West Brom will be looking to follow up their impressive draw with league leaders Liverpool when they host Leeds United on Tuesday.

Sam Allardyce’s side produced a solid defensive performance in their trip to Anfield and will have to duplicate that against the restless attack of Leeds.

The Baggies still only have one win in the league this season and sit 12 points behind Bielsa’s side whom they were promoted with after the last campaign.

As for Leeds United, a win could see them creep into the top half of the table. They’d overtake West Ham and Wolverhampton Wanderers to move into 10th.

The fixture has many notable omissions, West Brom midfielder Jake Livermore misses out due to suspension. While Hal Robson-Kanu, Kyle Bartley and Conor Townsend are also all out with injury.

As for the visitors, Leeds defender Liam Cooper is set to miss out due to an abdominal strain, while fellow centre back Diego Llorente is a doubt after a muscle issue. They join the list of central defensive absentees for Bielsa’s side with Robin Koch also sidelined long-term.

Leeds picked up 4 of the possible 6 points from the two meetings between the sides in the Championship last season, winning 1-0 at Elland Road and drawing 1-1 in the reverse.

The game kicks off at 18:00 pm on Tuesday 29th December.
