Leeds United are back on home turf this afternoon as they face Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road.

Head coach Javi Gracia has made two changes to our starting line-up, as we see the return of Patrick Bamford along with Marc Roca, replacing Georginio Rutter and Weston McKennie in the starting XI.

Rodrigo and Luis Sinisterra also return following longer spells out of the side through injury, and they are included on the substitutes bench.

Illan Meslier continues in goal for Leeds, with his defence featuring captain Luke Ayling, Robin Koch, Max Wober and Junior Firpo.

Tyler Adams links up with Roca in the midfield, whilst Crysencio Summerville, Jack Harrison, and Brenden Aaronson join Bamford in attack for the Whites.

Our strong substitutes bench this afternoon also includes Pascal Struijk, Willy Gnonto, Rasmus Kristensen, Sam Greenwood, and goalkeeper Joel Robles – alongside Rodrigo, Sinisterra, McKennie and Rutter.

Today’s match will kick-off at 3pm, and for those not in attendance at Elland Road, you can follow the live Leeds United blog online here.
