Leeds: Illan Meslier still yet to return to training

Leeds: Illan Meslier still yet to return to training -Leeds United News

Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier is yet to make a return to training ahead of the clash with Southampton on Saturday, The Yorkshire Evening Post report.

The Lowdown: Molineux injury

The Whites sealed back-to-back wins before the international break against Norwich and Wolves, with the victory at Molineux coming at a cost.

Jesse Marsch lost Patrick Bamford, Diego Llorente, Mateusz Klich and Meslier through injury.

Bamford has now been ruled out for six weeks with another foot problem, whereas Meslier, labelled as ‘excellent’ by Sky Sports pundit Micah Richards, suffered bruising after a collision with Raul Jimenez.

The Latest: Update

The Yorkshire Evening Post shared injury news on a number of Whites players on Tuesday afternoon.

When it came to Meslier, they claimed that the goalkeeper hasn’t been in training since his impact injury but is expected to be available against the Saints.

The Verdict: Marsch worried?

Although Meslier is expected to make a return, it is a worry knowing he hasn’t trained during the international break.

The Frenchman has started every league game so far and has made more saves than any other ‘keeper in the division, making him a crucial member of Marsch’s squad.

The Leeds boss was forced into handing Kristoffer Klaesson his Premier League debut for the final 35 minutes against Wolves, and you’d expect the American would rather be able to call upon Meslier, but how much faith can he have in a player who hasn’t trained for two weeks?
