    Leeds United - v - Sheffield United ***Matchday Thread***



    TEAM NEWS

    Leeds captain Liam Cooper is available after missing two matches before the international break because of illness.

    Rodrigo and Pablo Hernandez have recovered from muscle strains but Mateusz Klich could miss out after a recent positive test for coronavirus.

    John Egan might be fit for Sheffield United following a six-week absence with a dislocated toe.

    Enda Stevens has overcome the unspecified injury that caused him to return early from international duty.

    Sheffield United were extremely competitive in their last game, against Chelsea in the FA Cup, but they still lost.

    That's been the story of the Blades' season, really, and the only thing still in doubt is when their relegation will be confirmed.

    Leeds edged it 1-0 with an 86th-minute winner when these two sides met at Bramall Lane at the start of the season.

    MATCH FACTS

    Head-to-head

    Leeds are vying to complete a first league double over their Yorkshire rivals since 1991-92.

    Sheffield United could beat Leeds in three successive league meetings at Elland Road for the first time.However, the Blades have won on just one of their past 15 top-flight visits to Leeds (D4, L10).

    Each of the past three league encounters has ended in a 1-0 away victory.

    Leeds United

    Leeds can become the first promoted side to win 13 of their first 30 Premier League matches in a season since Reading in 2006-07.However, they could equal their Premier League club record of failing to score in three consecutive home games, set on five occasions.

    The Whites have won all four of their meetings with sides in the relegation zone by an aggregate score of 12-4.Their Premier League fixtures have produced an unrivalled 92 goals this season.

    Leeds' tally of 45 goals is the most by a promoted team at this stage of a top-flight season since Sunderland's 46 in 1999-00.

    Sheffield United

    The Blades have lost five successive away games in all competitions without scoring.

    They have equalled the record for most defeats after 29 matches of a top-flight season: 23, set by Sunderland in 2005-06. The Black Cats lost their 30th league fixture too.

    Their only goal in seven league and cup fixtures was David McGoldrick's Premier League winner at home to Aston Villa on 3 March.

    Sheffield United are the division's lowest scorers, with 16 goals, and could go four competitive games in a row without scoring for the first time since April 2000.

    They have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their past 19 Premier League away matches.

    Current caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom was in charge of Leeds for 16 games in 2018 before being replaced by Marcelo Bielsa. His first competitive match in charge of the Whites was a 2-1 Championship defeat at Sheffield United.

    3 - 0.

    It's on Amazon Prime.

    Surprised to see Cooper in for Struijk who has done nothing wrong.

    Astounded that Donkey Roberts is in the starting 11. Strongest bench we have had for a while.
