United will also be shown a further two times in their next five games again after being chosen for full coverage with trips to West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United selected. The Whites will also be available for for viewing on the red button once in that same time period with Reading's visit to Elland Road falling on a Tuesday night.

The next batch of EFL TV fixtures will be announced by November 9, which is this Friday, and covers the Championship schedule from December 15 to January 12.

Marcelo Bielsa's side will play six league fixtures in that time frame starting with Bolton Wanderers on December 15 before a trip to Aston Villa on December 22. The fixture with Dean Smith's side at Villa Park is set to take place the same day as Leeds boxer Josh Warrington's title fight with Carl Frampton in Manchester.

For now, the fixture will take place at 3pm but United fans will be hoping should any change occur for it to be kind as to not conflict with Warrington's fight should they want to attend or watch both.

Leeds then host Blackburn Rovers on Boxing Day (December 26) before welcoming Hull City to Elland Road just three days later on December 29. Bielsa's men then head on the road to Nottingham Forest on New Year's Day (January 1) before a home game against Derby County on January 12.

The third round of the FA Cup is also set to take place over the weekend of January 5/6.
