The Lowdown: Six doubts
Leeds are currently joint-bottom of the Premier League heading into this evening’s tough fixture at Anfield, and their task of getting anything against Jurgen Klopp’s side has been made even harder.
Jesse Marsch spoke to the media on Thursday and shared a number of worrying updates on the Leeds squad. Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw remain out, and as reported by Adam Pope, Leo Hjelde, Joe Gelhardt, Rodrigo, Luis Sinisterra, Tyler Adams and Liam Cooper are all doubts.
The Latest: Smyth reacts
Smyth took to Twitter to react to the injury news from Thorp Arch. The Yorkshire Evening Post reporter simply said:
“Brutal. Absolutely brutal.”
The Verdict: Another 6-0?
The Whites are currently without a Premier League win since August and appear to be in free-fall under Marsch, so this injury update is brutal as Smyth states.
Marsch in or Marsch out?
Many were expecting the club to return from Merseyside empty-handed before the team news on Thursday, and things may well get ugly, should the six players mentioned miss out.
It will leave Marsch with limited options to choose from and fans fearing a repeat of the 6-0 defeat suffered under Marcelo Bielsa earlier this year.
