Leeds United are expected to make major changes this week.

Leeds United face Bolton Wanderers in the League Cup on Tuesday night.

There will be big changes for the Whites from the team which has beaten Stoke City and Derby County in their opening two league games and scored seven goals in the process.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa has vowed to rotate the team and give chances to players who have not yet had opportunities.

His pressing style of football means the heroes of the opening two games will need a rest, and that provides opportunities for players who are waiting in the wings.

We are predicting as many as 10 changes for the Whites, including seven players who will be making their first ever competitive starts for the club.

These include Jamal Blackman, Jamie Shackleton, Jack Harrison, Lewis Baker, Yosuke Ideguchi, Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts.

Gaetano Berardi is the only player from Leeds’ opening two games who we expect to keep his place, switching from centre-back to right-back.

This game is an ideal match for leader Pontus Jansson to make his return in, and he will be needed to help a young side.

This selection would require a change of formation, playing two strikers up front, but Tyler Roberts and Patrick Roberts are both in desperate need of game time.
