Pick your Leeds United XI to face Chelsea with key striker question to be answered

Javi Gracia is facing somewhat of a selection headache ahead of Leeds United's Premier League clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites will be looking to record successive top-flight victories when they take on the Blues this weekend following their 1-0 win over Southampton at Elland Road. A midweek FA Cup defeat to Fulham has come and gone as the focus once again shifts back to Premier League survival.

A 3-0 victory over Chelsea back in August, combined with the hosts dire form of late will give Leeds confidence that they can claim another vital three points. A win this weekend could see Gracia's side move up as high as 13th in the table should other results go their way.

The Spaniard made four changes for the 2-0 defeat to Fulham, with Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca, Crysencio Summerville and Georgino Rutter replacing Max Wober, Jack Harrison, Brenden Aaronson and Patrick Bamford.

There are also doubts over the availability of Pascal Struijk, Luis Sinisterra and Liam Cooper as Gracia revealed he was unsure whether or not they would be fit in time for the game.

Would you bring anyone who missed out on Tuesday back into the starting XI? Should Bamford and Rutter be given a go up front?

And now you can put yourself in Gracia's shoes by choosing your starting XI ahead of Leeds' top-flight clash against Chelsea on Saturday afternoon with our interactive selector tool below.
