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



With a new manager at the helm, Leeds United fans are expecting a different approach last year.

Both Thomas Christiansen and Paul Heckingbottom failed to inspire the Whites into contention for promotion, with a mid-table finish the reality at Elland Road.

Now that experienced, maverick coach Marcelo Bielsa has taken over, the near future is unpredictable but exciting for Leeds fans.

Who will they sign? Will Bielsa’s unorthodox tactics pay off in the Championship?

These are questions which remain unanswered but the opening game of the season against Stoke City will be a real test and we might start to see some answers by then.

Playing in Bielsa’s preferred 3-3-3-1 formation, Leeds will potentially line-up with a two-layered midfield which has not yet been seen before in the Championship.

Here are the wing-backs, holding midfielder, central attacking midfielder and two inverted wingers in the middle for Bielsa.
