Team news: Daniel Farke's XI to face Stoke City

Manager names team to take on the Potters.


Daniel Farke has named his starting XI to face Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium this evening, in Leeds United’s latest Sky Bet Championship clash.

Following Saturday’s win over Norwich City, the manager has made three changes to the team that started the match at Carrow Road.

Wilfried Gnonto and Jaidon Anthony have come back into the starting line-up, whilst Ilia Gruev has been given a first start for the Whites since his arrival at the end of August.

Illan Meslier starts in goal for Leeds, accompanied by a defensive line of Archie Gray, Joe Rodon, captain Pascal Struijk and Sam Byram.

Gruev’s first start for the Whites will be in midfield alongside Ethan Ampadu, who has began every match for the club so far in the 2023/24 campaign.

The forward positions will see Gnonto and Anthony on the wing, with the partnership of Georginio Rutter and Joel Piroe continuing upfront.
