The Daily Mirror’s David Anderson has reported that the injury crisis for Leeds United is ‘showing signs of easing’.
The Whites have 11 players currently out through injury with Diego Llorente also unavailable for their clash with West Ham due to a suspension
They could receive a huge boost for this weekend’s Premier League clash at the London Stadium as Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo ‘should’ be fit enough to return.
Speaking on his personal Twitter account, Anderson said: “Leeds’ injury crisis is showing signs of easing and Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo should be fit for Sunday’s return trip to West Ham.”
The Whites just can’t catch a break at the moment when it comes to the fitness of their players, it has been a season long issue ever-present with Leeds’ Premier League position.
The latest injury to Sam Greenwood took Marcelo Bielsa’s attacking options to new lows with several unorthodox strikers being rumoured to play upfront in the next match.
The news of two senior strikers edging closer to return will be music to the Whites ears, let’s just hope they can stay fit
Bamford’s fitness status has been reminiscent of a yoyo in recent weeks, constantly up and down.
Bielsa needs to look after his players and give them time to make a full recovery before rushing them back into action.
