Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa says he won't make big changes ahead of Leicester City game

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa affirmed that he won't be making drastic changes to his squad amid the threat that Leicester City's Jamie Vardy poses.

Leeds will take on Leicester on Monday as they look to secure three points however despite home ground advantage, Bielsa is aware of Vardy's current top form in which he has registered six goals in five matches played.

“They’re a team who manage the ball well and have the spirit to attack. Vardy’s a very good player who scores lots of goals and he’s very quick,” Bielsa told reporters on Friday.

“Of course we take into account all the characteristics of the opponents’ attackers but there won’t be any particular change with that in mind.

"They’re a team who have been playing the same style of football for some time now.

“All the teams in the Premier League are at a high level and they present to you similar challenges. There are some teams who are above the rest, but the rest, in general, are all difficult to face.”

Bielsa also revealed that Liam Cooper will be returning to the squad after recovering from a groin problem, while Diego Llorente and Kalvin Phillips won't be available for selection due to groin and shoulder injuries respectively.
