West Ham vs Leeds United LIVE: Bamford misses out but injured duo return at the London Stadium
Leeds United are again at the London Stadium to face West Ham, this time in the Premier League
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Leeds United's Premier League clash against West Ham United at the London Stadium.
It's deja vu all over again for Marcelo Bielsa and his troops, as Leeds were in east London exactly a week ago for an FA Cup third round tie that saw the Hammers chalk up a 2-0 win.
As usual, injuries have dominated the Leeds United build-up, although Bielsa did raise the possibility of Pascal Struijk, Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford returning. Diego Llorente and Tyler Roberts are suspended, while the likes of Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood, Charlie Cresswell, Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips are out.
We will have all the team news as we get it, plus the rest of the build-up, match action and analysis from the London Stadium.
