‘I would say one, in all honesty’ – Would any Swansea players get in Leeds’ XI? The verdict



Leeds United hit the road when they travel to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea tonight, with both sides looking to hold onto unbeaten league records.

But do any of Graham Potter’s charges have a claim to make it into Marcelo Bielsa’s starting XI?

We discuss…..

Jay Taylor

I would say one, in all honesty.

On current form, Jefferson Montero, for me, would be the one player who would easily make it into the current Leeds side.

He has the work ethic and technical ability that would be an asset to Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

I can’t see anyone else from the current Swans side who could hold a candle to this current crop from Elland Road.

Gary Hutchinson

Right now, no. Leeds have Bamford and Jansson who are probably ‘better’ than their current starting Xi but can’t get in.

When a side is playing and winning like Leeds are, nobody gets dropped.

McBurnie and Celina wouldn’t be far away though, they’d definitely add something to Leeds.

Jay Williams

Ahead of the season, you could have made a case for a number of players but right now, I’m not sure any do.

Tom Carroll would have been my first pick but does he get in ahead of Lewis Baker and Mateusz Klich? I’m not so sure.

Another area would be up front: I’d have taken Oli McBurnie over Kemar Roofe but now I’d be inclined to pick the latter.

The only position I might look at is centre-half, where Mike van der Hoorn could partner Pontus Jansson, although Gaetano Berardi and Liam Cooper have kept things very tight at the back for the Whites.

George Dagless

Leeds would probably have more.

I think Barrie McKay on form potentially does whilst the likes of Tom Carroll and Bersant Celina would push for the midfield options.

The way Leeds have started, though, it is tough to make a case for many of them to get replaced.
