Marcelo Bielsa confirms key change for crunch Leeds clash v Brentford, attacker out injured
Marcelo Bielsa has delivered a team update ahead of the massive Championship game against Brentford on Tuesday night.
He confirmed that Kalvin Phillips would come straight back into the side after missing three games through suspension.
Attacker Tyler Roberts will miss out after taking a knock to his calf.
Leeds travel to Griffin Park on a rotten run of form that’s seen them score in just one half of football in the last 12.
That they’re still second after a run like that is incredible but Bielsa will know that his side needs to turn things round quickly.
Bielsa was talking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the game on Tuesday (live in the LUFC app, 12pm).

Team news – Phillips is back from suspension. Tyler Roberts suffered a knock to his calf at the weekend and won't be in the squad tomorrow. #lufc

Phillips has been a big miss and his return is a massive boost for Leeds.
Roberts is a miss but the good news is that Bielsa went on to say that it wasn’t serious and that he would be back for the weekend.
On the other side, Pontus Jansson is hoping that he will be fit to line-up against his former side on Tuesday.
He’s missed the last four league games for his new side but is in contention to play against Leeds.
