Three changes since Bielsa
A big night for Tyler Roberts, who leads the line for Leeds United tonight.
Marcelo Bielsa has made three changes to his squad – Klich, Roberts and Struijk replace Rodrigo, Harrison and Firpo.
Three points are required under Elland Road traffic lights.
Cooper’s Program Notes
Writing in the day’s schedule, Cooper said: âLast weekend at Brighton we knew we didn’t reach the levels we are capable of in the first half and we rectified that in the second half.
âWe went there wanting to get all three points and at the end of the day if we couldn’t do that the best thing to do is a draw.
âI hope that at the end of the season we will look back and think about it as a decent point on the road.
“We know how important our home games are going to be this season, we want to win as many as possible and I hope we can do that in the spotlight tonight.”
Klich is the first to enter the pitch tonight at Elland Road.
He is followed by Illan Meslier, Tyler Roberts, Adam Forshaw and Kalvin Phillios. Dan James and a few others appear a little later.
