Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Hull: Evans must make changes

Leeds United 2

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Hull City will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 5th December 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 14/5, Draw 21/10, Hull City 11/10

Leeds United welcome Hull City to Elland Road with the Whites desperate to get back to winning ways after back-to-back defeats against Rotherham United and Queens Park Rangers.

The problem is they are coming up against a Hull side smarting from their 4-1 Capital One Cup defeat to Manchester City, and with just three points separating them from Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion they have all to play for.

As a result Leeds are likely to be in for a tough afternoon and it is up to Evans to pick the players who can overcome the Tigers.

Leeds are not losing games by much and the pressure is on their strikers to deliver the goals, and their midfielders to supply the chances, but after drawing blanks in their last two outings it is surely time Evans made some changes.

With that in mind below is the side we predict each manager will opt for on Saturday:
