Leeds United will meet Queens Park Rangers on Sunday as they look to progress in the FA Cup.

Marcelo Bielsa will take his side to Loftus Road on the back of two Championship defeats and will look to return to winning ways against their divisional rivals.

Leeds went out to Newport County at this stage last season and the Elland Road outfit will be looking to go further in this year’s competition.

However, according to the club’s official website, Leeds will be without one of their key players for the encounter with the Londoners.

Kalvin Phillips will be unavailable for the Elland Road outfit on Sunday as he begins to serve a three-match suspension.

The defensive midfielder was shown a straight red card just before half-time in the defeat to Nottingham Forest on New Year’s Day.

Bielsa is expected to make a number of changes to his Leeds side as they look to keep things as fresh as possible for their Championship campaign.

Tyler Roberts is likely to start the match against QPR, which could see Kemar Roofe have to settle for a place on the substitutes bench.

The striker has been in red-hot form for Leeds this season and has come up with a number of crucial goals for the Whites, including a brace against Sunday’s opponents less than a month ago in the Championship.

Aapo Halme could return to the defence alongside Leif Davis, whilst Jack Clarke could get further minutes under his belt with a place in the starting XI.
