Raphinha and Harrison start for Leeds

Jesse Marsch makes three changes to the side pulled apart by Chelsea at Elland Road on Wednesday.

One of those is enforced following Dan James’ horrific challenge on Mateo Kovacic, and the Welsh international – like Luke Ayling – will now miss the remainder of the season through suspension.

Joe Gelhardt comes into replace James, and he’s joined in the starting line-up by Junior Firpo and Mateusz Klich.

Young midfielder Lewis Bate and Pascal Struijk drop down to the substitutes’ bench.

Marsch went with a 4-5-1 formation against the Blues in midweek, and the suggestion is he’ll do so again with the incoming Gelhardt operating as the lone forward.

1 Meslier; 10 Raphinha, 5 Koch, 14 Llorente, 6 Cooper, 3 Firpo; 19 Rodrigo, 43 Klich, 23 Phillips, 22 Harrison; 30 Gelhardt
