Speaking ahead of the clash, Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa spoke glowingly of opposition manager Pep Guardiola, claiming: “He's a magical man. What he knows how to do is extremely difficult for me to try [to copy] and I’ve already given up, but I have genuine admiration for what he does.

“Interpreting the novel decisions that he incorporates into a game is already a way of falling in love with football.

“We [at Leeds] try to do what we do better and better. I don't have many other options than to try to ensure that what I understand should be done, is done better and better, because I have no imagination for very different things.”

Meanwhile, in the Championship, Barnsley continue to battle for an unprecedented play-off place, while the likes of Rotherham United, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town are involved in a brutal relegation battle that looks set to go down to the wire.
