Leeds United vs Swansea City - Leeds set for Liam Cooper boost

Leeds captain Liam Cooper is expected to return to action in the top-of-the-table clash with Swansea.

Cooper has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury, but is back in contention as Marcelo Bielsa’s side bid to extend their unbeaten league start.

Bielsa, who made eight changes for the midweek Carabao Cup penalty shoot-out defeat to Stoke, has confirmed he has a fully-fit squad to choose from barring Luke Ayling and Tyler Roberts.

Defender Ayling (ankle surgery) and forward Roberts (knee) have yet to feature this season, but are both back in training.

Swansea head coach Steve Cooper is likely to revert back to the line-up which started last week’s home win against Birmingham.

Cooper made 11 changes for Wednesday night’s 6-0 thrashing of Cambridge but is expected to keep faith with the side which has taken 13 points from their first five league games.

Fit-again midfielder Tom Carroll made his first appearance in 10 months against the U’s and could be included in the squad.

Injured wingers Nathan Dyer (hamstring) and Aldo Kalulu (ankle) will be monitored but remain doubtful.
