3 Luton Town players Leeds United must be wary of this weekend

Published

on

Marcelo Bielsa’s men will likely be heading out of the international break in high spirits, having picked up back-to-back victories at the start of November and with a favourable run of games ahead.

It’s true no game is an easy game in the Championship but promotion contenders Leeds United face four of the division’s bottom eight sides in their next four games and should feel confident of taking 12 points out of 12.

They will be looking to make it three wins in three when they face Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.

Leeds United currently have goalkeeper Illan Meslier on loan at Elland Road until June 2020, but which club is he on loan from?

The Hatters are just one point and one place above the relegation zone and have won just once in their last seven games.

That being said, Bielsa will not be taking Saturday’s opponents lightly and nor should he, as Graeme Jones’ side have some dangerous players.

With that in mind, here are three players that the Whites must be wary of this weekend.

James Collins

Despite having been prolific in the lower leagues of English football, there were question marks ahead of the season over whether the 28-year-old could cut it in the Championship.

So far, he has proved up to the challenge, grabbing five goals and an assist.

Collins is fantastic in front of goal, be it with his feet or his head, and is someone the Leeds backline will have to be aware of.

The Irishman is in a little bit of a goal drought but you always have to be wary of a striker like him.

Izzy Brown

The Whites will be coming up against a familiar face in Chelsea loanee Brown. He made very little impact at Elland Road in the 2018/19 campaign but has looked a different player entirely for Luton this season.

The playmaker has been arguably the Hatters most important creative player and is their leading provider of assists–with five to his name in the Championship.

It is going to be interesting to see the matchup between the 22-year-old and Leeds defensive midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who will likely have the job of picking him up.

Harry Cornick

The 24-year-old has been a bit of a surprise package for the Hatters this season and has become a key asset in the final third.

No player has made more goal contributions for Jones’ side than Cornick, who has five goals and two assists to his name.

Ben White and co. might have the best defensive record in the Championship but they shouldn’t underestimate the forward.
