Bristol City could field new-look side against Leeds

Bristol City could have seven summer signings involved as they open their Championship campaign at home to Leeds.

Daniel Bentley, Sammie Szmodics, Rene Gilmartin and Tommy Rowe are all pushing for their Robins debuts having joined the club over the summer.

City have also completed permanent deals for Jay Dasilva, Tomas Kalas and Kasey Palmer, who all spent last season on loan from Chelsea, and the trio are expected to be involved on Sunday.

Antoine Semenyo misses out as he completes a three-match suspension that started at the end of last season while fellow forward Saikou Janneh is sidelined for up to four months with a knee injury.

Leeds will be without injured duo Kemar Roofe and Luke Ayling and the suspended Gaetano Berardi.

Roofe suffered an ankle injury in Australia during pre-season, while Ayling has a similar issue which prevented him making the trip.

Berardi was sent off in United’s play-off semi-final second leg defeat to Derby last season and serves a one-match ban.

Marcelo Bielsa could hand debuts to Wolves winger Helder Costa and fellow loanee Ben White.
