Leeds striker Tyler Roberts will make his first league start since October in the top-of-the-table clash against Norwich.
Roberts made a positive impact off the bench in last week's win at Rotherham and boss Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed he will be one of two changes. Pontus Jansson is back from suspension and will replace Kalvin Phillips at the heart of defence and defender Barry Douglas is set to return to the bench.
Izzy Brown will continue to build up his match sharpness with the development squad, while Gaetano Berardi, Patrick Bamford and Stuart Dallas are all out.
Norwich could include new signing Philip Heise in their squad following the German left-sided player's permanent switch from Dynamo Dresden. Midfielder Emiliano Buendia recovered from a dead leg in time to play 88 minutes in last week's home draw against Sheffield United and is expected to be fit.
Midfielder Louis Thompson (dislocated shoulder) and striker Carlton Morris (knee/ankle) are still out. Alex Tettey (abductor muscle), Moritz Leitner (ankle) and Timm Klose (knee) are long-term absentees.
Leeds are looking to complete a league double over Norwich for the first time since the 1980-81 season.
Norwich have won just one of their last nine visits to Leeds in all competitions (D4 L4), a 2-0 win in April 2015.
Leeds have lost three of their last five Championship games (W2), as many as they had in their previous 25 in the competition (W16 D6 L3).
Norwich have lost just one of their last 17 Championship matches (W10 D6), and are unbeaten in their last 12 on the road (W6 D6).
Leeds' Pablo Hernandez (11) has provided more assists than any other Championship player this season.
Norwich's Teemu Pukki has been directly involved in 16 goals in his last 14 league games (12 goals, 4 assists).
What a game this should be on Saturday evening! The top two meet at Elland Road and you know both will be going all out to claim all three points.
Leeds turned up at Carrow Road in August and absolutely cruised past Norwich, but Daniel Farke's side are a totally different proposition now and this should be a lot closer. There will be goals in this one but I have to go for a Leeds win.
David Prutton predicts: 3-2 (25/1 with Sky Bet)
