Leeds United confirmed XI v Arsenal: Drameh starts
Marcelo Bielsa has named his playing eleven as Leeds United play host to Arsenal at Elland Road in the Premier League on Saturday.
He has made four changes from the side that got obliterated by Manchester City in midweek.
Robin Koch has come in for Diego Llorente, but there’s also a first Premier League start for Cody Drameh who plays instead of Jamie Shackleton.
Junior Firpo is also not in the team which means Stuart Dallas will play at left-back and Joe Gelhardt comes in place of the injured Dan James.
Mateusz Klich is the benefactor of Dallas moving to defence and he will play as part of a midfield two with Adam Forshaw.

There’s no better way than recovering from a 7-0 defeat than to get back to winning ways.
Arsenal aren’t the most convincing of sides away from home and they will be there for the taking today.
Bielsa has sprung a few changes with his eleven which is not a surprise given how badly his last team fared in the Premier League.
This will be a chance for many players in this Leeds side to right the wrongs from the Manchester City defeat.
A win here will see Leeds level on points with 14th-placed Everton and they could then go on a run with a relatively comfortable run of games after Liverpool on boxing day.
