With injuries to Adam Forshaw, Jamie Shackleton, Liam Cooper and Pablo Hernandez persisting, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has opted to employ Stuart Dallas in central midfield.

This means that Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi are starting in the defence at right back and centre back respectively.

In midfield, Leeds have Mateusz Klich, Kalvin Phillips, Helder Costa and Jack Harrison alongside Dallas.

Leeds play Milwall away at The Den, a ground that Leeds haven’t been so fortunate at in recent memory.

Fans will remember the emphatic win at home towards the end of last season however, where Leeds came out 4-3 winners and looked destined for promotion. But the less said about that the better, in the end.

If Leeds come away with 3 points then they will go into the international break on 23 points, needing Swansea to drop points in order to go top of the league.

Milwall are expected to play a very physical game and attack Leeds’ box with long balls and use their height advantage to work attacks.
