Defensive reshuffle as 19yo wideman earns nod - Birmingham City predicted XI v Leeds United - gallery

Here’s what we predict Birmingham City’s starting lineup to look like for Saturday’s home Championship clash with Leeds United.

Birmingham City are in action for their first home Championship game of the 2023/24 season as they take on Leeds United on Saturday afternoon.

John Eustace and his men will come into this one with heaps of confidence after an impressive 1-1 draw at Swansea City and a 2-0 win at Cheltenham Town.

Leeds are of course one of the best teams in the entire division, though, so Blues will have to be wary and perhaps set up a little cautiously.

With that in mind, we think Birmingham will go for a four-back defence, with a couple of rotations to ensure they are as solid as possible.
