Leeds United have revealed their starting side and substitutes to welcome Chelsea to Elland Road in the Premier League this evening.


Jesse Marsch will be aiming for his men to spring a surprise and beat Chelsea to give their hopes of survival in the Premier League a shot in the arm.



They face a Chelsea side in poor form, with just one win in their last five outings and having lost away at struggling Everton earlier this month.


Leeds lost 3-2 away at Chelsea earlier in the season and only conceded through an injury time penalty to miss out on sharing the spoils.



The Whites have Illan Meslier in goal today, while in defence they select a host of centre-backs in the shape of Liam Cooper, Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Pascal Struijk.


Midfield sees Kalvin Phillips started along with Lewis Bate, while Raphinha, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo support Daniel James.


If Marsch needs to make changes he can look to his bench, where his options include Junior Firpo and Joe Gelhardt.
