Leeds United are back in action this evening as they welcome West Brom to Elland Road in their third Championship outing of the season.

It has not been an ideal start for the Whites, who lost to Birmingham City with a late penalty last weekend after coming from 2-0 down to draw with Cardiff City on the opening day of the season.

Daniel Farke is facing plenty of off-field dilemmas with a number of players still linked with moves away from Elland Road following the club’s relegation. Tonight’s game will see the return of Carlos Corberan to Elland Road. The Spaniard worked in Marcelo Bielsa’s coaching staff and was the clubs’ Under-23s head coach before he left to take on the head coach role at Huddersfield Town.

A win this evening would provide a much-needed morale boost for fans who have waited months to see their side win a league game. For those not attending the game, here’s how to keep up with the action from home.
