Leeds: Lewis Bate back in training following injury

Leeds: Lewis Bate back in training following injury -Leeds United News

Leeds United midfielder Lewis Bate has been spotted back in first-team training ahead of Monday’s trip to Crystal Palace.

The Lowdown: Injury setback

Bate was involved in the first seven Premier League matchday squads in 2022, however, he has been included in just one of six squads under new boss Jesse Marsch.

The 19-year-old, who joined from Chelsea over the summer, was hit with an injury for the U23s last month and then suffered a setback after withdrawing from England’s U20 squad during the latest international break.

It looks as if he is now back up to speed, though, which could put him in contention for the trip to Selhurst Park.

The Latest: Bate’s post

As first reported by MOT Leeds News, Bate took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to share two images from training.

He captioned the post ‘focused’, with Kalvin Phillips and Pascal Struijk also visible, so it looks as if the midfielder is back in and around Marsch’s first-team sessions.

The Verdict: Good dilemma to have

Marsch has had to deal with a number of injury issues since replacing Marcelo Bielsa, but it looks as if he could have a near fully fit squad over the coming days.

The American confirmed last week that Junior Firpo was set to return to training, while Jamie Shackleton was also close to making a comeback prior to the 3-0 win over Watford.

As a result, the Leeds boss may now have some positive selection headaches for a change, as he looks to guide the club to safety with another positive result against Patrick Vieira’s side.
