One change today sees Kalvin Phillips replaced by Ireland international Eunan O’Kane in the midfield. Star man Samu Saiz hasn’t made the game despite Thomas Christiansen saying he would be fit, which means Pablo Hernandez continues in the number 10 role after his wonderful winner against Hull City and no other changes despite the tough schedule.

Leeds team to play Burton Albion

GK – Felix Wiedwald – Keeps his place after two clean sheets.

RB – Luke Ayling – Keeps his 100% record in the league so far.

CB – Pontus Jansson – In fine form, the best for a while. Struggled against Sordell in this fixture last season, will be keen to make sure he knows it was a one-off.

CB – Liam Cooper (c) – In very good form again, was certain to start.

LB – Gaetano Berardi – Had his best game for a while against Hull City and will be keen to back it up.

CM – Ronaldo Vieira – Has been carrying the midfield at times, will love the tight pitch and needs to gain control early.

CM – Eunan O’Kane – Back in the side after not starting a game since Barnsley, plays well and he could keep his place over Kalvin Phillips.

LW – Gjanni Alioski – Hasn’t been as successful going forward in the last couple, but could have a big influence today.

CAM – Pablo Hernandez – Stays in his preferred position after winner on Saturday.

RW – Pawel Cibicki – Third start on the bounce, firmly in the plans.

ST – Kemar Roofe – Hat-trick in last away game, but none in last two.

About Author

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.
