Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion meet in a mouth-watering EFL Championship matchup at Elland Road on Tuesday night. The Baggies moved to the top of the table after last weekend’s results.

Leeds United News and Form – Will Bielsa’s boys hit back?

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United relinquished top spot after losing 1-0 at Charlton last weekend. The Whites never really got going at The Valley, with Macauley Bonne’s 32nd-minute goal proving to be the difference.

United have now lost three of their last five in all competitions. Leeds were beaten by Stoke City on penalties in the Carabao Cup before losing to Swansea City and Charlton in the league. Overall, United have won five, lost two and drawn two of nine Championship games.

Bielsa’s men have been excellent away from home this season. Before losing at The Valley, Leeds had secured successive away victories at Bristol City, Salford City, Wigan Athletic, Stoke and Barnsley.

At Elland Road, however, the Yorkshire club have picked up just one victory in five league and cup matches. In fact, Leeds have taken five home points from a possible 12, with only five clubs accumulating fewer up until now.

Last weekend’s loss in London was a real setback for Leeds, but can they return to winning ways against the Championship leaders on Tuesday night?

West Bromwich Albion News and Form – Can the leaders win at Elland Road?

Slaven Bilic has done a fine job since arriving at The Hawthorns. The Croatian boss has guided West Bromwich Albion to five wins and four draws from nine Championship fixtures. The Baggies, who sit proudly at the top of the table, are the only team left with an unbeaten record in England’s second tier.

West Brom have been flying of late. Since back-to-back 1-1 draws with Reading and Derby County, the Baggies have taken ten points from their last four, securing wins over Blackburn Rovers, Huddersfield Town and Queens Park Rangers.

Last Saturday, Albion were too good for Mark Warburton’s QPR at Loftus Road. Goals from Nathan Ferguson and Matheus Pereira fired West Brom to a deserved 2-0 win, which lifted them to the top of the table.

Bilic’s boys have been excellent away from home so far, winning three and drawing two of five away matches. Before winning at QPR, West Brom had picked up victories on the road at Nottingham Forest and Luton Town. In fact, Leeds are the only team with a better away record so far.

The Baggies would send out a real signal of intent to their Championship title rivals with victory at Elland Road on Tuesday. The Midlands outfit will be top after ten games with three points in Yorkshire.

Leeds United v West Bromwich Albion Predictions

West Bromwich Albion win: Despite losing two of their last four and taking four points from a possible 12, Leeds are still the bookies’ favourites to win the title come May. United are available at just 6/4 to finish top of the pile. West Brom, meanwhile, are priced at 11/2.

Leeds will be desperate to return to winning ways after coming up short at The Valley in their last outing. However, West Brom have made a stunning start to their season under new boss Bilic, and I fancy the Baggies to pick up a priceless three points on Tuesday. Back the visitors to prevail at 15/4. There are usually goals in this fixture, and the pair should get on the scoresheet at Elland Road. Have a punt on the West Brom win and both teams to score at 7/1.
