Jesse Marsch has made four changes to the team that will face Monaco tonight in our final friendly ahead of the Premier League restart.

Kristoffer Klaesson will start in between the posts for the Whites this evening, and he is joined in defence by captain Luke Ayling, Robin Koch, Rasmus Kristensen and Pascal Struijk.

Linking up in the midfield we have Marc Roca, Adam Forshaw and Sam Greenwood, whilst Brenden Aaronson and Willy Gnonto support Joe Gelhardt up front.

Junior Firpo and Diego Llorente are also back in the sqaud tonight, returning from recent injuries, and they feature on the substitutes bench along with goalkeepers Joel Robles and Dani van den Heuvel, Darko Gyabi, Leo Hjelde, Cody Drameh and Mateo Joseph.

Leeds United have won both of their previous friendly fixtures against Elche CF and Real Sociedad, as they continue with their preparations for the Manchester City match back at Elland Road on Wednesday 28th December.

Our match this evening is due to kick off at 7pm, and for those not in attendance at Elland Road you can follow the live Leeds United blog online here.
