Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which BBC reporter Adam Pope discussed Crystal Palace’s team news ahead of the Whites’ clash with the south London side next Monday.
According to Pope, Wilfried Zaha is the ‘latest big injury worry for Palace’ for Monday’s Premier League fixture against Leeds, with the journalist claiming that James McArthur, James McCarthy, Joel Ward, Jeffrey Schlupp and James Tomkins are also doubts for the match.
Pope continued by stating that Roy Hodgson could only name seven substitutes on his bench for the club’s recent 2-1 victory against Newcastle United and things do not look to have improved for the Eagles since.
In reaction to his tweet, fans of Leeds flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing delighted at Crystal Palace’s injury misfortunes.
Is the CPFC game must-win for Leeds?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to Adam Pope’s tweet regarding Crystal Palace’s injury crisis?
“Lovely stuff adam”
“That would be a godsend”
“Done his hamstring v Newcastle would be a major surprise if he started”
“Will they want a goal headstart?”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Leeds United fans are particularly delighted to hear that Zaha looks likely to be a doubt for their club’s fixture against Crystal Palace on Monday, with some claiming it would be a godsend, while others joked as to whether Palace would request a goal head-start due to their injury troubles.
Given Zaha has directly played a hand in 11 goals across 19 top-flight appearances this season (as per Transfermarkt), it is no wonder why Leeds fans feel their chances of winning would increase should the Ivorian miss out through injury.
