Team News
Pascal Struijk will deputise for Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who will be unavailable for several weeks because of a shoulder injury.

Liam Cooper is a doubt due to a groin problem and Diego Llorente remains out.

Dean Smith is likely to name an unchanged side as his Aston Villa side look to go top of the table for the first time since August 2011.

MATCH FACTS
Head-to-head

Aston Villa won 2-0 in the most recent Premier League meeting in February 2004. It's one of only two victories in their past 13 fixtures against Leeds in all competitions.
This is the first match between Villa and Leeds since a 1-1 Championship draw at Elland Road in April 2019, when the hosts allowed Villa to equalise uncontested from kick-off after Mateusz Klich scored a contentious opening goal.
Aston Villa

Villa have started a season with four successive league wins for the first time since 1930-31. They have never won their opening five games.
Dean Smith's side can equal the club Premier League record of five consecutive victories, set in 1996 and matched in 1998.
Villa's current eight-match unbeaten streak is their longest in the Premier League since a run of 10 games ended in October 2011.
They can win each of their opening three home matches of a Premier League campaign for the first time since 2006-07.
The Villans are the only club not to have trailed in a Premier League fixture this season.
Villa have conceded two top-flight goals this season, four fewer than any other club.
Dean Smith is winless in all three league matches as a manager versus Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds (D2, L1).
Leeds United

The Whites are attempting to win consecutive Premier League away matches for the first time in 18 years.
They can also keep back-to-back Premier League away clean sheets for the first time since April 2002.
Leeds have seven points after five matches. The other two promoted clubs have amassed a combined three points this season.
They are one short of 100 Premier League away defeats.
Striker Patrick Bamford is looking to score in the club's first three away league matches of a season for a second consecutive year.
Pablo Hernandez has been directly involved in six goals in seven league starts against Aston Villa, with one goal and five assists.

There it is then, Villa have scored a few goals so far this season but they haven't faced Bielsa ball yet, despite our injuries I think we might just get a result here, I'm going 0-1 with Paddy nicking it

Absolutely amazing performance even more amazing without Coops, Phillips. Took Villa to the cleaners, was worried about this game but that was a masterclass!

I was worried too. Quite nervous for the first 20 mins.

Me too Stoopo, I was worried those missed chances in the first half would come back and bite us on the backside but Bamford was extraordinary second half.

Will go under the radar, I think, what with Bamford's hat-trick. Shackleton was excellent off the bench today.
