Yet another Leeds star confirms injury after West Ham

Yet another Leeds star confirms injury after West Ham

 

Yet another member of Leeds United’s ranks has confirmed that he has picked up a fitness problem, on the back of the club’s meeting with West Ham.

Irons too strong

The Whites, of course, were back in action on Sunday evening.

After getting their Premier League campaign back on track courtesy of a 3-1 downing of Burnley, Marcelo Bielsa’s men turned their attentions towards matters on the cup front, in an FA Cup 3rd round showdown with West Ham United.

When all was said and done at the London Stadium, however, Leeds were simply undone by a superior Hammers outfit.

Goals from Manuel Lanzini (in controversial circumstances) and Jarrod Bowen ultimately assured that it was David Moyes’ men who marched on, to book their spot in the 4th round of the FA Cup.

Greenwood concern

For Leeds, on the other hand, it is now back to the drawing board.

Amid a difficult Premier League campaign to date, a deep cup run would no doubt have been warmly welcomed by the club’s fanbase, as Bielsa’s troops continue their efforts to reestablish themselves amongst the elite of English football.

In defence of the Peacocks, on Sunday, they were unable to call on a whole host of key performers.

The likes of Kalvin Phillips, Tyler Roberts, Rodrigo, Joe Gelhardt and Patrick Bamford all missed out against West Ham, owing to respective fitness issues.

And now, remarkably, yet another member of the Yorkshire outfit’s setup has revealed an injury concern of his own.

Taking to social media to celebrate his first senior start in Leeds’ colours, highly-regarded attacker Sam Greenwood confirmed that he too is facing a spell on the sidelines, after picking up an unspecified injury at the London Stadium:
