Team news: Starting XI named for Wolves clash

Team news announced at Molineux.


Leeds United are taking on Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home this evening. The team news has now been announced for the 8pm kick-off at Molineux.

Jesse Marsch has chosen to begin the match with Illan Meslier in goal for the Whites and he will be accompanied at the back with a defensive line of Luke Ayling, Diego Llorente, Pascal Struijk and Stuart Dallas.

In front of the defence and occupying the midfield positions will be Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich in the central areas, whilst Rodrigo, Dan James and Jack Harrison will interchange from the wings to centre-forward areas.

Up front and making his second consecutive start following the win over Norwich last time out, is Patrick Bamford, with the number 9 leading the line for Marsch’s side.

On the bench, we see the long-awaited return of Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips! The duo have been out injured for a number of months but are now back in action and can return to the match squad at Molineux.

Also amongst the substitutes is goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson, Robin Koch, Charlie Cresswell, Crysencio Summerville, Sam Greenwood, Nohan Kenneh and last weekend’s match winner, Joe Gelhardt.
