They looked better yesterday but although we seemingly can't score against Norwich everyone else can, so who knows. Still nearly messed it up with a 50:50 penalty call on VAR which went their way and a very lucky save right at the death.

Bamford back which makes a difference for them, only played 45 mins yesterday seemingly so he could play more of this one.

Unless it was just a dead leg for Hwang you can't see him being fit. Hopefully Neto can make the bench. I've gone rogue on the right hand side as we need to get right at Firpo, he is absolutely shite. No need to flood midfield against these, they empty it on their own.

I've also gone with Boly over Saiss, just because. I know it won't happen. Please don't play Marçal again, I can't deal with every single attack on our left dying as soon as we pass it his way.

Think we can definitely go back to Neves and Moutinho in midfield for this one. Having a back three should also help against their system if they are playing two strikers too (seem to be playing Rodrigo behind a forward now).

Neto sounded like a minor issue so I'd go with him, Raul and Podence in the front three.

He's injured.

Interesting one mentality wise, because irrespective of their win they'll still be low on confidence if we score early, but our success last year came by letting them burn themselves out

Happy with DWs team, don't mind if Saiss stays in, depends on Bolys fitness. Also I would start Neto if available

Marsch plays a pretty relentless high press (not a huge change for Leeds tbh), or used to.

This is a dangerous one, IMO. Will need Neves and Moutinho to be very quick with the ball.

Could do with what Coady did to Richarlison yesterday and smash Bamford in the first five minutes.

I like Marsch's style and think he's obviously a well liked coach.

With the way we've been moving the ball against Watford and then second half against Everton we look like beating the press well at the moment. And we need to get at their back 4 as they're shockingly poor.

Can't be playing Donk or Marçal, if Neto is fit I'd go with Dan's team but Neto in for Chiquinho.

Cooper and Phillips back for them. We'll be getting a different Leeds side to if we'd played them a couple of weeks ago

Would be going back to 3-4-3 for this one. Even if that means Trincao playing.
