Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Leeds United could line up in Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Leeds United will be aiming to continue their impressive run of form when they welcome rivals Manchester United to Elland Road on Sunday afternoon.

The Whites are unbeaten in their last five in the Premier League - a run of form that has left them in 10th position in the table, some 19 points clear of the relegation zone.

Marcelo Bielsa's side will again be without the services of captain Liam Cooper this weekend through suspension, while Rodrigo and Adam Forshaw are both on the sidelines through injury.

Raphinha has not been entirely ruled out of the contest, but the recent arrival is yet to train this week due to a thigh problem, and it seems unlikely that he will be available to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

As a result, Bielsa could decide to name the same starting XI from the clash with Liverpool, where Diego Llorente scored a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

Patrick Bamford has been excellent for the Whites this season and will again lead the line, while Raphinha's expected absence should see Helder Costa feature in a wide area once again.

Mateusz Klich and Robin Koch are among those pushing for positions in the side, but the manner of the performance against Liverpool means that changes are unlikely against Man United.

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