With Arsenal the opponents, Brazilian summer signing Raphinha makes his first Leeds United start as Kalvin Phillips finally returns to the side.

Leeds United welcome Arsenal to Elland Road for the first time in the Premier League since a 4-1 defeat to the Gunners back in November 2003.

A return to winning ways is the aim for both sides after heavy defeats by three-goal margins before the international break, with Leeds suffering a 4-1 loss to Palace and Arsenal a 3-0 gone defeat to Aston Villa.

As the setup shows below, Raphinha makes his first Leeds United start, while Phillips returns to the lineup, and Gjanni Alioski keeps his place to make it just one change from the defeat to Palace.

Illan Meslier once again starts in goal, with a back four of Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Robin Koch, and Stuart Dallas.

Kalvin Phillips returns to his position at holding midfield after three games on the sidelines, with Mateusz Klich in front probably alongside Gjanni Alioski.

The ever-present Jack Harrison starts on the left while it’s a first start for summer signing Raphinha.

The red-hot Patrick Bamford is, of course, starting in attack.

The bench consists of a handful of talented players too with Rodrigo back in the squad, Tyler Roberts, Ian Poveda and Helder Costa too eager to make an impact.

The main bonus about this announcement is obviously the return of Kalvin Phillips after three tough games without him in that position.

In attack, we’ll have enough in the locker to test Mikel Arteta’s side today, plus adding Raphinha to the mix is only going to be positive to this side.

The versatility of that midfield and the wing backs could mean we see a shift to 3-3-1-3 that allows for more freedom to Harrison and Raphinha, but we’ll have to wait and see.
