Paul Heckingbottom was known as a 4-4-2 man at Barnsley, whereas Leeds under Monk and Christiansen have rigidly stuck to a 4-2-3-1. There’s no question that when Samu Saiz is back from suspension that a 4-4-2 won’t work, he’s our best player and we wouldn’t be getting the best out of him playing like that.
However, the game against Sheffield United is unlikely to be the prettiest of spectacles so we’ll presume Heckingbottom will go with his preferred 4-4-2. With that in mind, this is the team we believe will start on Saturday.
GK – Felix Wiedwald – Felix has been at his best recently so hopefully the change in manager won’t change that. The keeper coach hasn’t changed so that should be beneficial to him.
Into the defence…
