Leeds United warm-up ahead of last weekend's clash with Everton at Goodison Park.

Marcelo Bielsa has one major selection dilemma ahead of Saturday's showdown with Frank Lampard's Blues in the capital. Does he stick or twist? At Everton there was no place for record signing Rodrigo in the starting eleven, and it could well be the same scenario again - here's how we think United will line-up in London...

Illan 'The Wall' Meslier, as we have dubbed him at the YEP, he's solidified his spot at Bielsa's number one this season.
Has really made that RWB spot his own, and believes there is still more to come from this United team. A leader on and off the pitch.

Has had a mixed start to life in the Premier League but given his new surrounds he's been more than solid. Improving with every passing minute.
Bielsa's captain - always starts when fit.
The major dilemma that faces Bielsa. Does he stick with Gjanni at left-back and leave Stuart Dallas in midfield? We think, yes. Which leaves Rodrigo on the bench once again.
Kalvin is the answer to life, the universe and everything in Bielsa's set-up. Completely took over the game at Everton last week.
It says midfield on the teamsheet but the reality is very different. Dallas is everywhere, swapping in and out of positions whilst helping build attacks and track back. The ultimate utility man.
The most selected player under Marcelo Bielsa - next question...
A winner to remember last week, as he fully announced himself after his summer arrival. Like others, seems to improve with every passing minute.
Another season of growth and he has made the leap to the Premier League just fine. 100 appearances notched up last weekend and he should add to that in the capital.
The form man in the early part of the season. Has led Bielsa's attack in stunning fashion, a goal against his former employers would be the icing on the cake this weekend.
