Leeds United have named an unchanged starting XI for their Premier League clash with Chelsea on Saturday evening.

Marcelo Bielsa has named Diego Llorente in his squad for the first time this season, with the Spaniard finally back from injury and on the bench.

Confirmed on Twitter prior to kick-off, the likes of Ezgjan Alioski have kept their spots at Stamford Bridge after impressing in recent weeks.

Koch had been classed as a major doubt all week ever since Football Insider reported that he had missed a number of training sessions.

The 24-year-old has started every Premier League game this season, with Liam Cooper or Pascal Struijk beside him during his first campaign at Elland Road.

No one has made more interceptions per game than the German international according to WhoScored, and he would be a big miss for any side.

Thankfully, he was pictured arriving at the ground with the rest of the squad and was later named in the side in his usual spot.

Leeds could jump into the top half of the Premier League with three points, although it will be a massive ask against Chelsea.

There are a whole host of teams including Everton, Southampton and Wolves all on 17 points, and the Whites would join them with a win.

Chelsea themselves can go top of the Premier League with a win of their own, so there is plenty at stake in the capital this evening.
