Mike van der Hoorn

Mike van der Hoorn makes his 100th Swansea City appearance against Leeds United as part of an unchanged side from the win over Birmingham.

Having seen his side produce a performance ranked as the best of his shirt tenure to date, head coach Steve Cooper has elected to stick with the same matchday squad for today’s top-of-the-table clash at Elland Road.

That means Freddie Woodman continues in goal with Connor Roberts, van der Hoorn, Joe Rodon and Jake Bidwell making up the back four.

Captain Matt Grimes is partnered by Jay Fulton in midfield, with Andre Ayew, Yan Dhanda and Bersant Celina ahead of them.

In-form Borja Baston – enjoying the best goalscoring start to a season by a Swansea player since Lee Trundle in 2004 – leads the line.

Leeds United: Kiko Casilla, Adam Forshaw, Ben White, Liam Cooper (captain), Patrick Bamford, Ezgjan Alioski, Stuart Dallas, Pablo Hernandez, Jack Harrison, Kalvin Phillips, Mateusz Klich.

Subs: Illan Meslier, Barry Douglas, Eddie Nketiah, Helder Costa, Gaetano Berardi, Alfie McCalmont, Jamie Shackleton.

Swansea City: Freddie Woodman; Connor Roberts, Mike van der Hoorn, Joe Rodon, Jake Bidwell; Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes (captain); Andre Ayew, Yan Dhanda, Bersant Celina; Borja Baston.
