Marcelo Bielsa has named an unchanged Leeds United starting XI for the big game away at Swansea today. 

It means that there’s no starting berth for Pablo Hernandez on his return to his former club.

He’s been used as an impact player off the bench as Bielsa manages his game time – and what an impact he’s had.

He put in a 45-minute masterclass against Stoke and helped turn the score from 1-0 at half-time to 5-0 at full-time.

Plenty of fans wanted to see him start but we’re sure he’ll come off the bench again this afternoon.

The other standout news is the return of Mateusz Bogus – he makes the bench for the first time since November.

The team news was announced on the official Leeds United Twitter account ahead of the 1.30pm kick-off.

Today’s game was initially down as a Sky match but they deselected it after other results meant that Leeds couldn’t get promoted today.

The only way to watch the game is through LUTV where you can buy a matchday pass for £10 in the UK or £5 if you’re overseas.

We’ll be looking for Patrick Bamford to get on the scoresheet again as he continues to confound the critics.

He’s been in great form since the season restarted and is looking to score for the third successive game today.

Four more goals would also get him to 20 and no matter how many he’s missed, the Leeds fans should acknowledge that as a good return.

We’re also looking for more from Tyler Roberts who has been a bit disappointing in the role normally taken by Hernandez.
