Marcelo Bielsa gives injury update ahead of Leeds against Manchester City

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa issued a latest injury update on Thursday by confirming there were no new problems in his squad ahead of the weekend.

The Whites are currently preparing for their trip to Premier League leaders Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.

Man City are the runaway leaders chasing down the league title, but people are overlooking the fact that 11th-placed Leeds have a great opportunity to finish in the top half on their return to the top flight.

It’s a big relief for the Yorkshire club that they’ve nearly got a full squad available to them.

Adam Forshaw is still working his way back to fitness from a long-term problem with minutes in the Under-23s, while Leeds loanee Jack Harrison is unavailable against parent club Man City.


“At this moment, no,” Bielsa responded (Leeds Live) when asked if there were any new injuries .

He added: “Yes, we are happy to be able to have no injuries at this moment in time. Given three-quarters of the season has gone past and we are able to count on a full squad is something that is very good.”

TBR’s View:

If you look at all the teams across the division, most have had their fair share of injury issues.

The strength of the squad at Elland Road is now beginning to tell with most options available, and there are some tough decisions for Bielsa to make.

For instance, who are the starting centre-back partnership out of Diego Llorente, Pascal Struijk, Liam Cooper and Robin Koch?

Bielsa will know his team have to be on their A-games to get a result against Man City, but can take heart from the fact they held them to a 1-1 draw earlier this season.
