Leeds United have revealed the team and substitutes they will send into battle against Sheffield United in a home Championship clash at the Elland Road later this afternoon.

Leeds beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in the earlier fixture between the two sides, 1-0, through a Pablo Hernandez goal.

"All wins are important and no win is more important than another at this moment in the competition", said Bielsa.

"What we have done so far is important too, because it allows us to be in this position now".

Leeds were wobbling, but a half-time team talk and some vocal backing from their supporters steadied them. The young attacker has been out recently with injury, but he played for the under-23s in midweek, and has come through that with no new issues and is set to be involved against Sheffield United.

"When we won against them it was a hard win and probably we didn't deserve to win and for us it is a big challenge to play against them and try and win the game".

The Whites have the chance to return to the top of the table for a few hours, with them playing in the lunchtime kick off, with a win over the Blades firing them back to the summit, so they will not lack for motivation in front of a passionate Elland Road crowd.
