Reliable journalist shares if Leeds squad struck by COVID-19 as Premier League crisis growing

  • by

Leeds United are yet to report any positive COVID-19 cases despite the Premier League crisis growing this week.

The Whites are going through an injury crisis of their own, with less than 11 senior players to choose from for Marcelo Bielsa.

Graham Smyth has shared the latest state of play at Thorp Arch, with COVID-19 yet to add to our problems.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, the Yorkshire Evening Post journalist has shared the latest from West Yorkshire.

“Not that we know of Joel,” he wrote.

“Leeds have generally stuck to a policy of saying players are unavailable or ill and if the player wants to they can put something out on social media. All the current unavailability is linked to injury, with one suspension.”

COVID free?

So, it looks as though despite the crisis going through the squad with injuries, it looks as though the virus is playing no part.

It has been shared this week that Leeds are well ahead of others in the Premier League with double-jabbed players and are now kicking on with the booster jabs.

Despite other clubs having games called off because of positive cases, they most likely still have more senior players available than Leeds at this moment in time.

The injury situation is simply unexplainable, and one or two positive cases would leave the Whites in a position where they couldn’t play any games.

Fans around Elland Road would likely welcome some postponements or a small break, as it would give us time to get back some of our biggest names.

No one would ever wish for COVID-19 positive cases, though, and as things stand, the Whites are clean and ready to play.
