11 changes as Rodrigo makes debut - Confirmed Leeds starting XI v Hull City

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has made a number of changes for the Carabao Cup clash with Hull City on Wednesday.

Club record signing Rodrigo will make his full debut, and be handed the chance to redeem his clumsy tackle that cost Leeds a point against Liverpool.

As confirmed via the Whites Twitter account prior to kick-off, a number of academy stars have been given the nod, including a debut for Charlie Cresswell.

Leeds will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing 4-3 defeat in their Premier League opener with Liverpool on Saturday.

Bielsa went for his usual system at Anfield, with his 4-1-4-1 formation causing the Premier League champions real problems in Merseyside.

A third-round tie against West Ham United is on the line in this Yorkshire derby, with the winners travelling to the London Stadium for the first time.

Leeds crashed out of the competition at this stage last season, losing on penalties after drawing 2-2 in normal time against Stoke City.

Bielsa was left raging after that clash at Elland Road, despite making numerous changes and handing chances to the likes of Alfie McCalmont, Jack Clarke and Leif Davis against an experienced side.

Now the Whites are in the Premier League, they will view the cup competitions as big chances to go as far as possible, starting tonight against League One opposition.
