Leeds have only recorded two wins in their last 16 games, meaning tonight’s fixture against an Aston Villa side who were just eliminated from the FA Cup by League Two Stevenage is an opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone.

Jesse Marsch welcomes Liam Cooper and Illan Meslier back to the group this evening after the pair sat out Leeds’ Third Round tie last Sunday. Patrick Bamford is also expected to be named in Marsch’s travelling squad for the first time since late October.

Villa are currently three places and five points above Leeds in the Premier League table and drew 0-0 at Elland Road earlier this season. Since then, the Villans have switched managers, parting company with Steven Gerrard and appointing Unai Emery.

Aston Villa 2-1 Leeds United: Live match updates from Villa Park

89' Meslier booked after messing up a clearance and clattering Coutinho's head with his boot.

88' Firpo on for Koch. Wober into centre-back.

87’ Game has become so sloppy and disorganised since Leeds pulled one back. So many stray passes from both sides. Villa trying their best to waste as much time, disrupting the game as much as possible,


81’ Buendia and Ramsey off for Sanson and Coutinho

79' Greenwood on for Roca. Aaronson off for Gelhardt.

75' Chasing back, Adams and Aaronson tag-team Bailey to deny the Villa man a run on goal. Greenwood stripped and ready to come on. Looks like Joffy too.
