Leeds United are taking Aston Villa at Elland Road this weekend hoping to continue their good form.

Leeds beat 3-0 Southampton last time out, and also hammered Villa 3-0 earlier in the season when Patrick Bamford scored a hat-trick.

Only one points separates the two sides, who are both in the top half and looking to push up towards the European places.

Jack Grealish remains out for Villa, while Leeds are missing midfield lynchpin Kalvin Phillips.
