Marcelo Bielsa provides Leeds team news update ahead of Crystal Palace

Marcelo Bielsa has provided a team news update on his side ahead of their upcoming meeting with Crystal Palace.

Leeds vs Crystal Palace

As we head towards the busy festive period, we are being treated to our first midweek Premier League action of the season in the coming days.

One of the first clashes of the gameweek will see Leeds United play host to Crystal Palace at 8:15 pm UK time.

Leeds head into the game still struggling for form. The Peacocks sit dangerously close to the relegation zone, just three points above a Burnley side who have played one game less after their clash with Tottenham was called off on Sunday.

Leeds are also the third-lowest scorers in the division at present and have shipped 20 goals in 13 outings.

As for Crystal Palace, they had been in decent form, but they were dealt a 2-1 loss at the hands of Aston Villa in their previous outing.
