The hosts may still be without Ben White due to the hamstring strain that kept him from winning the London derby against West Ham.

But Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey remain absent for the long term.

Meanwhile, Leeds have been rocked by the serious injury Stuart Dallas suffered against City following their long list of absentees.

Already missing Jesse Marsch are Adam Forshaw, Crysencio Summerville, Liam Cooper and Tyler Roberts.
