Leeds United are preparing for this Saturday's pre-season friendly with Atalanta, and trained at Elland Road to get ready for the game.

The Whites lost away to Peterborough United last weekend in a 2-1 reverse, but will be in front of their home crowd this weekend.

Serie A side Atalanta travel to West Yorkshire on Saturday to face Garry Monk's side, and it will give Leeds fans the chance to see some new signings in action ahead of the new Championship season.

Monk could feature the likes of Robert Green, Kyle Bartley, Matt Grimes, Kemar Roofe, Hadi Sacko and Marcus Antonsson in this weekend's game, before Leeds travel to face Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on the first day of the new campaign.

Saturday's game will be a huge test for Leeds given that Atalanta finished 13th in Serie A last season, and new manager Monk has been training with his players ahead of the game.

Monk took to Twitter earlier today to send a message to supporters, posting a photo from Elland Road whilst stating that it's key for everybody to familiarise themselves with Leeds' famous stadium.

New faces like Antonsson and Sacko, who have never played at Elland Road before, will have benefited from training at their new home, rather than just at Leeds' Thorp Arch training ground - making this a wise decision from Monk to train at Elland Road earlier today.

Where do you think Leeds will finish this season?
