Over 38,000 fans are expected to cram their way into Elland Road when Leeds United welcome Rafa Benitez’s side.

The game, which is still 18 days away, has proven to be a big draw for the West Yorkshire club, selling out their ground for the first time since 2011.

Back then, the Whites were taking on Arsenal in a third round FA Cup replay. However, to find the last time Elland Road was sold out for a league game you would have to go back to 2010, when Leeds famously beat Bristol Rovers to secure promotion.

Although all of the general admission tickets have gone, you can still attend the match if you purchase a ticket in the hospitality areas.

The game is set to take place on the 20th of November and it will be the first time these two teams have met since the 2003/04 Premiership season.

With both sides enjoying a good run of form and a sell out crowd in attendance, this games currently has the making of an instant classic.
