Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams will miss their trip to Arsenal this weekend after surgery on a hamstring injury.
Reports throughout the international break suggested that Tyler Adams was a serious doubt to face Arsenal with Leeds United this weekend, and his absence has now been confirmed.
The BBC report that Adams faces an extended period on the sidelines after surgery on a hamstring injury, picking up the problem in training after 26 appearances this season.
The Athletic reported some good news for Leeds fans earlier this week, revealing that assessments on injuries suffered by Wilfried Gnonto and Maximilian Wober suggest they’ve both avoided long-term spells on the sidelines.
But the pair also remain doubtful to feature against Arsenal on Saturday.
Left-winger Gnonto lasted just 22 minutes for Italy against Malta on Sunday, forced off after picking up an ankle injury.
Centre-back Wober also suffered an injury over the international break, limping off with a thigh problem in the 34th minute of Austria’s win over Azerbaijan.
Longer-term absentees Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw also won’t be available against Arsenal, having missed much of the season already.
The potential losses of Gnonto and Wober and the confirmed loss of Adams is more significant for Leeds.
Gnonto and Wober both started Leeds’ last game against Wolves, and Adams had started every Leeds game of 2023 before his injury.
If Gnonto and Wober are out, Leeds’ starting lineup will probably be something like the following:
Meslier, Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Firpo, Roca, McKennie, Aaronson, Harrison, Sinisterra, Bamford
