Should Stuart Dallas get a rare start for Leeds against Brentford?

Leeds Untied host Brentford on Saturday afternoon and will be hoping to ensure they go into the international break still on top of the Championship table.

The Whites go into the weekend fixture on the back of four points from their last two matches, but could manager Marcelo Bielsa opt to rotate amid a hectic fixture list?

Stuart Dallas is one player that has mainly been used as a substitute this season by the Yorkshire giants, but should he feature in the starting XI against Brentford?

 

The 27-year-old winger fits the Bielsa mould with his high intensity and has shown in previous years he’s got the quality to make a positive impact at Elland Road.

He’s found himself down the pecking order for wide areas this campaign, with Jack Harrison and Ezgjan Alioski cementing their positions in the side.

But Alioski has been guilty of having mixed form this season, as at times his passing can be slack and he can be caught offside on numerous occasions.

The 26-year-old has been directly involved in five goals already this season and is clearly a big favourite of Bielsa due to his endeavour, but he could perhaps do with a place on the bench against Brentford to keep him on his toes.
