Leeds United go into their first game of the season against Wolves on Saturday on the back of an eventful summer.

There has been a major overhaul, not just in terms of the squad, but behind the scenes as well, with many coaches who worked under Marcelo Bielsa now having left.

This has started looking more and more like a Jesse Marsch team and we will see how that takes shape in the opening games of the campaign.

With Raphinha no longer at the club, replacing him is going to be extremely difficult and that’s precisely why the Whites went for Luis Sinisterra.

However, after Marsch’s press conference, the Colombian has been ruled out as he’s one of seven senior players who will not be there.

We can expect Jack Harrison to play on the right with Rodrigo playing as a number 10 and Brenden Aaronson on the left as he has played on occasion in pre-season.

Mateusz Klich may not even feature as his future seems to be away from Elland Road.

That means in midfield, Tyler Adams and Marc Roca may be handed their debuts and we’re expecting the two to be mainstays unless either suffers an injury.

Up front, there’s a very good chance for Patrick Bamford to start, but this will be his first professional start for months and while he’s had an impressive pre-season, we get the feeling that Marsch may pick the safer option and go for Joe Gelhardt.

In defence, Pascal Struijk will come in as there’s no other player to play at left-back while there will be another debut as Rasmus Kristensen will start at right-back with there being no Luke Ayling.

In other Leeds United news, a 29-year-old has snubbed interest from Europe to move to Elland Road with the move subject to a work permit.
