Predicted Leeds XI vs Luton: Bielsa to make two changes, 28 y/o to start

Leeds United will face Luton Town in the Championship on Tuesday at Elland Road. The Whites returned to winning ways after earning a 3-0 win in a crucial game against Fulham last week.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will now be looking to build on the win against Fulham when they face Luton on Tuesday. The Argentine generally doesn’t like to make many changes in his side.
