The last month or so has been a bit of a struggle for Leeds United. The club have had to get by without the likes of Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe, who were so influential at the start of the season, and it looks like with the pair returning for Blackburn next Saturday, according to Kalvin Phillips via The Yorkshire Evening Post, the fans will be expecting a big result.
Pablo Hernandez, Kemar Roofe and Gaetano Berardi all in fine fettle, according to Kalvin Phillips. The cavalry are coming but Phillips feels the past month has shown good strength in depth at Leeds United:https://t.co/pX4hhqqbco

Leeds fans have been loving life under Marcelo Bielsa, however, their squad is fairly thin as the Argentine decided to cut down on their squad over the summer months. Kalvin Phillips has been one of the standout performers in a strong Leeds side and now his comments have led to a lot of supporters getting even more excited about the return of club football after the international break.
Bielsa may not throw both of his returning stars straight into the team at Ewood Park next weekend but he will most likely be including both in his matchday squad for the trip to Blackburn. The creativity of Hernandez has been sorely missed and whilst Tyler Roberts has stepped in to deputise for Roofe, the frontman’s goals have been sorely missed, with plenty of Leeds fans hoping that Blackburn comes prepared as they expect to walk away with all three points.
