The latest on Leeds pair Rodrigo & Phillips ahead of West Ham

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa this afternoon provided a brief fitness update on his squad, ahead of the club’s upcoming meeting with West Ham United.

The Whites are set to return to action on Monday evening, in a Premier League showdown with David Moyes’ high-flyers at the London Stadium.

Leeds will of course head into proceedings wary of the threat posed by the Hammers, who have enjoyed a stellar campaign to date.

Despite a 2-1 defeat to rampant table-toppers Manchester City last time out, West Ham remain in the top-4, with a chance to close the gap to both Leicester and Manchester United in 4 days’ time.

Bielsa’s Leeds, on the other hand, have endured a rocky couple of weeks, which have seen them fall to defeat in 3 of the club’s last 4 league outings.

In turn, the Peacocks sit just inside the bottom-half of the English top-flight table, albeit a full 12 points clear of the relegation zone.

As such, the Elland Road outfit will no doubt be keen to return to winning ways at the London Stadium, to kick on towards a top-half finish.

And, as outlined above, ahead of their meeting with West Ham, on Thursday, Marcelo Bielsa has provided an insight into the current fitness levels of his side.

Speaking in a press conference, the Argentine was asked for the latest on the sidelined contingent of his squad, which includes the likes of key performers Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo.

Bielsa, however, did not specify which of his stars are closing on a return, instead revealing that ‘some’ of those on the treatment table are set to feature for the club’s U23s on Friday, whilst others will be assessed over the days ahead:

‘It depends how they evolve in the following days.’

‘We have managed the week in a combined manner between rest and training. The quality of the training improves when you have time to recover throughout the week.’

‘Some players who are coming back from injuries will be playing in the U23s game tomorrow.’
