Stoke City v Leeds Utd
Tuesday 27th August 2019 7.45pm | Elland Road
Three days after the Bet365 massacre, the Potters have come back for more! On Saturday goals after the break from Ezgjan Alioski and Patrick Bamford added to Stuart Dallas' first-half strike to give Leeds their fourth win from five games and leave the Potters bottom of the second tier, with a solitary point.nThe pressure is off Leeds who concentrate on the league, yet a big scalp from the Premiership potentially lays in wait for the winners in round three of the Carabao Cup.
Bielsa has made plenty of changes from the weekends team with Douglas, Davis, Shackleton, McCalmont, Clarke, Bogusz, Costa and Nketiah all coming into the starting line-up. Nketiah will be looking to add to his two goals, and push for a starting position at Elland Road on Saturday against fellow promotion prospects Swansea City.
Stoke boss Nathan Jones is between a rock and a hard place, surely, he needs to concentrate about digging his team from the basement of the Championship, though I'm sure another loss may spell the end of his tenure in the Black Country.
Leeds Starting XI:
Casilla, Douglas, Berardi, Davis, Shackleton, Phillips, McCalmont, Clarke, Bogusz, Costa, Nketiah
Subs: Miazek, White, Gotts, Forshaw, Alioski, Harrison, Bamford
