Welcome to tonight’s live blog…

We’ll bring you all the latest from Elland Road throughout the evening as Leeds United host West Ham in Premier League action.

Stay tuned for all the latest right here.

Early West Ham team news

David Moyes has one major doubt ahead of kick-off in the form of striker Michail Antonio.

The Hammers striker has been missing in recent weeks due to a hamstring complaint that saw him miss last weekend's defeat to Manchester United.

Fellow attacker Andriy Yarmolenko should return to Moyes' squad for the visit to West Yorkshire, having received the all clear following a positive coronavirus test whilst on international duty.

Defender Ryan Fredericks is the only other Hammers injury concern - the wing-back is currently recovering from a groin strain.

Early Leeds United team news

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has been hit by a double defensive blow with central defenders Robin Koch and Diego Llorente ruled out.

Koch has undergone knee surgery this week and is set to be missing for up to three months with Llorente picking up a muscular problem, leaving him absent for several weeks.

Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shackleton have been given a clean bill of health for the clash in LS11 while long-term absentee Adam Forshaw remains sidelined.

Marcelo Bielsa’s expected line-up

LUFC XI: Meslier, Dallas, Ayling, Cooper, Alioski, Phillips, Klich, Moreno, Raphinha, Harrison, Bamford
