After surgery on his hamstring injury, Kalvin Phillips is now another confirmed absentee for Leeds United against Arsenal this weekend.
The Athletic report that Kalvin Phillips has undergone surgery to repair his hamstring injury, and he’s now expected to be out for at least two months. He’ll certainly miss Saturday’s visit from Arsenal.
Just last week, The Telegraph reported that Patrick Bamford was facing at least two weeks out after an injury which became apparent after he scored his equaliser at the end of the Brentford game. Again, that would rule him out for Arsenal.
Liam Cooper has also suffered a hamstring injury, and will miss the match as well.
Pascal Struijk was meant to return to action against Chelsea at the weekend, but he injured his foot in training, so he’s another doubt.
On the positive side for Leeds fans, Robin Koch could return in time.
Koch is now over his pelvic injury, according to Leeds themselves, and he resumed training at the weekend after overcoming an illness.
The Arsenal win over Leeds at the Emirates in October involved appearances for Phillips, Struijk, and Cooper, so it can surely only be good news that Marcelo Bielsa might be forced into fielding an even weaker side this time.
