Leeds host Queens Park Rangers this weekend as they look to extend their three-game winning run in the Championship.

The tale of this game is that United are going to be plagued by an ever-growing injury list, leaving Marcelo Bielsa with no choice but to dip into the U23’s yet again.

Stuart Dallas and Liam Cooper have both been ruled out for four to six weeks, with foot and knee injuries respectively, after the away win at Bramall Lane.

Cooper was replaced by 20-year-old defender Aapo Halme in the first half, throwing the Finn in at the deep end as he made just his second senior appearance for the club.

Halme coped well as Leeds managed to keep Chris Wilder’s team at bay for the majority of the game to secure a third successive clean sheet since the 4-1 pummelling away at West Brom last month.

The area of concern for Saturday’s fixture is who will replace Stuart Dallas, the Northern Ireland international has been filling in a right back following long-term injuries to Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi.

The only other player to play that position previously in Jamie Shackleton, the 19-year-old midfielder who Bielsa earmarked earlier in the season as a young player he could trust.

QPR have had an inconsistent start to the season, but after a good spell of results find themselves in the top half of the table, meaning The Whites can by no means rest on their laurels in a game they are expected to win.

Here’s how we think Bielsa will decide line up his team…
