3 in, 3 out: The latest Leeds team news ahead of Chelsea clash

3 in, 3 out: The latest Leeds team news ahead of Chelsea clash

 

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has provided a fitness update on his squad, ahead of the club’s upcoming meeting with Chelsea.

Elland Road clash

The Whites are set to return to action on Saturday afternoon, in a Premier League showdown with Thomas Tuchel’s in-form Chelsea.

Leeds will head into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, having fallen to defeat in 4 of their last 5 in the English top-flight.

The latest of these came on Monday night, when an action-packed affair eventually saw Bielsa and co. put to the sword by 2 goals to nil, at West Ham.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will of course enter Saturday’s clash at Elland Road brimming with confidence.

This comes with the Blues having enjoyed a superb start to life under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel, and are now unbeaten in their last 12 across all competitions.

Leeds latest

As such, Marcelo Bielsa will no doubt be keen to have as many of his key performers fit and available as possible, ahead of what is no doubt set to prove a tough test in 48 hours’ time.

And, as outlined above, on Thursday, the Leeds boss has moved to provide a fitness update on his squad.

Speaking in a pre-match press conference, Bielsa first confirmed that both Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo came through unscathed, after returning from respective spells on the sidelines against West Ham:

‘They’re both good’, explained the Argentine.

Bielsa then went on to reveal further positive news on all of Jamie Shackleton, Robin Koch and Gaetano Berardi:

‘Jamie Shackleton is available now, Robin Koch also, Gaetano Berardi also.’

As one Whites trio get set to return, however, another remain on the treatment table:

‘The players not available are Pablo Hernandez, Adam Forshaw and Pascal Struijk.’
