Jesse Marsch has named his starting line-up to face Real Sociedad in the friendly match being hosted at Elland Road tonight.

The first-team squad travelled back from Spain recently following their week-long training camp and a 2-1 win over Elche CF, and the head coach has made three changes from that game with Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen featuring following their return from the World Cup.

Joel Robles continues in net, whilst captain Liam Cooper is joined by Luke Ayling, Pascal Struijk and Kristensen in defence.

Adam Forshaw will link back up with Marc Roca, with Mateusz Klich also starting alongside Aaronson, Jack Harrison, and Rodrigo in the attacking positions.

On our bench this evening, goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson features along with Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood, Willy Gnonto, Sonny Perkins, Darko Gyabi, Leo Hjelde, Cody Drameh and Mateo Joseph.

Crysencio Summerville, Luis Sinisterra, Patrick Bamford, Illan Meslier, Junior Firpo and Stuart Dallas continue to come back from recent and long-term injuries and illnesses.

Tonight’s game will kick-off at 7.45pm, and for those not in attendance at Elland Road you can either pay to watch here on LUTV or follow the live Leeds United blog here.

Starting XI: Robles (GK), Ayling, Forshaw, Cooper, Aaronson, Roca, Harrison, Rodrigo, Struijk, Kristensen, Klich.

Substitutes: Klaesson (GK), Perkins, Gyabi, Gnonto, Gelhardt, Hjelde, Drameh, Greenwood, Joseph.
