Predicted Leeds United line-up vs Chelsea as Farke awards full debut and youngster start as Whites depleted

Leeds United manager Daniel Farke may not have four of his key attacking players to choose from in the FA Cup this week.

Georginio Rutter, Patrick Bamford, Crysencio Summerville and Dan James are all listed as doubtful for the trip to Chelsea on Wednesday night with Farke keen to protect his most important attackers ahead of Saturday lunchtime's visit to Huddersfield Town in the Championship.

Leeds' primary goal this season is to achieve promotion back to the Premier League, despite the team's cup run which could see them book their place in the quarter final with a surprise victory over defeated Carabao Cup finalists Chelsea this week.

Here is the XI we expect Farke to name at Stamford Bridge.
