Vital Midfielder Missing – Leeds United Predicted Lineup vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Tyler Adams, not in the Leeds United predicted lineup

Javi Gracia’s press conference earlier in the week revealed that Leeds United are due to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers without star midfielder Tyler Adams. Take a look at Last Word on Football’s Leeds United predicted lineup for the Premier League clash with Wolves this weekend. 

Leeds United Predicted Lineup vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

How Leeds United Have Lined-up Recently

Leeds United have lined up in a 4-4-2 formation under Javi Gracia, converting into a 4-2-2-2 in the press. Illan Meslier starts in net, with Luke Ayling and Junior Firpo playing as full-backs. Robin Koch and Max Wober start in the centre of the back line, with Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie typically being first choice to protect the back line.

As of late, Jack Harrison has been starting on the left wing opposite Crysencio Summerville on the right. Patrick Bamford plays as a centre-forward with Brenden Aaronson dropping in behind as a shadow striker.

Leeds United Recent Form and Tactics

The Whites’ last three matches have seen the club secure four points, a significant improvement under Javi Gracia. The Yorkshire side defeated a fairly weak Southampton side before being fairly unlucky in a loss against Chelsea, before holding Brighton to a 2-2 draw.

Such a turnaround in form is a result of adjusting tactics depending on the opponent they come up against. Holding firm without excessively pressing the Seagulls’ back-line was essential to stopping the Brighton side cutting through Leeds United, securing an all-important point at Elland Road. Loyal Whites will hope to keep this flexibility and form up in the Midlands this weekend.
