Leeds United will want to follow up their victory against Burnley with another win as they face West Bromwich Albion tonight and ahead of the big game, Marcelo Bielsa has been discussing in-form striker Patrick Bamford.
Bielsa provides Bamford injury update
Speaking following the win over Burnley, Marcelo Bielsa was asked about Bamford after he looked to be struggling with a leg injury near the end of the encounter. He said: “With respect to Bamford, I don’t know yet”
This would be a big blow for Leeds
Bamford has been in great form for Leeds so far in the Premier League. The player has proved many doubters wrong as he has scored ten goals in 15 appearances (WhoScored). The Englishman has also managed 3.6 shots per game.
Rob Lee praised the forward for his season so far as he said: “Patrick Bamford has done brilliant, I think he’s done a fantastic job. He’s their focal point, he plays every game.”
The goals he has in England’s top flight puts him in the top six goal scorers in the division and without them, the Yorkshire-based club would only have scored 15 times this season (SofaScore). Therefore, if he is unavailable for tonight’ game, it would be a massive blow for Leeds and a potentially major boost for West Brom.
