Javi Gracia is looking to fuel further belief at Leeds United tomorrow with a clash against Crystal Palace at Elland Road.

Leeds have recorded 10 points from a possible 18 since Gracia replaced Jesse Marsch as the club’s head coach.

On Tuesday night Leeds moved to 13th in the Premier League table, coming from behind to beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 at Elland Road.

Backing that up on Sunday with a win will move Leeds ahead of Crystal Palace in the Premier League standings and beyond 30 points for the season.

Gracia gives very little away when it comes to team news and the club’s injury situation.

However, we know that Tyler Adams, Adam Forshaw and Stuart Dallas are the long-term absentees, the absence of Adams being the key one at this moment.

Max Wober is another player that’s not featured this side of the international break and might miss out again.

Willy Gnonto could have a role from the bench, though, having returned to the matchday squad against Forest.

Predicted Leeds XI v Crystal Palace

As our graphic above shows, it’s much of the same when it comes to the starting line-up in terms of system and nine of the 11.

The two changes we might see come in the form of Rasmus Kristensen and Rodrigo Moreno.

Kristensen could return at right-back ahead of Luke Ayling for rotation purposes, joining Robin Koch, Pascal Struijk and Junior Firpo in the back-four ahead of Illan Meslier.

Marc Roca and Weston McKennie should hopefully continue as the club’s midfield pivot after good performances against Forest.

The attacking trio of Luis Sinisterra, Brenden Aaronson and Jack Harrison should be ahead of that pair, having got a lot of joy at Elland Road on Tuesday.

Rodrigo returns to lead the line and start his first game since January, replacing Patrick Bamford after an enormous shift leading the line midweek.
