Host commentator

1min: We’re off and underway! Leeds have got the ball rolling, kicking from left to right.

The teams are out at Elland Road and we’re just minutes away from kick-off!

Let’s have some last minute score predictions. Who are you tipping to come out on top?

We’re almost ready for the action to get underway! 

Now is the time to flip that kettle on and settle down – because this promises to be another feast of Premier League football. 

In the meantime, here’s how both teams shape up…

And yes, Palace only have six substitutes. I thought i’d miscounted, but no.

Leeds: Meslier, Ayling, Struijk, Cooper, Alioski, Phillips, Dallas, Harrison, Klich, Raphinha, Bamford

Substitutes: Casilla, Cresswell, Davis, Shackleton, Jenkins, Huggins, Costa, Roberts, Gelhardt

Crystal Palace: Guaita, Clyne, Cahill, Dann, Mitchell, Milivojevic, Riedewald, Ayew, Eze, Van Aanholt, Mateta

Substitutes: Butland, Kelly, Kouyate, Townsend, Benteke, Batshuayi

This will be the first Premier League encounter between these two teams at Elland Road since the 1997/98 campaign.

There, Leeds lost 2-0 under George Graham.

But what will the result be today? There isn’t long to find out now!

Right then, we’re edging ever closer to this 8pm kick-off in a very chilly Yorkshire.

The players are out on the pitch and going through their pre-match paces.

I’m expecting goals in this one. You’ll be pleased to know I said the same for yesterday’s game at Anfield. Look how that one turned out.



Leeds absolutely love scoring goals. They’re also quite partial to conceding them, however.

It is this chaotic, free-flowing style that has endeared them to their fanbase and impressed neutrals.

Boss Marcelo Bielsa has even insisted he would rather Leeds finished in the bottom half than make compromises over their identity.

Both Leeds and Crystal Palace have enjoyed good starts to the season and are, for now, well adrift of the bottom three.

A win tonight will have them looking up the table, perhaps, rather than glancing nervously over their shoulder.

They’re both on 29 points, with Leeds higher in 11th due to their better goal difference.

A win would move either of them above Arsenal and into 10th. 

The absence of star man Wilfried Zaha is a big one for Crystal Palace.

Roy Hodgson confirmed he would miss this clash, and ‘possibly much longer’, after picking up a hamstring injury in the win at Newcastle.

Welcome to the Premier League, Jean-Philippe Mateta!

He is starting tonight on his Crystal Palace debut after joining on loan from Mainz.

Both Christian Benteke and Michy Batshuayi are on the bench this evening.

Leeds are unchanged from the team that lost out to Everton at Elland Road on Wednesday. 

It’s a very youthful bench – with eight U21s players named in the squad. That’s a record for the club.

Starting XI: Guaita, Clyne, Cahill, Dann, Mitchell, Milivojevic, Riedewald, Ayew, Eze, Van Aanholt, Mateta

Substitutes: Butland, Kelly, Kouyate, Townsend, Benteke, Batshuayi

Starting XI: Meslier, Ayling, Struijk, Cooper, Alioski, Phillips, Dallas, Harrison, Klich, Raphinha, Bamford

Substitutes: Casilla, Cresswell, Davis, Shackleton, Jenkins, Huggins, Costa, Roberts, Gelhardt

Hello, all! Welcome along to Sportsmail’s live coverage of tonight’s only Premier League clash.

It’s Leeds United vs Crystal Palace at Elland Road under the lights. 

Both teams will be looking to climb into the top half of the table – and will be able to do just that by taking all three points.

Let’s kick off our coverage with the team news…
