MetiNews.Com - Leeds United have been handed two fresh injury concerns for Saturday's clash against Aston Villa at Elland Road
Breaking News ! Leeds United have been handed two fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday’s clash against Aston Villa with concerns over Jamie Shackleton and Mateusz Klich. Shackleton was forced to sit out of Tuesday night’s win 3-0 over Southampton at Elland Road with Marcelo Bielsa revealing afterwards the midfielder was showing signs of an injury ahead of the match. The 21-year-old had started the previous two Premier League fixtures for Leeds, including the defeat against Wolves at Molineux last Friday. To make matters worse, Mateusz Klich then limped off just before the hour mark against the Saints, with Ezgjan Alioski coming on to replace him.

Bielsa told LeedsLive: “After the game against Wolverhampton, Shackleton presented himself with some problems in his abductor that did not allow him to play today. “We don’t have information on Klich just yet.” Influential midfielder Kalvin Phillips remained sidelined for Leeds against Southampton with the calf injury he picked up against Crystal Palace at the start of February while Rodrigo missed the match with a groin problem that has kept the forward out all month.
