Eddie Gray predicts Leeds v Burton, states likely team selection
By Derek Smithson
Eddie Gray believes that Thomas Christiansen will name an unchanged Leeds United side against Burton and expects them to get the three points.
The Whites host Burton on Saturday in the Championship and will be aiming to keep the unbeaten start to the season going.
They are currently third in the league table and went into the international break on the back of four consecutive clean sheets.
The Yorkshire giants recorded a convincing 2-0 away against Nottingham Forest in their last game and Leeds legend Gray is expecting the same side to line up against Burton.
“I don’t think Thomas will change it, I think a few of the new boys will be on the bench but I can’t imagine him changing a side that has been successful especially when you go somewhere like Forest and win the game,” he told LUTV.

Gray went on to make a confident prediction that Leeds will record a 3-0 win and that would keep them firmly in the promotion race at this early part of the season.
Christiansen has made a dream start to life at Elland Road and has strengthened his squad considerably.
The manager could be tempted to hand some debuts to new signings Pawel Cibicki and Pierre-Michel Lasogga, who have arrived to add some extra firepower in attack.
However, Gray expects attacker Kemar Roofe to retain his place as Leeds’ centre-forward and he will need another strong display to keep his place in the starting XI moving forward.
