Marcelo Bielsa has made three changes for tonight’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Elland Road.

Following Saturday’s point and clean sheet away from home at Brighton & Hove Albion, the Leeds United head coach has opted to make three changes to the previous line-up.

Pascal Struijk, Mateusz Klich and Tyler Roberts will begin the match, taking the places of Junior Firpo, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo.

Illan Meslier will once again start between the posts for Leeds, accompanied in his backline by captain Liam Cooper, Diego Llorente, and Pascal Struijk.

Further support in this area will be offered by Kalvin Phillips, Adam Forshaw and Stuart Dallas when they are required to do so, with the trio also bolstering attacking options when needed.

At the attacking end of the pitch, Mateusz Klich, Raphinha, Tyler Roberts, Dan James will be looking to trouble the visitors defensive line throughout the game.

The bench tonight will be Kristoffer Klaesson, Junior Firpo, Rodrigo, Jack Harrison, Joe Gelhardt, Charlie Cresswell, Crysencio Summerville, Jamie Shackleton and Jack Jenkins.

The fixture this evening is dedicated to Stonewall’s annual Rainbow Laces campaign with the squad wearing warm-up T-shirts.
