The Swans take on the West Yorkshire side, who have a perfect record in the Championship so far this season, at the Liberty Stadium

Leeds United take a midweek trip to Liberty Stadium on Tuesday to take on Swansea City in a bid to continue their early-season success.

Both sides have had good starts to the campaign, with Marcelo Bielsa's side opening their season with three league victories in a row, including a 2-0 win over Rotherham on Saturday.

The Swans have won two out of three games in the Championship since relegation, dropping points last week in a 0-0 draw with Birmingham City.

The two sides haven't met since the 2010-11 season, which resulted in a 3-0 victory for the Swans, however Leeds are confident of another win taking them ahead of current table-toppers Middlesbrough

Match Preview


Leeds manager Bielsa has already had a successful run with Leeds since taking over at the start of the season but is prepared ahead of tonight's match. 

”This competition has different kinds of difficulties, and you have to face each one fully prepared," Bielsa told reporters ahead of the game. 

Swansea manager Graham Potter has spoken about his respect for Bielsa, who is a global managerial icon , and doesn't expect Leeds to be an easy side to play. 

"I have been very impressed with them, they will be the strongest side we have faced so far,” Potter said in his pre-match press conference.

"They have had convincing wins over Stoke and Derby and got some good players. They are organised and a strong test."

Swansea have had a decent run in their first season back in the Championship after getting relegated last season, with two wins and a draw under their belt. The Swans currently sit two points behind second-placed Leeds.
