The last time Leeds won away at Swansea was 54 years ago, under the great Don Revie. Alan Peacock scored 2 for the Whites with Johnny Giles bagging the other goal of the game to beat the Swans comfortably 3-0. United would achieve promotion that season #lufc
Leeds United visit the Liberty Stadium for the first time since 2011 in search of another win in Swansea, as Leeds haven’t won there since 1964. Swansea are back in the Championship after spending seven years in the top flight, and they will be looking to continue their unbeaten streak, as they go into this match with two wins and a draw in league competition.
Leeds are also unbeaten so far in the league, as the club has won its first four matches in all competitions under Marcelo Bielsa, a club record for a manager in his first four matches with the club, and will be looking to make it four for four in the league and five for five in all competitions.
Pontus Jansson is out of Swansea game. He had a back problem in training yesterday. Bielsa: "We'll see if he can play in the next game." #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) August 20, 2018
Leeds will be without Pontus Jansson, who has a back problem, but should be good for the match against Norwich City on the weekend.
It didn’t sound like there would be a ton of rotation in the side from what Bielsa said in the pre-match press conference yesterday, so expect to see the same lineup as the previous three league matches, with Bailey Peacock-Farrell between the sticks, a back four of Barry Douglas, Liam Cooper, Gaetano Berardi, and Luke Ayling, a midfield of Kalvin Phillips, Mateusz Klich and Samu Saiz, and a front three of Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez, and Gjanni Alioski.
Hopefully the date of one of Tony Yeboah’s best goals will bring Leeds good luck and all three points tonight.
