Leeds United will be looking to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they take on Blackburn Rovers away from home in the Championship.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will head into the match against Blackburn at Ewood Park on the back of a 1-1 draw with Luton Town at Elland Road.

Liam Cooper was taken off after just 12 minutes against Luton, but that was due to a dead leg, and it is very likely that the central defender will start against Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

With Stuart Dallas injured against Luton and not having trained until Thursday, Ezgjan Alioski is likely to take his place at left-back.

The 28-year-old is a winger by trade, but under head coach Marcelo Bielsa, he has played at left-back with considerable succeed, and is set to make his first start since the season resumed last month.

Helder Costa, on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, is not having the best of times at the moment, but Bielsa is likely to persevere with the 26-year-old Portuguese winger.

This is how Leeds are likely to line up in their Championship game against Blackburn on Saturday afternoon:
