Speaking in his press conference today (via @PhilHay_), Marcelo Bielsa gave fans an update on a number of players including Mateusz Klich, Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo. There wasn’t much positivity to come out of it, with the best news perhaps being that Klich is ‘doing okay so has a chance’ and going on to state that the calf injury that Phillips is going through could get worse if they mismanage it, so they are being incredibly cautious with it.
With Leeds looking as though they are set to finish comfortably mid-table this season, the game doesn’t really have a lot riding on it from their perspective, but that still didn’t stop a number of Leeds fans from expressing their concern, with Phillips’ injury causing the most grief amongst them:
“Kalvin Phillips’ absence makes me feel uneasy”
Would you like to see Kalvin Phillips named Leeds captain in the future?
Better to be safe than sorry by the sounds of it.
