Leeds vs Aston Villa is a massive game for the hosts at Elland Road on Thursday (watch live, 2:45pm ET on Peacock Premium) as Jesse Marsch needs a huge win in his first home game in charge of Leeds.

STREAM LIVE LEEDS v ASTON VILLA

Marsch lost his first game as a Premier League manager but the American was ‘very proud’ of what he saw from his side, as they dominated Leicester City but couldn’t put their chances away. Marsch has been tweaking Leeds’ style after he took over from Marcelo Bielsa and they were more solid and pragmatic against Leicester but still had plenty of creativity and spark in attack. Leeds had Patrick Bamford on the bench last week and his return would be huge as they’ve really missed a focal point and their leading goalscorer from last season. Given they’ve had six defeats in their last season, Leeds have been dragged closer to the relegation zone and this a game they really have to win as they look to build confidence ahead of a winnable run of games coming up.

As for Villa, they are heading in the opposite direction as Steven Gerrard’s side spanked Southampton 4-0 last time out and that sealed back-to-back wins. Philippe Coutinho was brilliant in his free role in a midfield diamond and that got the best out of Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins ahead of him. Villa are a very good away team and they will fancy their chances of picking holes in Leeds’ usually leaky defense. After their recent wins they are back in the conversation for a top 10 finish and Gerrard is building momentum ahead of his first full season in charge in 2022-23. Aston Villa drew 3-3 with Leeds when they played them a few weeks ago and this game promises to be just as entertaining.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leeds vs Aston Villa.

Key storylines, players to watch closely

Everyone’s going to keep looking at Cristiano Ronaldo — it’s difficult not to turn your head with all the “Look at me” nonsense — but Bruno Fernandes is the real string-puller here. He’s playing well with Ruben Neves, while Ruben Dias and the back line will look to tighten things up after letting Ghana stay in the game.

Uruguay hero Luis Suarez has been here before, but his supporting cast is as good as ever. Rodrigo Betancur and Jose Maria Gimenez give La Celeste a chance at clean sheet every time they take the pitch.

Opening match winners Brazil and Switzerland meet Monday at Stadium 974 in Doha.

FIFA world No. 1 Brazil broke through pesky Serbia for a 2-0 win In Lusail to start the tournament as Richarlison scored two goals — one a ridiculous bit of technique — to get the Brazilians off on the right (and left) foot.

Switzerland meanwhile used a 1-0 defeat of Cameroon to claim three points and set up Monday’s win-and-in match.

Brazil will not have Neymar for this one and likely the rest of the group stage as the oft-fouled magician felt the sting of Serbian tackles in the opener. The Brazilians have had to play without their captain before and have a wealth of attacking options, but who will join Richarlison in providing the goals in a Ney-less attack.

The Swiss have all the tools to hang with Brazil, but how physical will they want to make it for the favorites? Granit Xhaka will be one to watch as the underdogs try to balance a desire to get forward with the danger of doing so against a potent Brazil.

The United States men’s national team seeks a return to the knockout rounds and that’ll only come with a win over Iran at 2pm ET Saturday inside Al Thumama Stadium in Al Khor.

STREAM LIVE IRAN vs USA

It doesn’t matter what Wales does vs England at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan because England already has four points and a draw would give Iran four as well.

The Yanks’ two draws mandate a win-or-go-home mentality on Saturday and there are multiple generations worth of redemption up for grabs after the USMNT was felled by Iran at the 1998 World Cup and failed to qualify for the 2018 tourney in Russia.

Key storylines, players to watch closely

For Iran, it’s about riding the momentum of a huge win after finding inspiration in a huge loss. There’s an ocean’s worth of difference in emotion between the 6-2 tournament-opening loss to England in Al Rayyan and the 2-0 triumph over Wales In the same city. Can Mehdi Taremi or Sardar Azmoun succeed where Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling could not and break down the USMNT defense for a goal?

Meanwhile, the Yanks may still be lamenting a 1-1 draw with Wales as much as they are celebrating a strong performance that kept them unbeaten against England at the World Cup after a scoreless draw with Gareth Southgate’s men In Al Khor. Gregg Berhalter has to find a way to unlock the USMNT’s final-third woes when they hit Al Khor on Tuesday.
