Follow all action from Elland Road as Marcelo Bielsa’s side tries to get back on Winner Road

Leeds United are back in the Premier League this afternoon when Brighton & hosts Hove Albion on Elland Road

Marcelo Bielsa and his side aim to banish the shocking FA Cup defeat last weekend from their system as they were defeated in their last Premier League game at Tottenham Hotspur

The whites start the weekend on Dec. in the Premier League table, five places and nine points ahead of the seagulls who have not won nine games

Bielsa has said that Liam Cooper, Diego Llorente and Tyler Roberts are available again while Graham Potter’s squad have a number of injury complaints, including Tariq Lamptey, Aaron Connolly, Jakub Moder, Danny Welbeck, Adam Lallana and Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Jason Steele will miss out on former white loan star Ben White is available

The seagulls deserve it too. Leeds forces it, takes too many risks and just can’t stop anything in the last third. Changes are certainly underway

Don’t click Leeds at all at the moment It has been a little quieter for both goalkeepers in the last few minutes and Brighton looks so comfortable with and without the ball Struijk, Rodrigo and Klich are killed in the middle of the park Rodrigo also looks exhausted Turns himself off without Ball off and always loses his man. Definitely a day for half-time changes

It fits the narrative Raphinha thinks he can beat White halfway, but he hasn’t seen the highs we’ve seen, White robs him, Raphinha catches up with him, White hits him again and then drives on to the Past backline from Leeds to fend off nosebleeds

Too easy for them to find their way around the Leeds defense with their fast and agile strikers. Trossard runs at Ayling again and shoots Ayling gets a touch but sends it from his own bar and gratefully to safety

Leeds Sleeps On Another Throw At Brighton Trossard gets a yard on the right to cross the gate Ayling does well to maneuver his body and head freely at an awkward angle, but Brighton gets in the final third lots of space

Brighton makes mid-field sales, which releases White into space on the dribble, Feeding Mac Allister, who pits, excellent one-two with Trossard and the former pushes him over Casilla to Maupay to eavesdrop on So static from Leeds Nobody stayed with their runners Dallas should have done better with Mac Allister and Cooper has to cut the pass to Trossard

Trossard crosses from the right and Casilla comfortably catches it, but that doesn’t stop Maupay from challenging late in the air

Cooper gets nervous about Mac Allister and calls Dallas to tag him on a last minute throw-in, giving the playmaker space to leave Maupay behind Ayling gives him a weak touch on the shoulder and he goes down Not given and the right decision

Ayling pings Raphinha down the left flank Gorgeous ball brings it down, comes in and feeds Alioski with the overlap nasty, low flank over the face of the goal and Rodrigo has a tip but seems to lose the ball in the body goes the all the way through

Ball doesn’t hold and move very fast out there Early tension, but Leeds has taken possession now

Not to be ignored that it’s a blow, we don’t have an Illan Meslier today on social media there were rumors of a COVID-19 diagnosis, but Bielsa said Phillips was the only player to appear at Thursday’s press conference We know he was reluctant to receive coronavirus and player responses so after the game we need to see what he says in any case, this is a big test for Kiko Casilla who comes into Crawley Town after a difficult afternoon The only other change is Cooper for Phillips who we expected to be back on the bench with Llorente the lineup could still be a three or a four on the back based on the team hand we’re going to have to see

They hit halftime in today’s early Premier League game and Wolves won 2-1 at home against West Brom

Should Wolves capture and defeat the Baggies, they will be two points ahead of Leeds in the Premier League table

Brighton is known for having a nice look on the eyes, but Graham Potter simply has no wins this season The last victory in the Premier League was recorded against Aston Villa in November

To get the inside look at the seagulls ahead of the clash this afternoon, we spoke to Richard Mills on our sister site Sussex Live to hear his thoughts here

If they so wish, Brighton could put together a team of giants this afternoon, which would make Leeds fans break in a cold sweat

But, as Joe Donnohue points out here, Brighton’s ability to shift is something of a double-edged sword

Usually, the first goal in a Leeds United game is crucial. The Bielsa team have an excellent record of doing the job when they first hit the net However, one of Brighton’s main weaknesses this season is that they are unable to take the lead
