Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp predicted on Sky Bet’s Facebook live (5:50pm, August 7, 2017) that Leeds United will win against Preston North End this coming weekend.
The Whites will take on Preston at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon, and Redknapp has backed the home team to pick up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 2-1 victory.
“Leeds won last week, didn’t they, (at) Bolton,” said Redknapp on Sky Bet’s Facebook live (5:50pm, August 7, 2017). “It was a brilliant result.
“Preston are decent, but I have gone for a Leeds win. Preston won as well, so that was a good result. I am going to go for a Leeds 2-1 win.”
Leeds will head into the game as favourites, and with home advantage, the West Yorkshire outfit should be able to pick up all three points.
The Whites kicked off their 2017-18 Championship campaign with a 3-2 victory over Bolton Wanderers away from home at the Macron Stadium this past Sunday afternoon.
Preston also won last weekend, as they got the better of Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Deepdale in the Championship.
Alex Neil’s side, though, lost this evening. The Lilywhites suffered a 3-2 defeat to League Two club Accrington Stanley away from home at Wham Stadium in the first round of the EFL Cup.
