West Bromwich Albion will be desperate to bounce straight back after their disappointing loss at the hands of Sheffield United at the weekend, with their promotion hopes taking a hit.
The Baggies were looking impressive prior to Sheffield United rocking up at the Hawthorns, so they’ll feel confident that they can return to winning ways against Leeds United on Friday night.
However, it appears as if the Midlands club could be without one of their key players for a period of time, as according to Birmingham Live, Ahmed Hegazy suffered an injury at the weekend and some have speculated at an Achilles problem, but the main consensus appears to be a more straight-forward ankle tweak.
Indeed, the Egyptian has been one of the standout performers for the Baggies in recent weeks, but he was in some discomfort as he was replaced by Tosin Adarabioyo at the heart of the defence last time out.
And, there have been contrasting opinions on the nature of his injury, with some suggesting it could be an Achilles problem, while the majority think it could be an ankle tweak.
Indeed, it would come as a huge blow if the defender has suffered an Achilles related injury as he could be out for an extended period of time, which would be a disaster as they can’t risk losing him in the middle of a promotion race.
Therefore, fans will be praying that they receive positive news in the near future.
