Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Leeds United could line up against Burnley for Saturday's Premier League clash.

Marcelo Bielsa is to make a late decision on whether to recall captain Liam Cooper to Leeds United's starting lineup against Burnley.

The centre-back has missed the Whites' last four games through a mixture of suspension and injury, but he has now recovered from a glute issue.

Cooper is not guaranteed a starting spot at Turf Moor on Saturday, though, with Pascal Struijk expected to get the nod alongside Diego Llorente once again.

Leeds are without a couple of players for this weekend's clash as Adam Forshaw and Helder Costa miss out through muscular and back injuries respectively.

Bielsa is unlikely to make too many changes on the back of last week's impressive 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur - a game in which Patrick Bamford scored his 15th league goal of 2020-21.

Bamford also scored the only goal in December's reverse meeting with Burnley and could become the first Whites player to score home and away against them in a season since Peter Lorimer in 1974-75.

Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha made their returns from injury as substitutes in that most recent outing and will now be considered for starting spots.

Leeds possible starting lineup: Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Struijk, Alioski; Raphinha, Dallas, Phillips, Roberts, Harrison; Bamford
