Phil Hay’s injury update should have Leeds fans worried for this weekend

Phil Hay’s injury update should have Leeds fans worried for this weekend

Following their draw with Middlesbrough, Leeds will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend against Millwall. 

The Yorkshire club remain unbeaten so far in the league and have played some incredibly entertaining football and under Bielsa, they’ve managed to smother their opponents with their high-pressing, high energy style of play.

This weekend, however, the club go into a tough away game and according to the Yorkshire Evening Post journalist, Phil Hay, they will be without Gaetano Berardi, Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez.

The Breakdown

All three players have been essential to Leeds’ push to the top of the table. Under Bielsa, Roofe seems like a completely different player and not only does he look sharper in front of goal but also his ability to bring other players into the game has made him one of the most deadly strikers in the league.

While everyone knows just how good Pablo Hernandez is, the Spaniard’s ability has made Bielsa’s life much easier. His intelligence and quality with the ball has suited Bielsa’s system perfectly and without him and Roofe up front, Leeds are going to be lacking two of their best players.

Berardi injured his knee towards the end of their goalless draw against Middlesbrough and apparently needs more time to come back. The defender has played incredibly well in tandem with Liam Cooper at the back so far this year. However, with Pontus Jansson waiting in the wings, Leeds have an adequate replacement ready to play.

Leeds fans, how are you feeling about the injuries?
