    Tuesday @ 8.15pm, live on Amazon Prime.

    After Saturday's disappointing result and performance we could really do with taking something from this one to stop us slipping back into the relegation chat. We were unbeaten in seven games before Villa so certainly no need to panic, but we'll have to deal a lot better with Leeds' pressing than we did on Saturday if we want to come home with a result.

    Unlike Bielsa PV has a wealth of options to choose from (particularly in the final third) so it'll be interesting to see who he goes with. I'd like to see us take the game to them and go with an attacking line-up but it's almost nailed on we'll see Ayew back in the side. Milivojevic was absolutely dreadful on Saturday so he has to be benched (and should've been already). I'd put Schlupp in but this could be the game we finally see Will Hughes. Guessing Andersen is still out.

    Guaita
    Ward Guehi Tomkins Mitchell
    Gallagher Kouyate Schlupp
    Edouard Beneke Zaha​

    Olise/Eze to come on in the latter stages.

    Hopefully Eze doesn't start, he seems to always tear us apart.

    Palace and then Brentford in back to back home games for us. The sort of games we need to start winning. That said, we will need to play a whole lot better than we did on Saturday to take anything against a good Palace side.

    Doubt Eze will start but he came on against Villa so should be involved at some point.

    If we can avoid giving away any corners or free-kicks in our own half we might have a chance of not conceding 2+. Think I'm right in saying set pieces aren't exactly Leeds' strong point either but we're so shit at defending them you're bound to get a chance.

    2-3 Palace. I’ll be disappointed if that midfield isn’t shaken up a bit.

    I woukd think about Edouard through the middle and Hughes to replace Milivojevic but taking out 2 biggers guys is a massive risk considering corners and free kicks

    I'm hopeful of a decent performance from us, we only have Bamford, Ayling and Koch injured now so not really any excuses for not performing.

    We were poor v Brighton so expect a bit of fight.

    Probably end up a score draw, neither team has been able to defend the last couple of games.

    Exactly the team I would've picked apart from Ayew over Benteke.

    This has 1-0 Leeds all over it.

    Ayew's been our main outlet but his end product is so poor.

    Fully expecting Kevin Friend to send off one of our players for nothing as well. Such a gutless ref.

    Oh my God Benteke.

    Tbf we've been dreadful this half but that's the best chance of the game by a mile.

    Game is anyone's now.

    Embarrassing from Leeds supporters chanting for VAR. Robbed of a point. Hughes needs to start the next game very impressed with him. These late game changing goals are going to kill me by the end of the season.

    So obvious.

    Mixed bag for us tonight but think that's a harsh result overall. Draw would've been fair.

    Can't argue with the pen though, not that Kevin Friend even saw it the blind prick.

    Drama at the end sounds like a draw would have been a fairer result.

    I don't get why he needed to be booked. It was a penalty fair enough but it was hardly intended.

    The refereeing in this division is at an all time low and this decision once again proves it.

    Leeds Centre back completely misses the ball and Guehi behind him whose challenging can do nothing about it hitting his hand laughable decision.

    Sounds like he was unlucky but always going to be given if the arm is in the air.
