Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed Pablo Hernandez will replace Jack Clarke in the only change from Saturday’s draw at Middlesbrough.

Clarke is under observation after being taken to hospital during the match.

Gaetano Berardi and Stuart Dallas are building their fitness, while Adam Forshaw (knee) is out for 10 days.

Striker Oli McBurnie could return to the Swansea line-up after illness restricted him to the substitutes’ bench against Millwall.

Dutch midfielder Leroy Fer (hamstring) remains sidelined.

Meanwhile, Swans boss Graham Potter thinks winger Daniel James will relish the chance to play at Elland Road after the collapse of his proposed move to Leeds on transfer deadline day.
