Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has named an unchanged line-up for Saturday evening's Championship clash with West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

United, who came back to defeat Wigan Athletic 2-1 last weekend at the DW stadium, will remain unchanged from the Latcis fixture in the West Midlands.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell takes up his usual spot in goal with Stuart Dallas and Barry Douglas as Bielsa's two wing-backs. Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper will start in the centre of defence with Kalvin Phillips slotting into his usual quarterback role just ahead in midfield.

Pablo Hernandez and Gjanni Alioski take up their places as the two wingers with Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich playing behind front man Kemar Roofe who returns to West Brom for the first time since leaving in 2015 without making a senior appearance.

Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman heads the United bench alongside Jamie Shackleton, Jack Harrison, Lewis Baker, Samuel Saiz and Tyler Roberts. There is also a spot for 18-year-old defender Leif Davis on the bench as he's included in a senior match day squad for the first time since his move from Morecombe.

West Bromwich Albion starting XI: Johnstone, Gibbs, Robson-Kanu, Morrison, Livermore, Phillips, Barnes, Rodriguez, Adarabioyo, Dawson, Hegazi. Subs: Myhill, Sako, Mears, Gayle, Barry, Hoolahan, Harper.
