The Leeds vs Aston Villa live stream is another vital game for Leeds in their bid to stay in the Premier League — and they won't fancy taking on an Aston Villa side that's currently flying.
Leeds are at rock bottom right now, in terms of confidence if not quite league position. They've lost five league games in a row, conceding 18 and scoring just two. That cost manager Marcelo Bielsa his job, with American Jesse Marsch taking over for the 1-0 defeat against Leicester last weekend.
That poor recent record has coincided with an improvement from Burnley, who could overtake them if they win their game in hand. Everton are also below them, but only by one point and they've played two games fewer.
On the plus side, they'll have forward Patrick Bamford back today after three months out injured. He's on the substitutes bench alongside another forward, Diego Llorente, so Leeds have plenty of firepower available if it's needed.
Aston Villa, in contrast, have won their past two games, scoring six and conceding none. Manager Steven Gerrard has them playing open, attacking football and there's a buzz around the team helped in no small part by the arrival of Philippe Coutinho in January.
Gerrard brings in defender Lucas Digne, who has now recovered from having Covid, but the side is otherwise unchanged from the one which beat Southampton 4-0 at the weekend.
Leeds: Meslier, Dallas, Ayling, Struijk, Firpo, Forshaw, Koch, Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison, James.
Aston Villa: Martinez, Cash, Chambers, Mings, Digne, McGinn, Luiz, Ramsey, Watkins, Ings, Coutinho.
