It’s a perfect three from three for Leeds United so far in the Sky Bet Championship after victories over Stoke City (3-1), Derby County (4-1) and Rotherham (2-0). In just under an hour they will be looking to add Swansea City to their ‘W’ column.

Marcelo Bielsa has already become the first Leeds United manager in history to win his opening four games in charge, the above three and a 2-1 Carabao Cup victory over Bolton Wanderers to give the Argentinian a perfect quartet of victories.

Leeds are playing a brand of football that is exciting both pundits and Whites fans alike as the fever around Bielsaball is starting to take hold. Starving the opposition of possession has led to the opening three Sky Bet Championship wins as Bielsa stamps his particular brand of football on England.

Swansea are known for playing a more open and expansive game themselves, something that Leeds didn’t face against Rotherham last time out. The Millers came to Elland Road on Saturday and simply ‘parked the bus’, making Leeds play through them. Still, the Whites showed enough creativity and panache on the day to open up their South Yorkshire visitors and gain the win.

From South Yorkshire to South Wales it is for tonight’s game at the Liberty Stadium with Leeds United looking to win at the home of the Swans for the first time since the 1960’s .

Leeds United Starting XI

The starting XI shows no changes to the one that started against Rotherham. On the bench, there was one enforced change after Pontus Jansson’s back injury during training this week. His replacement is Conor Shaughnessy with the young former Reading player making potentially his first appearance of the season.

With this being the team that Marcelo Bielsa thinks will unlock a resolute Swansea side, here’s what some Leeds United fans have been saying over on Twitter:
