Marcelo Bielsa is ready to give a big chunk his table-topping Leeds United squad a night off when they lock horns with Stoke City again tomorrow night.
Leeds racked up a comfortable 3-0 win at the bet365 Stadium in the Championship on Saturday, keeping up their unbeaten start to the league campaign.
And that means Bielsa can afford to rotate his players for the re-match in the Carabao Cup.
Leeds United square measure eyeing their third consecutive win within the English second tier
and despite the very fact that Wigan’s Championship standing is in nice danger,
we tend to square measure tempted to place our cash on Marcelo Bielsa’s troops.
The Latics didn’t win previous four league fixtures and seeing that their away record is something however smart,
we tend to believe that there’s an enormous worth in counting on the Elland Road outfit.
within the half of the season the Whites defeated the Latics at the DW structure,
that is one more reason why home win ought to be thought of this point out.
