Leeds United's predicted line-up v Millwall with Whites first and big attacker call amid change

Leeds United will sign off for the March international break with Sunday’s Elland Road showdown against Millwall – and this is how we think the Whites will line up.

Whites boss Daniel Farke made three changes to his side for last weekend’s Friday night Yorkshire derby at Sheffield Wednesday as winger Willy Gnonto, Archie Gray and Junior Firpo all came back into the team. For what was United’s third game within a week, Sam Byram, Connor Roberts and Dan James all dropped to the bench.

Two of the players brought back into the side then weighed in with goal contributions as Firpo’s gem of a cross set up Bamford to put Leeds ahead on the stroke of half-time. Gnonto then bagged a second Whites goal after the break to seal a 2-0 victory, after which Leeds could look forward to eight days off.

Friday night’s win at Hillsborough put the Whites back into the division’s second automatic promotion spot and defeat for Ipswich Town at Cardiff City on Saturday lunchtime ensured Leeds stayed there. Leaders Leicester City were then held to a 2-2 draw at Hull City, leaving Leeds just three points behind the Foxes. With Leicester on FA Cup duty, the Whites know that a win by two clear goals against Millwall will take them top and this is the XI that we expect to line-up against the Lions.
