Leeds United will be looking to enhance their chances of finishing in the top two of the Championship table when they take on Swansea City this afternoon.

The West Yorkshire outfit will head into the match against Swansea on the back of a 5-0 victory over Stoke City at Elland Road in the Championship.

The Whites are at the top of the league table at the moment, level on points with second-placed West Bromwich Albion, who were in action on Saturday.

Illan Meslier will continue to play in goal and will have Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Ben White and Stuart Dallas in front of him in defence.

As usual, Kalvin Phillips – one of the best midfielders in the Championship – will be in charge of protecting the back four.

Mateusz Klich will operate in a slightly advanced position in central midfield, with Helder Costa on the right wing and Jack Harrison on the left.

Patrick Bamford will lead the line for the Whites, and it is very likely that head coach Marcelo Bielsa will bring Pablo Hernandez back into the starting lineup.

Tyler Roberts started in attacking midfield against Stoke, and he was taken off at half time for Hernandez.

Although the Spanish attacking midfielder has been recovering from a hamstring injury in recent weeks, against a strong and playoff-chasing Swansea, Bielsa could give him the nod.

Predicted Leeds United XI: Illan Meslier; Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Ben White, Stuart Dallas; Kalvin Phillips; Helder Costa, Mateusz Klich, Jack Harrison; Pablo Hernandez; Patrick Bamford
