Missing Players and team news:

Leeds will again be without the services of Adam Forshaw on Saturday, while Bielsa revealed during Thursday’s press conference that Pablo Hernandez and Pascal Struijk are also absent. Jamie Shackleton is available, though, while Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo Moreno are both fit, having come through the clash with West Ham following recent injuries. Robin Koch has also recovered from a knee problem, but the defender will not feature in this match, with a return for the Under-23s on Monday evening more likely. Patrick Bamford and Raphinha will both feature in the final third of the field, and there are also likely to be starts for Jack Harrison and Rodrigo, with Tyler Roberts and Helder Costa potentially dropping out. As for Chelsea, Tammy Abraham remains a slight doubt with an ankle problem, but the visitors are otherwise in excellent shape, meaning that Tuchel has a number of decisions to make. There are expected to be changes from the side that started against Everton, with Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell and Antonio Rudiger likely to return. Thiago Silva is also in contention to start, having recently overcome a thigh issue, but Andreas Christensen’s form could see the Denmark international keep his spot. Kai Havertz, meanwhile, impressed against the Toffees in a centre-forward position, and the Germany international could retain his spot in the starting XI on Saturday afternoon.
