Leeds United team news and predicted XI vs Brighton

The Elland Road side welcome high flying Brighton on Saturday

Javi Gracia and Leeds United are looking to build some momentum in an attempt to steer themselves clear of the relegation zone in the remaining games of the season, but that will be a tough ask as they welcome a Brighton side that are chasing a European dream.

The Yorkshire side fell to a 1-0 defeat against Chelsea last weekend, a game that left them out of the relegation zone solely on goal difference, and with just one win in their last five Premier League outings.

A win on Saturday in front of a home crowd, however, could lift them as high as 15th and instill real belief that a great escape could be on.

Here’s how we expect the Elland Road outfit to line up, and the latest team news from Javi Gracia’s side.

Team News

Typically tight-lipped Javi Gracia gave little away ahead of his side’s clash with the Seagulls, but hinted that Rodrigo and Luis Sinisterra could have some part to play this weekend, though it remains touch and go, after training with the squad.

“In the next training session we will evaluate the situation – whether they help us in the next game or it’s better to wait”, he told the media.

There may be further good news too, with Liam Cooper recovering well from a muscle injury and potential able to be named in the matchday squad.

However, Leeds are expected to be without both Adam Forshaw and Stuart Dallas, with neither having been handed a return timeframe.
