Marcelo Bielsa has named the Leeds United side that will take on Leicester City as the Whites look to record back to back Premier League wins.
Diego Llorente misses out after picking up another injury in the early stages of our last game against Newcastle and Pascal Struijk replaces him today.
The team news was announced on the club’s official Twitter account as fans waited to see if El Loco would make many changes to his side.

Illan Meslier retains his place in goal which is no surprise with the defence of Ezgjan Alioski, Liam Cooper, Struijk and Luke Ayling sitting in front of him.
Kalvin Phillips starts again in midfield with Rodrigo and Stuart Dallas ahead of him.
Jack Harrison will be looking to get on the scoresheet again as he starts with Patrick Bamford and Raphinha also in the attack.
We are certainly up against it today even though the talismanic Jamie Vardy will be missing for the hosts.
We were well beaten in the reverse fixture at Elland Road and Bielsa will be looking to avoid another hammering today.
This may be the best time to play the Foxes considering their injury woes and there is no doubting that we will be trying to test their defence.
A healthy dose of revenge could be in order following the 4-1 loss earlier in the season and we would like nothing more than to get a positive result at the King Power Stadium.
Come on Leeds!
