Leeds United hope Wilfried Gnonto and Maximilian Wober have avoided long-term absences, but they remain doubts to face Arsenal.
The Athletic report that assessments on injuries suffered by Wilfried Gnonto and Maximilian Wober suggest they’ve both avoided long-term spells on the sidelines, and they should be fit for most of the Premier League run-in.
The pair remain doubtful to feature against Arsenal on Saturday, but clearly, there’s at least a chance now.
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.
In other Leeds injury news, Tyler Adams had to pull out of the United States squad with a hamstring injury, with the suggestion that he won’t be fit to face Arsenal.
Longer-term absentees Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw also won’t be back, but they’ve hardly played any part in this season between them, so that’s no surprise.
The potential losses of Gnonto, Wober, and Adams would be 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 all three are out, Leeds’ starting lineup will probably be something like the following:
Meslier, Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Firpo, Roca, McKennie, Aaronson, Harrison, Sinisterra, Bamford
