Journalist Phil Hay has confirmed that Leeds United have no new injury concerns but Patrick Bamford, Luke Ayling and Robin Koch are still missing.
The Lowdown: Leeds host Leicester in huge game
The Whites picked up a much-needed 2-1 win away to Norwich City last weekend, in what was just their second Premier League victory of the season.
Leeds will be aiming to take that momentum with them into Sunday’s visit of Leicester City, with the Foxes losing at Arsenal last Saturday and the only drawing at home to Spartak Moscow in the Europa League.
Marcelo Bielsa has had his fair share of injury problems to contend with this season and he has now provided a fresh update on the situation.
The Latest: Hay gives injury update
Taking to Twitter on Friday morning from Bielsa’s pre-match press conference, Hay confirmed that Bamford, Ayling and Koch are all out of Sunday’s match, but everyone else should be available for selection:
“Bamford, Ayling and Koch are all still unavailable for Sunday. Sounds like everyone else is ready.”
The Verdict: Could be worse
It is vital that Leeds get their key injured trio back as soon as possible, but at least Bielsa will be able to field the same team as the Norwich game, should he decide to.
That will allow the Whites to retain an element of rhythm, hopefully leading to a positive result at Elland Road in a campaign where they have rarely gone from one match to another without another injury popping up.
