Leeds United celebrate goal at Wigan Athletic earlier last month
Now Marcelo Bielsa knows none of his players can be prized away from European clubs - is this his best starting 11? Scroll and click through the pages to see who we have gone with and why:
After a difficult end to last season, the former Real Madrid shot-stopper seems a lot more comfortable in between the sticks this time around. Stuart Dallas has performed superbly in an unfamiliar right-back role but when Ayling is fit, he will likely regain his place. It would indeed be harsh to drop Dallas altogether, so perhaps a switch over to left-back will be the perfect solution to keep him in the team. The captain of Leeds United and one of the clubs most experienced players. A guaranteed starter with not much competition in that area. What a revelation this man has been. Already a popular figure among the Leeds support. Crowned Augusts Championship PFA Player of the Month to cap off a fine opening month at Elland Road. Phillips is one of the best in the Championship at his role - providing vital support to the Whites back four. Wears his heart on his sleeve and is Leeds through and through. Leeds little Spanish magician can win a game on his own at a flick of a switch. Everyone needs a Pablo on the wing Costa was Bielsas marquee signing this summer. Jack Harrison looks steady but with Costa beginning to settle, his end product makes him a better option, at present. Forshaw has been handed a license to roam about more and looks a better player for it. His first Leeds goal could be just around the corner. Klich became one of the Whites leading players last term and has proved he can perform the advanced midfield role very well. Very tough position to decide given Eddie Nketiahs impact. The two could be played together, but that would mean sacrificing Forshaw or Klich. Bamfords goals so far probably justify his selection.
