday after the international break when they travel to Luton Town.
The Whites are third in the Championship table, two points behind West Brom and only behind Preston North End on goal difference. They are unbeaten in their last five league games and Marcelo Bielsa will be aiming to stretch it to six games on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Luton Town are struggling at the moment, having lost their last four league games.
Liam Cooper pulled out of the Scotland squad due to a slight tear in groin area during the game against Blackburn Rovers. However, he could be fit for the trip to Luton.
Stuart Dallas was absent in Northern Ireland’s 6-1 thrashing by Germany and remains doubtful for the upcoming game. Eddie Nketiah has missed the last two games with a lower abdominal injury and is set to be sidelined against Luton.
The likes of Jamie Shackleton, Adam Forshaw and Ezgjan Alioski are all likely to miss out again.
Probable Leeds United XI
Kiko Casilla (GK)
Casilla should continue in goal for Leeds against Luton Town.
Luke Ayling (RB)
Ayling has done well since returning from injury and should keep his place in the team.
Ben White (CB)
The on-loan centre-back has been fantastic for the Whites. He is a certainty to start against Luton.
Gaetano Berardi (CB)
With Cooper nursing a groin tear, Berardi is expected to partner White at the back on Saturday.
Barry Douglas (LB)
With Alioski and Dallas injured at the moment, Douglas is likely to start at left-back against Luton.
Kalvin Phillips (CDM)
Perhaps one of the first names on the team sheet, Phillips will look to take control of the game from the first whistle.
Helder Costa (RW)
Costa did well against Blackburn in the last game but he’ll need to bring consistency to his game if he is to keep his place in the team.
Mateusz Klich (RCM)
Klich brings a lot of energy and intensity to the Leeds team. The Pole is a certain starter on Saturday.
Tyler Roberts (LCM)
Roberts is almost certain to partner Klich in an advanced role in the midfield behind the striker.
Jack Harrison (LW)
Since the end of September, Harrison has arguably been the Whites’ most effective player. He will retain his place in the team.

Patrick Bamford (ST)
