Leeds United have the chance to bounce back to the top of the league in midweek.

They travel across Yorkshire to take on Hull City in the Championship, hoping to go back ahead of West Brom.

After losing against Birmingham City and drawing with Sheffield Wednesday, this is the perfect chance for Leeds to return to winning ways.

Here are the three Hull players who pose the biggest threats to Leeds.

Reece Burke

Hull’s defence is new-look and improving with each game they play.

One of their most promising defenders is summer signing Burke, who arrived from West Ham for this season.

The 22-year-old is strong in the air, a good tackler and comfortable on the ball.

He is currently operating as a right-back, but he is able capable of playing in central defence, so Leeds need to try to break through his challenges.

 

Jackson Irvine

Irvine is a strong and physical midfielder who loves to get forward.

He has boundless energy, the ability to carry the ball forward with pace and the desire to get on the end of crosses.

The Australia international, who joined Hull from Burton Albion, is a goal scorer from midfield.

The 25-year-old has three goals in five Championship starts this season and Kalvin Phillips will need to prevent his surging runs.

Jarrod Bowen

Bowen is Hull’s star player at the minute. The academy product has gone from strength to strength since bursting onto the scene last season.

The 21-year-old has scored three goals and registered one assist this season. This follows an impressive haul of 17 goals and two assists last term.

Operating on either wing, Bowen is the main attacking menace that Leeds must deal with tomorrow.
