As expected Thomas Christiansen has made a host of changes for the trip to the King Power tonight. The only player to keep his place in the team from Saturday is Kalvin Phillips.

Starting XI

GK – Felix Wiedwald – The German keeper is back in the side after losing his place to Andy Lonergan in the last couple of weeks. A big game for him tonight, he needs to show his ability.

RB – Vurnon Anita – Back in at right-back and will most probably start at Left-back on Friday night unless Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has a stormer tonight.

CB – Conor Shaughnessy – Back in the side and hopefully have a good game because he hasn’t put a foot wrong this season.

CB – Pontus Jansson – Needs to be a leader tonight and will be it he’s on his game. Dropped ok Saturday, has a point to prove.

LB – Cameron Borthwick-Jackson – In my eyes the best natural left back at the club, if he plays well tonight he could force his way back into the side.

CM – Matty Klich – A talented player who has barely had a chance to impress in the league. Tidy on the ball, good passer and can get forward.

CM – Kalvin Phillips – One of the players who has really struggled in the last month but looked better on Saturday. Energy will be important tonight.

LW – Pawel Cibicki – hasn’t had a sniff since coming to England and needs to start showing why we have paid over £1.5 million.

CAM – Pablo Hernandez (c) – Will have more room and more time tonight, needs to make the most of it, captains the side.

RW – Kemar Roofe – We still haven’t seen the best of Roofe from the wing but he will be important at holding the ball tonight.

ST – Jay-Roy Grot – Has had chances off bench but what I would like to see is a style of play from the big man tonight, hasn’t shown much so far.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
