Wont be easy, Everton are a better away team this season than a home one and so are we unfortunately.

With our injuries we really are down to Championship squad and as Norwich, Sheffield United etc found out that only gets you so far in this league.

That being said we have every chance imo.

Meslier

Ayling
Struijk
Coops
Ali

KP

Costa (unfortunately) Summerville (i hope).
Harrison
Dallas (because i think Pablo is done here sadly)
Klich.

Paddy.

Thats what i expect.

I dont like Dallas at cm it generally hasnt worked, did vs Leicester so im fine with him at cm.

Costa has looked devoid of confidence for ages, u23 reports suggest he was poor again and he missed from less than 6 yards out.

He shouldn't start but he is part of MB's main group so he will.
Costa did miss from 6 yards out, a dropping cross/ball he hit first time with the side of his foot...very difficult technique. Your sources are wrong he played 45 and dominated the game for us...including hitting the post and forcing a decent save all the while linking well with Drameh

Don't get me wrong, would love to see Summerville and Huggins. Both look real talents, and Drameh will be starting for us next season at some point.

Yes, I thought he played well too. However it is the U23s so does not tell us everything. Maybe he just needs the minutes to get sharp? I think he does have talent, and perhaps will surprise us all come Wednesday.

Costa missed a sitter for the U23s today, Bielsa will have noted both that and his crap introduction against Leicester, so at a stretch we might get an alternative starter or sub on the wing.

Huggins scored, but Gelhardt was the standout today, I hope he gets a run late on v Everton if the scoreline permits.

From Ancelotti's press conference

“Delph is back in the squad, Allan not yet, Gbamin not yet. Pickford is out with a side injury. He won’t be available for the game [tomorrow] but I hope for Saturday.”

More from Ancelotti

On Leeds
“Leeds are in a good position, it’s always entertaining games against them. Of course it will be difficult, they beat us at Goodison. We have confidence because away usually we do better, but we have to know it will be a game with a lot of intensity"

On Bielsa
“I met him only one time and it was not good for me, because we lost! I hope to equalise tomorrow!”

On Bamford
“Honestly I didn’t know Bamford, he plays really well and is a really god striker. I didn’t know him before, but I have to say he is a fantastic striker. Maybe Dominic is more powerful, but in-game Bamford is really intelligent.”

Playing in the premier league as oppose to youth level is a totally different ball game as you implied Lumi.

Costa is not the answer!

One for sure, we're going to need to watch the antics of Richarlison and Rodriguez. They're prone to throwing themselves to the ground looking for free kicks and penalties, so Cooper needs to keep his shirt pulling and man-handling to a minimum.

Wont be able to watch this one tomorrow.

Everton may not be top six but they have some cracking players.

Richarlison is such a bleeding cheat.

So many variables here. The new pitch, who's injured, pickford being out for them (he's a liability for me) I think Everton would probably fit into the dogged category in the bits i have seen from them. It may be a bit of a slog without our star man. No doubt DCL will be a threat from SP.

I may be tempted by a midfield of Dallas Klich Shack Harrison, and bring Pablo on later in the game. You get better defensive cover with Dallas, and Shack brings extra legs. Costa is a liability when it comes to defending. Difficult one to call this. Everton are also inconsistent.

Sadly if the news is true about Pablo's home club being interested in him... then it could well be is last season here at Leeds. At Pablo's age there is no point sitting on the bench every week in the rain. It will be a travesty that the fans can't give him the rousing sendoff he deserves.

Just reading one of their forums (grandoldteam) its chalk and cheese compared to the LC boards. The LC fans thought it was a walk in the park and were thinking in terms of how many goals they would beat us by. In contrast the Everton fans are very negative in their outlook and lots of them predicting a loss. Most of them want a defensive formation with the chance of nicking a goal. Must be the Ancelotti effect.

I know LC were on a great run and Everton have taken 1 point from 6 but the contrast sums up how fickle fans are.

I'm not expecting much from the new pitch.
The weather has been awful recently: heavy rain some days, cold and miserable most days, some with snow.
At least it will be well watered in.

Leeds Live has posted the 'squad' and Raphinha, Rodrigo and Bamford are are in it but I reckon they have just included everyone without any real knowledge of whether they are available or not.
