After a much-needed victory over Norwich last time out, Leeds will look to make it two wins on the bounce against a high-flying Wolves side.

Unfortunately for Jesse Marsch, his squad continues to be blighted by injuries which could leave him struggling for options on the bench, which clearly won't help his cause.

Here's how his Leeds team could look.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Illan Meslier (GK) - Still heralded as one of the Premier League's top young goalkeepers, but it's nearly four months since his last clean sheet.

Luke Ayling (RB) - The 30-year-old has been wearing the captain's armband in recent months, but could be giving it back to Liam Cooper soon.

Diego Llorente (CB) - Llorente has been in and out of the squad this season but helped beat Norwich in his first game under Marsch.

Pascal Struijk (CB) - Young Struijk appears to be ahead of Robin Koch in the pecking order under Marsch.

Stuart Dallas (LB) - Junior Firpo will miss at least another three weeks while he recovers from a knee injury, so the versatile Dallas will be needed here.

2. Midfielders

Adam Forshaw (DM) - Kalvin Phillips is back in training and may well see some minutes off the bench, but this spot is still Forshaw's for now.

Mateusz Klich (DM) - There's no Jamie Shackleton or Lewis Bate after the pair picked up injuries with the Under-23s, so Marsch is short on options.

Rodrigo (AM) - Rodrigo is battling a thigh injury but Marsch is confident that the Spaniard will be raring to go.

3. Forwards

Patrick Bamford

Raphinha (RW) - Reportedly has a relegation release clause of just £25m. Leeds cannot afford to lose him for that price.

Patrick Bamford (ST) - Bamford isn't fully fit yet either, but young Joe Gelhardt may be unable to replace him through injury.

Daniel James (LW) - James has been a key source of goals for Leeds in recent months and will likely keep his place.
