Leeds United team news as Jesse Marsch names four debutants for Wolves opener

  • by

Jesse Marsch has named his first Leeds United line-up for the new season as the Whites face Wolves at Elland Road. United will be keen to get off to a fast start to their new Premier League campaign by picking up three points and turning in an encouraging promise.

The head coach has named four debutants this afternoon with Rasmus Kristenen, Marc Roca, Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson all set to start the game and they’ll all be keen to impress. Aaronson was arguably Leeds’ best against Cagliari last weekend, picking up three assists and he’ll be keen to replicate that performance in his first competitive appearance.

Kristensen will look to be an attacking threat from right-back, while Adams and Roca will hope to impress alongside each other in the middle of the park. Pascal Struijk gets the nod at left-back, while Patrick Bamford will lead the line once more as he looks to shake off his injury hit campaign last time around.

The striker scored twice last Sunday and he’ll aim to start the new season with a bang by bagging on his first league appearance since March. Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood and Crysencio Summerville are all on the bench following the announcement of their contract renewals.

Archie Gray and Darko Gyabi are also on the bench despite playing 60 minutes for the under-21s on Friday night at Derby.
