Leeds United pair Raphinha and Rodrigo are back in contention for their game against Brighton in the Premier League.

The Elland Road club are hoping to pick up a win and create distance between themselves and the relegation zone.

In a massive boost for coach Marcelo Bielsa, winger Raphinha and attacker Rodrigo are both fit.

Raphinha has recovered from an illness, while Rodrigo missed the 2-1 loss to Tottenham due to a foot injury.

Coach Marcelo Bielsa said: "[Jamie] Shackleton is available, Raphinha is available, Rodrigo is available, [Luke] Ayling is healthy - it's likely he will play with the under-23s on Monday.

"The only two players in the final period of their recovery are [Robin] Koch and [Patrick] Bamford, who has an ankle injury. It has been a serious injury."
