"I know Raphinha from Sporting and I know Daniel [James] from Swansea,” Lage said. “I know what they can do - they are good players.”

“I think the dangers from Leeds come from several sides, not just the wingers.

“If you watch the positions from the right or left-back, sometimes they go inside and find positions inside.

“The strikers will try to attack the back of our defenders. They know what to do and can do a lot of things with the ball.”
