Team News: Leeds have defenders Robin Koch and Diego Llorente available for their Premier League clash with Tottenham.
Koch had been expected to be out for longer following the head injury he suffered against Manchester United last weekend but has been declared fit along with Llorente, who was substituted at half-time in that match and missed the midweek loss to Liverpool.
Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Dallas, Koch, Struijk, Klich, Harrison, Raphinha, James, Roberts, Rodrigo, Shackleton, Forshaw, Gelhardt, Summerville, Bate, Klaesson, McCarron, Jenkins, Moore, Cresswell.
Midfielder Kalvin Phillips and defender Liam Cooper (both hamstring) are still likely to be several weeks away from returning while there is no timeframe yet for striker Patrick Bamford’s recovery from a foot problem but head coach Marcelo Bielsa believes he will be available this season.
Tottenham will be without Rodrigo Bentancur for the visit to Elland Road.
The Uruguayan suffered an ankle injury in the defeat to Burnley. Fellow midfielder Oliver Skipp (groin) and defender Japhet Tanganga (knee) also miss out.

Team News: Christian Eriksen should make his Brentford debut in Saturday’s Premier League match against Newcastle.
The Denmark international has built up his match fitness in behind-closed-doors fixtures and is in line to make a first competitive appearance since suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch at Euro 2020 in June last year.
Bees striker Ivan Toney has recovered from a calf issue, while defenders Mathias Jorgensen (thigh) and Julian Jeanvier (knee) and midfielder Tariqe Fosu (thigh) all remain sidelined.

Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe hopes to have striker Allan Saint-Maximin available for the trip to west London.
The Frenchman has been in Monaco this week for specialised and intense treatment on the calf injury which kept him out of last weekend’s 1-1 draw at West Ham and the Magpies will make a late decision on him.
Winger Ryan Fraser has recovered from a hamstring problem and Javier Manquillo’s ankle injury is improving, but fellow full-back Kieran Trippier (fractured metatarsal), midfielder Matt Ritchie (knee) and striker Callum Wilson (calf) are still out.
Dubravka, Darlow, Manquillo, Murphy, Targett, Dummett, Krafth, Burn, Schar, Lascelles, Fernandez, Shelvey, Guimaraes, S. Longstaff, Willock, Fraser, Almiron, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin, Wood, Gayle.

Seagulls boss Graham Potter confirmed that Webster has suffered a setback in his recovery from a groin injury, while Mwepu’s hamstring problem will not clear up in time for the game.

Villa boss Steven Gerrard has no new injury concerns, with Bertrand Traore (hamstring) and Marvelous Nakamba (knee) remaining sidelined.

Team News: Everton’s Demarai Gray and Abdoulaye Doucoure both return to the squad for the visit of Manchester City.
Gray has been sidelined for two matches with a hip injury, while Doucoure’s groin problem has meant this will be the first time Lampard has had him available for selection since taking charge a month ago.
Lampard will have talks with Ukraine international Vitalii Mykolenko before deciding on his participation.

Pep Guardiola also said that Ukraine international Oleksandr Zinchenko is available for the match and in the right frame of mind to play despite his deep concerns over the crisis in his home country.

PART ONE | What did Antonio Conte mean with his comments about his future, and where has it all gone wrong? Was Ralf Rangnick right to criticise Man Utd’s players when praising Anthony Elanga, and is he doing a better job than he’s given credit for?
PART TWO | Is there any hope for Everton against Manchester City on Saturday, after the Premier League leaders’ defeat at Spurs last week? Plus we discuss why criticism of City over their lack of a No 9 may be missing the mark, and just how worried Frank Lampard should be about the Toffees’ relegation fight.
PART THREE | The Carabao Cup final – who is this game bigger for? Has Liverpool’s squad depth leapfrogged Chelsea’s, and not just thanks to Luis Diaz? What do we do with Romelu Lukaku – and can Kai Havertz steal his place?
