The latest on Raphinha & Kalvin Phillips ahead of Leeds vs Tottenham
Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has provided a fitness update on the club’s squad, ahead of their upcoming meeting with Tottenham.
The Whites are set to return to action on Saturday afternoon.
Bielsa and co. will welcome Spurs to Elland Road, for a highly anticipated Premier League clash.
The matchup is actually of little importance to Leeds, who currently sit in mid-table, amid a solid debut campaign back in the top-flight.
For visitors Tottenham, though, the club’s season could rest on the eventual outcome in west Yorkshire.
This comes with the Lilywhites still in the thick of the Premier League’s battle for European football, sitting 6th, five points adrift of London rivals Chelsea in 4th.
In turn, Leeds will no doubt expect to face a fully motivated Spurs outfit with their sights fully set on securing three points.
And, ahead of what will therefore likely prove a testing 90 minutes, on Thursday, Marcelo Bielsa has provided a fitness update on his squad.
The key takeaway came in the form of the latest on Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, both of whom missed the Peacocks’ defeat to Brighton last time out.
As confirmed by Bielsa, though, the key duo are again in doubt to feature this weekend, with late fitness tests in store for both:
‘Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha are being evaluated on a daily basis to see whether they can be available, we have to wait until Saturday.’
‘Their presence is subject to an evaluation that is carried out on a daily basis.’
The Leeds boss also confirmed that Helder Costa has been ruled out for the remainder of the season:
‘Helder Costa won’t be able to compete again this season.’
