Leeds team news: Jansson set to return to Bielsa’s starting XI

Leeds team news: Jansson set to return to Bielsa’s starting XI - Championship

Leeds United will meet Norwich City as the two sides battle it out at the top of the Championship table.

The Whites currently sit three points clear at the summit and Marcelo Bielsa will want to see his side extend that advantage.

Leeds enter the game in a mixed run of form, however, some encouraging news has emerged for the Elland Road outfit ahead of the game.


According to the club’s official website, The Whites do not have any new injury concerns and will be able to welcome two individuals into the team.

Tyler Roberts did enough in their match against Rotherham United last weekend and will be put into the starting XI.

Bielsa has also confirmed that Pontus Jansson will come back into the side after he served his suspension and will replace Kalvin Phillips.

Barry Douglas is also set to return to the matchday squad following injury and will start on the substitutes bench.

The Verdict:

This is arguably Leeds’ biggest Championship match of the season and one that could go a long way in deciding the title.

Bielsa will be delighted to have Jansson back available as the defender has been one of The Whites’ best players.

After a disappointing January, the Elland Road outfit will want to start February in the best possible way.
