The potential fresh Leeds defence to take on Stoke on the opening day



There’s a sense of expectation at Elland Road, with Marcelo Bielsa heading into Leeds United ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.  

Bielsa has had a tough start to the summer, with Leeds not as active as he might’ve liked so far in the transfer window.

There is plenty of work for Bielsa to do ahead of the new season, with it widely expected that the 62-year-old will turn to his favoured 3-3-1-3 system.

Should that switch happen, the biggest difference will be Leeds’ use of a three-man defence, with supporters seeing previous coaches play with a flat four.

Rebuilding that defence is going to be amongst Bielsa’s key tasks this month, with the Whites still short of bodies.

Here at FLW, we take a look at how Bielsa’s defensive unit could look when Leeds take on Stoke City on the opening weekend of the Championship season…
