Leeds United predicted XI ahead of crucial Nottingham Forest clash

Nottingham Forest are back in Premier League action tonight (7:45pm) when they face Leeds United at Elland Road.

It is a significant game for both teams who are in a fierce relegation battle, with just one point separating them. Forest have been more reliant on their home form however, having collected just six points on the road.

Both sides were winless at the weekend, with the Reds drawing 1-1 to Wolves while Javi Garcia's side were thrashed 4-1 to leaders Arsenal. Steve Cooper's men came away 1-0 winners in their first meeting at the City Ground earlier this season, however.

With that being said, NottinghamshireLive takes a look at the predicted XI for the clash at Elland Road...

Ilan Meslier is expected to stay between the sticks, along with a backline of four consisting of Junior Firpo, Pascal Struijk, Robin Koch, and Rasmus Kristensen.

Weston McKennie, who was rested at the weekend, could line up alongside Marc Roca and Jack Harrison in midfield. Crysencio Summerville was Leeds' best performer at the Emirates and will therefore be granted another start in attack.

Both Luis Sinisterra and Brenden Aaronson could make way for Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford up front.

Predicted Leeds line-up: Meslier; Kristensen, Koch, Struijk, Firpo; McKennie, Roca; Summerville, Harrison; Bamford, Rodrigo.
