Monk makes five changes? Predicted Leeds United side to play Villa

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Aston Villa will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 3rd December 2016 at 17:30. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 11/8, Draw 9/4, Aston Villa 17/10

Leeds United welcome Aston Villa to Elland Road this weekend in their latest Championship match.

The Whites are coming off the back of their 2-0 EFL Cup quarter-final defeat against Liverpool and they will want to put that disappointment behind them in the best possible way.

Leeds are currently fifth in the second tier, pushing hard for promotion back to the top flight, while Villa have been resurgent under new manager Steve Bruce, moving up to 11th in the process.

Leeds are still without Liam Bridcutt and Pablo Hernandez but they will be hoping summer signing Pontus Jansson recovers from the illness that ruled him out against the Reds.

Depending on how other matches go this weekend, a victory for Leeds could take them just six points behind the automatic promotion places, and they certainly have the players to end Villa’s impressive upturn.
