Premier League: How did the season unfold?

Leeds United’s relentless run of pre-season games continues with a trip to take on a familiar face.

Simon Grayson’s Fleetwood Town represent the latest challenge for the Whites.

Grayson spent just over three years in charge at Elland Road, the highlight of which saw him lead them out of League One in 2010.

This latest warm-up game represents a third friendly for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the space of four days after outings earlier in the week at Guiseley and Blackburn Rovers.

Bielsa is continuing to put his players through their paces ahead of their Premier League opener at Manchester United next month.

Ahead of the Fleetwood game, here’s all you need to know.

Match odds

As is the norm with pre-season games, no odds are being offered.

Team news

Bielsa is likely to shuffle his pack, having played most of his first team at Blackburn on Wednesday night.

That game saw a debut for new signing Junior Firpo, with stars such as Robin Koch, Raphinha and Mateusz Klich also featuring.

United are due to face Real Betis just 24 hours after this game.

With that in mind, Bielsa may decide to split his squad in half between the two matches or use a large contingent of under-23 players and save his stronger players for the Betis game.

He did that for the Guiseley clash, with only a smattering of first-teamers playing.

Patrick Bamford, Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips weren’t involved in either midweek game but may well come into contention here.
