Leeds United face Brentford in the early kick-off this Saturday.

It should be a highly entertaining contest between two sides who play good football.

Both teams are flying high this season with their impressive brand of football paying off.

The Whites are top of the league but are being hotly pursued by a number of clubs.

Meanwhile, the Bees sit sixth, having failed to win in four games.

Here are three danger men that Leeds need to be careful of when they host Brentford this weekend.

Chris Mepham

Despite his young age, Mepham is a top defensive talent in the Championship.

The 20-year-old stands at 6ft 3in tall and is dominant in the air but also strong with the ball at his feet.

 

Leeds have a talented attack but the four-cap Wales international will be tough to penetrate.

Sergi Canos

Brentford have an exciting young midfield and Canos is one of their best players.

The 21-year-old received his footballing education in the Barcelona and Liverpool academies and it shows.

With impressive skill and an eye for goal, Canos is a real danger man for Leeds to be cautious of.

Neal Maupay

Maupay is the top goal scorer in the Championship and Leeds will be very aware of his talents.

The Frenchman is nippy and has a real eye for goal.

Leeds will need Pontus Jansson on his best form to nullify the threat of the 22-year-old.
