Pontus Jansson set to miss Swansea trip but Kemar Roofe available

Leeds United will travel to Swansea City on Tuesday as they look to make it five wins from five in all competitions, however, they will be without a key man.

According to Leeds Live, Marcelo Bielsa has revealed that Pontus Jansson will not be making the trip to Wales.

The manager had stated that the Sweden international had felt something in his back on Sunday which will not allow him to make an appearance against the Swans.

However, he could make a return to the Whites on Saturday, as the Championship campaign gets into full swing.

One man that will give Bielsa an added boost for the tie against last year’s Premier League outfit is that Kemar Roofe is available for the clash.

The striker, who has been in fine form for the Elland Road outfit having netted three in their opening four fixtures, has been declared as fit for the trip to Wales with the 25-year-old having trained normally on Monday.

The Verdict:

Swansea could prove to be one of the more difficult fixtures this season for Bielsa’s side, although they will feel confident that they can get a result from the Liberty Stadium outfit.

Despite the Whites being able to seemingly cope without Jansson so far, he will be considered a miss with his experience and ability.

However, with Roofe available to play, Bielsa will feel confident that they can find the back of the net and record a positive result as they continue their charge for a Premier League place next season.
