Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to a pretty worrying update from Marcelo Bielsa, who has revealed that three key players could miss the trip to Middlesbrough.
Leeds have had woeful luck with injuries this season, and it looks like it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
As reported by Phil Hay of The Yorkshire Evening Post, Bielsa said Adam Forshaw, Mateusz Klich and Pablo Hernandez are all doubts for Saturday’s big match.
Doubts over Klich and Forshaw, who have knee injuries. Hernandez also a doubt with a groin problem. So Bielsa's line-up is still to be finally decided. But Kalvin Phillips will start. #lufc

Who are the best away fans in the Championship? Pl>ymaker FC’s Thogden gives his top 10 in the video below…
The Whites are still reeling from last weekend’s 3-1 defeat to Norwich, and a trip to the Riverside without three starters will be extremely difficult.
While Forshaw was perhaps in line to lose his place anyway after a poor display against Norwich, losing Klich and Hernandez would completely kill the Whites’ creativity from midfield.
Tony Pulis’ side have conceded just 22 goals in 29 league games this season, the least in the division, and fans are fearing the worst about taking on an extremely physical Boro side without their best midfielders.

Pthhhhh I've always thought having a midfield was overrated anyway

This will have taken some real thought from Bielsa. We’re playing against 9 defenders & a keeper, mostly giants too. I sense a more fluid, pacy midfield. Young & exciting line up.
Gotts, Nicell, Stevens, Hosannah, Oduor, Kun, Halme all worthy of the bench imo.

So the whole midfield is a doubt. We are seriously due a bit of good luck at some point.

Bielsa May be a technical genius but it’s all negated by his over the top training methods which devastate our thin squad!

I actually don’t believe Bielsa on injuries. Think he’s playing mind games.
