Leeds United lost their two best players this summer as Raphinha left to Barcelona, while Phillips signed for champions Manchester City.
Their talisman Patrick Bamford suffered another injury at the beginning of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
The biggest summer signing Luis Sinisterra is yet to feature in the starting lineup as he is still recovering from an injury of his own.
Nevertheless, Leeds are third in the Premier League standings after three rounds of the competition.
Jesse Marsch is doing a fantastic job with this group of players at the beginning of the season. The Peacocks provided their best showing of the new campaign on Sunday, beating the likes of Chelsea 3-0 at Elland Road.
This red-hot Leeds will play host to League One side Barnsley in the second round of Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening.
The hosts are obviously enormous favorites regardless of the fact that Marsch will give rest to most of his starters from the weekend’s win.
Barnsley were relegated to the third division of English football last season and they did not get off to the brightest start to the new campaign either.
The team led by Michael Duff lost three of the inaugural five rounds in League One. They will enter this match off the back of a terrible performance in a 0-3 home disaster against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.
Leeds vs Barnsley Head-to-head
Leeds vs Barnsley Prediction
Leeds are flying high at the start of the season. Young forward Sam Greenwood will likely get the nod from the first minute as Bamford is still sidelined, while Rodrigo (bagged four goals in the opening three rounds) needs a rest.
You can back Greenwood (made two appearances as a sub in the Premier League) to score anytime here for the hosts at the sky-high 3.10 odds. Alternatively, Leeds are 1.75 to win by at least two goals difference on Wednesday.
Leeds vs Barnsley Betting Tips
Sam Greenwood to score anytime @ 3.10 (21/10)
