Following the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League at the weekend, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa now switches his attention to the Carabao Cup tie with Hull City tonight.
The Yorkshire club gave a good account of themselves on their first game back in England’s top flight, testing Jurgen Klopp’s title winners in a see-saw seven-goal thriller at Anfield.
With the season now underway, cup action is back with Leeds hosting League One side Hull City tonight at Elland Road.
Youngsters Cody Drameh and Joe Gelhardt will likely miss out due to their involvement for the under-23 side on Monday, but Liam Cooper is set to return after missing out on the opening day of the season due to a slight injury problem.
Goalkeeper Illan Meslier is expected to be handed a rest, with former Real Madrid ‘keeper Kiko Casilla waiting in the wings to replace him.
Other regular first players such as Kalvin Phillips and Pablo Hernandez are also expected to be rested ahead of the Premier League fixture with Fulham at the weekend.
