A lot of Leeds United fans have replied to a post from Phil Hay, which has relayed team news from Marcelo Bielsa ahead of the Whites’ clash with Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

Bielsa confirmed that Liam Cooper, Diego Llorente and Tyler Roberts are all available and the only player who will be missing is Kalvin Phillips as he is suspended.

This has drawn in these Leeds fans who are thrilled with this news.

Finally get to see Llorente hopefully”

@barney___21

Robert’s available. That’s made my weekend”

@kevingaff

Love to see it”

@joshbatty1995

Are you happy with this team news?

Yes, this is great

Yes, this is great

No, we don't need these players

No, we don't need these players

The news that Cooper and Llorente are back is probably particularly good as over the last few league games Bielsa had to play Luke Ayling, a natural right-back, alongside Pascal Struijk, who hasn’t even made 20 senior appearances for the Whites.

So, this is good news, and this post continued to draw in happy Leeds fans.

Great chance for Cooper and llorente to forge a partnership now, seeing as koch won’t be available for some time, and finally will see ayling marauding down the right again”

@beargryllz

Great news on Llorente tbf”

@ronaallleeds

Yeeeees what about meslier”

@LUFC205

Leeds head into the match against the Seagulls off the back of an appalling 3-0 defeat to Crawley Town in the FA Cup, so you would expect a reaction from Bielsa’s side and clearly many Whites fans are happy with this team news.
