Leeds United have named an unchanged side for their Premier League clash against Everton on Saturday evening.
Marcelo Bielsa has decided to stick with Ezgjan Alioski for the clash at Goodison Park after the Macedonian impressed last week.
Confirmed on their official Twitter account prior to kick-off, Rodrigo has been named among the substitutes despite calls to bring him back in.

The big call before the game was whether to bring back Rodrigo or not.
In the 0-0 draw with Arsenal, the Spaniard’s cameo in the second-half was one of the bright spells of the disappointing end at Elland Road.
Raphinha also impressed on his first Premier League start for the club, causing the Gunners constant problems and hitting the woodwork late on.
The Whites knew they would be without Diego Llorente, Jamie Shackleton and Pablo Hernandez as they continue to juggle with numerous injury problems.
Llorente should be back for the Chelsea clash, but it appears that we have said that nearly every single week in the past month.
Leeds would love a win in Merseyside, and it would put an end to their run of three games without three points in the Premier League.
Panic hasn’t set in yet, but with a tough trip to Stamford Bridge around the corner, a win here would settle the nerves.
Three points would catapult the Whites up the table and could see them sitting in the top-half before play starts on Super Sunday.
