Leeds: Adam Forshaw expected to miss Crystal Palace game

Leeds: Adam Forshaw expected to miss Crystal Palace game -Leeds United News

Leeds United midfielder Adam Forshaw could be missing again for Sunday’s meeting with Crystal Palace, according to journalist Rahman Osman.

The Lowdown: Villa absence

Forshaw, hailed as a ‘fantastic professional’ by former Leeds boss Simon Grayson, has had plenty of injury struggles at Elland Road – the 30-year-old missed a whopping 71 games with a hip problem during Marcelo Bielsa’s time in charge.

The central midfielder did make 22 Premier League appearances last season and has made four appearances in all competitions during the current campaign.

However, Forshaw was missing from the squad in Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Aston Villa with a twisted ankle, and it seems as if he could be absent again this weekend.

The Latest: Team news

London World reporter Osman shared a story on Monday regarding four players ‘who are definitely out of the visit to Crystal Palace this weekend’.

One of those was Forshaw, with Osman saying that although Forshaw’s recovery is going well, the tip to Selhurst Park ‘will come too soon for him’.

The Verdict: Not ideal

Jesse Marsch had limited midfield options from the bench against Villa, with Mateusz Klich the only out-and-out midfielder available to come on.

Therefore, Forshaw missing out once again wouldn’t be ideal for the Whites, who will also be without winger Luis Sinisterra through suspension and Archie Gray and Stuart Dallas through injury.

Hopefully, Forshaw will be back relatively soon, with Leeds having a busy few weeks prior to the break before domestic football stops for the World Cup.
