Leeds have made nine changes to their side as they take on Burton Albion at Elland Road in a Saturday afternoon Championship fixture.
Garry Monk’s side claimed a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory against Norwich on Tuesday night, when they progressed through to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.
Rob Green, Luke Ayling, Pontus Jansson, Charlie Taylor, Kalvin Phillips, Hadi Sacko, Eunan O’Kane, Pablo Hernandez and Chris Wood return to the starting line-up.
That means Marco Silvestri, Lewie Coyle, Liam Cooper, Gaetano Berardi, Matt Grimes, Ronaldo Vieira, Doukara, Alex Mowatt and Marcus Antonsson drop out.
Here is the club’s official Twitter account posting the team news for the Burton clash:

That result against Norwich means the Yorkshire club are now unbeaten in six encounters on home soil, with their last defeat coming against neighbours Huddersfield Town on September 10.
Additionally, the Whites have picked up a respectable seven points from their last seven games, including a 1-0 win at Wolves during their last league fixture.
They take on Nigel Clough’s Burton side, who have not won on the road this season, but have still managed to pick up 17 points from 14 games, three points behind Leeds who are 11th.
In other Leeds team news, manager Garry Monk has heaped praise on this senior player and claimed he has what it takes.
