Leeds United can’t seem to keep their players fit. Marcelo Bielsa must be working the team hard as they’ve suffered a number of muscular injuries already this season and we’re only in October. Jack Harrison is the latest member of the squad to pick up an injury and Bielsa confirmed yesterday he would be missing the Blackburn game.
Bielsa says Harrison is out of Blackburn. He has a muscular injury and will be back next week. Ayling (banned) and Douglas (hamstring) also missing. #lufc

Jack Harrison took a while to get going in his Leeds United career but then when he came good he did it with a bang. The English winger signed on-loan from Manchester City in the summer and didn’t do much for the side at all until he exploded onto the scenes with a superbly taken late equaliser at The Den to rescue a 1-1 draw against Millwall back in September.
Harrison is sure to be missed by the fans but whilst the club have got Pablo Hernandez, Kemar Roofe and Gaetano Berardi all returning, things could be worse. It’s beginning to look like Bielsa will never have a fully fit squad fee of injuries but so far he’s doing well working with what he’s got. It also helps that he’s not adverse to taking players from the academy and giving them chances, so The Whites will definitely be able to cope.

That’s Pablo starting then.

The fans will be able to cope without Harrison, but not having him available is far from ideal.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
