What has Marcelo Bielsa said?

“For us, this game is very interesting whether the game has connections or not with Manchester United.

“I know the understanding of this game so we are going to play the game as seriously as we can.

“But this is nothing different because we are always going to play all the games seriously but I know the history of the game and the reality of both clubs.

"I know too the relationship between Manchester United and the people of the club that we play on Tuesday.”

What has Graham Alexander said?

"As in opponent we've played, without a shadow of a doubt. Leeds United will be the biggest opponent we've ever played and the biggest club we've ever played.

"It's a fantastic draw for us.

"The demand for tickets was really evident early on, as soon as the draw was made.

"We haven't got the biggest ground with a 5,000 capacity, but I think every seat and inch on the terrace will be taken which will always add to a good atmosphere.

"I think it's always a great atmosphere when the away team brings a good following. I think our crowd really respond to that, I'm sure Leeds will bring plenty."

Team news...

Marcelo Bielsa is expected to make a host of changes after admitting that his bench from Saturday's 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest will see action.

Illan Meslier, Gjanni Alioski, Helder Costa, Gaetano Berardi, Mateusz Bogusz, Jamie Shackleton and Jack Clarke are those expected to begin the clash.

While there could also be a debut for Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah following his deadline day switch to Elland Road.
