LEEDS United ace Crysencio Summerville admitted he is looking forward to the "challenge" of facing Saints full-back Kyle Walker-Peters.

Summerville, who scored the Whites' fourth goal against Norwich in the semi-final, has been a key man for Daniel Farke's side this year.

The 22 year old winger is the Championship player of the season, having scored 20 goals and provided nine assists.

Only Southampton's Adam Armstrong (36) and Blackburn Rovers' Sammie Szmodics (31) have provided more goal contributions than him.

However, Walker-Peters and his fellow defenders managed to keep Summerville rather quiet across the two regular games - both won by Saints.

Ahead of his third meeting with Russell Martin's side, the former Feyenoord man is relishing another battle with two-time England international Walker-Peters.

Speaking to Leeds Live, the Dutch youth international said: “He’s one of the best right-backs in the Championship.

"He was in the team of the season as well. I like to challenge myself against the best, so I’m looking forward to the duel.”

Summerville will likely be supported on the left-hand side by former Barcelona man Junior Firpo, 27.

The left-back was caught napping in Southampton's 2-1 win over Leeds earlier this month, allowing Walker-Peters to find Will Smallbone for the winning goal.

Despite that costly lapse in concentration, Summerville explained how the duo have developed a strong understanding this season.

He said: “Through the season our connection grew a lot. I love to play with Junior on the left and we feel each other like water. I can only say it’s been good.

“Normally, some people could take a shot, but he had a look, saw me and thought ‘Okay, Cree is in a better position’ so he played me the ball.”
