Team news: Starting XI announced for final 2021/22 home game

Three changes made.

Leeds United are back at Elland Road today as we take on Brighton & Hove Albion in the final home game of the 2021/22 season.

There have been three changes made to the starting line-up that sees Joe Gelhardt, Mateusz Klich and Junior Firpo drafted in to replace the suspended Dan James, Pascal Struijk and Lewis Bate.

Frenchman Illan Meslier starts in net for the Whites, with captain Liam Cooper joined in defence by Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Junior Firpo.

The midfield areas will be covered by Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich, whilst Raphinha, Jack Harrison, Rodrigo and Joe Gelhardt feature in our attacking positions.

Our substitutes bench this afternoon consists of goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson, Pascal Struijk, Jamie Shackleton, Sam Greenwood, Lewis Bate, Charlie Cresswell, Leo Hjelde, Nohan Kenneh and Archie Gray.

Patrick Bamford, Adam Forshaw, Stuart Dallas, Tyler Roberts and Crysencio Summerville remain side-lined as they recover from various injuries. Luke Ayling and Dan James are both out of the side through suspension.

Today’s kick-off is scheduled for 2pm, and for those not in attendance at Elland Road you can follow all of the action live on the Leeds Unite blog here.
