Leeds News and Form
Leeds are currently on a four-match winning streak in all competitions, not conceding in any of those games. On the weekend they made the trip to Stoke and collected a 3-0 victory. So now with home soil at Elland Road, it is little surprise that the Whites are such strong favourites to win this fixture. The only game that Leeds have not won this season was their opening league fixture when they played out a 1-1 result against Nottingham Forest.
In the first round of this season’s league cup, Leeds took a 3-0 away win at Salford City. Leeds have won six of their last eight League Cup home fixtures (D1 L1) and they have scored at least two goals in eight of their last nine. Their League Cup campaign last season came to an end in the second round as they lost 2-0 at home against Preston.
Stoke News and Form
Stoke are all at sea at the moment after a big-league defeat at home against Leeds on the weekend. That was their second straight defeat in the championship having been beaten in midweek by Preston, who also put three goals past the Potters. In four of their five games played across all competitions this season, Stoke have conceded at least two goals.
In the first round of this season’s League Cup, they made the trip to fellow Championship side Wigan and picked up a 1-0 victory, the only win that they have recorded this season. That victory at Wigan snapped a two-match losing away streak that they were on in the EFL cup. This looks like a bit of a thankless task for them.

Who will win – Leeds v Stoke Predictions
This looks as if it will be a routine home victory for Leeds, who are carrying some fine form with them at the moment. Stoke haven’t been able to deliver at full strength, so it is unlikely that they are going to be too competitive in this one. Home win two-nil.
