SELECTION DILEMMA: Who do Leeds pick for Old Trafford trip?

Leeds United will get their Premier League season underway away at Old Trafford against rivals Manchester United with fans guessing the starting XI.

In particular, an abundance of talent at centre-half has got supporters talking about who will be first choice.

Robin Koch, Liam Cooper and Pascal Struijk have new competition from Junior Firpo who signed from Barcelona this summer.

Diego Llorente is another centre-back option but will miss Leeds United's trip to Old Trafford due to injury.

Above, Jonny and Max discussed the team selection dilemma on the Bremner Square podcast, which streams live on Facebook every week.

Contracts

 

In other Leeds news, Illan Meslier has put pen to paper on a new five-year contract with Leeds in a boost to the club ahead of their Premier League season-opener.

A day after head coach Marcelo Bielsa signed a one-year deal to remain at the helm in West Yorkshire, Leeds announced their first-choice goalkeeper has committed his long-term future to the club.

The Frenchman initially moved to Elland Road on a season-long loan from Lorient, moving ahead of Kiko Casilla in the pecking order for the second half of the campaign, as Leeds achieved promotion back to the top-flight.

Meslier made his move permanent last summer and went on to make 35 Premier League appearances in the 2020-21 campaign, keeping 11 clean sheets and helping Leeds to an impressive ninth-place finish.

At just 21 years and 54 days, he became the youngest Premier League goalkeeper to record 10 clean sheets.

His encouraging displays led to him making his France Under-21s debut in May.
