Leeds United team news and predicted XI vs Leicester City

All the latest ahead of Leeds United’s clash with Leicester on Tuesday

Leeds United host Leicester City in a relegation six-pointer at Elland Road on Tuesday night, hoping for a change of fortune from their recent results.

Javi Gracia’s side have lost four of their last five Premier League games after a promising start under the Spaniard, and have conceded 13 goals in their last three games.

They now sit just a point above the drop zone, with Leicester City below them, themselves only out of the relegation places on goal difference.

Three points for either side would rag them clear of that bottom group, with Leicester moving to 32 points and Leeds to 33, while the other side would be left to battle it out with Everton and Bournemouth for the final relegation spots.

In many ways, then, it is a must not lose game for either side, but a win would be massive in the context of the relegation race.

Here’s how we expect Gracia to set out his side, and the latest team news from Elland Road.

Predicted XI

Team News

Tyler Adams remains sidelined with a hamstring injury picked up before the international break, and he is looking more and more unlikely to play any part in the remainder of their battle against the drop.

Meanwhile, Stuart Dallas is also out, with no known return date after picking up a thigh injury.

Striker Patrick Bamford returned to the squad as a substitute in their most recent defeat to Fulham, having missed the 6-1 humiliation against Liverpool with a knock, and could be in line to start against the Foxes, while Wilfried Gnonto is also available for the Elland Road outfit.
