Marcelo Bielsa provides update on Leeds United trio ahead of Chelsea clash

Leeds United rescue last-minute draw

Despite being by far the better side, it took until the 95th minute for Leeds United to get anything out of their clash with Brentford last weekend.

Patrick Bamford, returning after a long spell out, came off the bench to bundle in a late equaliser from a corner to send the Leeds faithful into jubliation.

However, it came at a cost. The Englishman, who finished as Leeds’ top scorer last season, is expected to miss much of the festive period through a further injury that he picked up whilst celebrating the equaliser.

He is not the only one, either.

Bielsa gives team news update ahead of Chelsea clash

Ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge to take on an injury depleted Chelsea, Bielsa revealed the extent of the injury problems to his own side.

And, if you are of a Leeds United persuasion, you may wish to look away.

Bielsa refused to be drawn on a possible timeframe for the injuries to Bamford, Phillips and Liam Cooper, instead simply claiming:

“The time that they will be out for is subject to their evolution”

With rumours flying that Phillips could be out for as long as two months, to hear Bielsa refuse to commit as to whether he could return in December is a hefty blow to an already struggling Leeds side.

Can they still cause an upset at Stamford Bridge?
