The match will be a special one for supporters, not least because a limited number will be allowed to return to Elland Road for the first time this season, but also because it will be their last opportunity to say goodbye to Gaetano Berardi and Pablo Hernandez, with both players set to leave the club over the summer.

As for West Brom they will be bidding farewell to Sam Allardyce, who will depart the Hawthorns having failed to prevent the Baggies from making an immediate return to the Championship.

Taking all of that into account, Bielsa has opted to include Berardi and Hernandez from the outset, with Diego Llorente and Patrick Bamford making way. The 27-year-old striker is on the bench.
