Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa could name an unchanged side when his charges take on Crystal Palace on Monday evening.

During the week, Leeds lost 2-1 at home to Everton in what was a disappointing result in the Premier League.

However, a flurry of injury concerns means that Bielsa may opt to name the same starting XI that came undone against the Toffees.

Diego Llorente, Gaetano Berardi, Rodrigo Moreno, Robin Koch, Adam Forshaw and Ian Poveda are all missing, though none of them were indeed involved in the midweek clash.

Illan Meslier will start in goal, behind a back four of Luke Ayling, Pascal Struijk, LIam Cooper, and Ezgjan Alioski, will continue in his deeper role at left-back.

Kalvin Phillips is a sure-fire starter with Mateusz Klich partnering him in central midfield.

Big summer signing Raphinha has four goal contributions in his past three games via two scored himself plus two assists, and will start on the right-hand side. Against Everton, he netted the consolation goal and was unlucky to be on the loside team.

Stuart Dallas and Jack Harrison will complete the attacking midfield trio behind the striker.

Patrick Bamford is the first name on the teamsheet under Bielsa these days, and will lead the line against Palace.

The only players available that could potentially have a shout of breaking into the XI that started midweek are Tyler Roberts and Helder Costa.
