Regardless of dropping the opening recreation 2-Zero in opposition to Cardiff Metropolis for the reason that restart, Leeds United have discovered their momentum and are driving excessive on confidence.
The Whites have received three Championship video games in a row and are on the verge of securing promotion to the Premier League.
It’s been 16 years since they dropped out of top-tier of English soccer, and now they solely 4 factors from their remaining three video games to safe computerized promotion.
Forward of the mid-week conflict in opposition to Yorkshire rivals Barnsley, Marcelo Bielsa has delivered a bit of unhealthy information that has dampened the spirit of the Whites followers.
The Argentine has confirmed right this moment that midfielder Kalvin Phillips shall be out of the conflict with a knee harm. Moreover, he’s out for the following three video games. Meaning he received’t play an element anymore this season if Leeds safe direct promotion.
So, how Leeds are going to fill the void left by the influential midfielder? In keeping with Phil Hay, centre-back Ben White shall be requested to play in that place.

Its not Berardi at CB that is the issue. Its Ben White in midfield for me, we simply lose a lot when he performs there and we’re losing him by not enjoying him in his vest place

To be honest Phillips hasnt been at his finest for the reason that restart and White performed there within the 2 video games previous to the stoppage. With 5 subs if it isn’t working Bielsa will change it rapidly. As for Casilla I believe Bielsa is being diplomatic and anticipate to see him on the bench

This, utilizing White as cowl as an alternative of giving a pure midfielder a shot, will I by no means perceive. Berardi is such a fantastic individual I want him all the most effective, however I shall be holding my breath and 🤞☺️ Possibly it is the gods that felt we’re lacking some pressure in our Leeds-life 😅

It’ll be fantastic.
Berardi scores winner to ship us up in last 10 minutes. Bamford runs over to hug him in celebration however he finally ends up getting chinned. Alioski is within the background operating round with Bielsa’s bucket on his head. Crowdies come alive and invade pitch. The top.

Look Bielsa has bought us this far with the gamers we have now and if meaning having Kp out for the final three video games then so be it I belief in Bielsa to get the job carried out and whoever he chooses to place in then that’s fantastic with me

Don’t get why individuals are getting so involved over this. Disgrace for Phillips however White into CDM and Berra in shouldn’t break our stride by any means.

Ben has to begin on the again his partnership with Coops is essential 🔐 we have to maintain issues as tight as attainable thus permitting the remainder of the blokes to play their recreation! So far I’ve seen nothing to counsel Ben is a CM participant IMO

White appears so snug in midfield when he is CB, I believe he simply wants time to get used to that function – typically appears like muscle reminiscence kicks in and takes him to CB.
In Ben White we belief ❤️

Cannot say that is excellent news within the slightest however I’m warming to the thought of Berardi being on the pitch if we get the ultimate whistle we would like.
