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.
