Only Kalvin Phillips keeps his place in the side that started Saturday’s Championship clash at Bristol City as Mateusz Klich is handed a rare start alongside Phillips in centre midfield.

Pawel Cibicki, Kemar Roofe and captain for the night Pablo Hernandez also all come into the fray in the attacking midfield positions while Jay-Roy Grot replaces Pierre-Michel Lasogga in the lone striker role.

Christiansen also changes his entire back five with Pontus Jansson returning to the side to partner Conor Shaughnessy at centre-back.
