Leeds head to Villa Park on Sunday lunchtime looking to extend their winning run to six games for the first time since September 2009. 

This is the only fixture yet to be played and many believe it will be United’s toughest against the free scoring Villains.

The team top of the Championship on Christmas day has promoted automatically in each of the previous 10 seasons, giving Whites fans plenty of reasons to be excited. 

However, Bielsa will be under no illusions that a trip to Dean Smith’s Villa is going to be straight forward and the Argentine has already likened it to the fixture at the Hawthorns last month, where Leeds were handed a 4-1 beating.

Leeds have been handed a major boost this week as Bielsa announced at his pre-match press conference that defender Luke Ayling is available again since picking up an injury against Nottingham Forest back in October.
