Leeds United fans have been reacting on Twitter in the last 24 hours after Phil Hay confirmed that Raphinha could miss out on the Liverpool fixture.
Hay was quoting from Marcelo Bielsa’s press conference ahead of the visit of the Reds. The respected Leeds reported said that Raphinha, along with Spanish forward Rodrigo, could both miss the game.
Of course, Raphinha’s loss would hit Leeds harder. Rodrigo has missed a number of games anyway this season while Raphinha, having only signed in the summer, is regarded as a key player for the Whites.
Naturally, Leeds fans have been having their say on Raphinha’s injury on Twitter and it seems it’s not gone down too well.
Clearly, losing a big player for such a big and key fixture is massive, and Leeds supporters are desperate to see the Brazilian make a speedy recovery and potentially even play a part in the fixture.
Here, then, is a look at what some Leeds fans had to say in response to Raphinha potentially missing the Liverpool game.
Not great news, but Jack will be available and Helder played bloody well last Saturday, so things could be worse.

There’s a doubt………But there’s hope. Playing Monday night is a positive for us then. Those 2 extra days may be blessing in disguise 🙏

Fearing a bit of a Liverpool backlash after their CL KO. Hope I’m wrong, obviously

Let’s rest Raph anyway, zero sense in him being in the squad. Be good to see Jack back and Costa, playing together and Roberts did ok as CAM.
