Marcelo Bielsa's Whites are hovering around the 6-4 marker and a best-priced 31-21 but Palace are in the region of 2-1 and no bigger than 43-20 to take all three points from the 8.15pm kick-off at Elland Road.

The draw is around the 9-4 marker and a best priced 12-5 whilst United youngster Joe Gelhardt is rated the most likely Leeds player to score first, despite being an unused substitute during Saturday evening's goalless draw at Brighton.

Nineteen-year-old Gelhardt is a best-priced 7-1 to score first, marginally shorter than United's record signing Rodrigo and also Sam Greenwood who are both 15-2.
