Leeds United will play their first game after the international break against Liverpool this Sunday, and Marcelo Bielsa has given an update on who will and who won’t be available for the game.

Firstly, deadline day signing Dan James will be available to play and could potentially have a larger role than first anticipated as Bielsa still has no confirmation of whether Raphinha will be eligible to play.

Mateusz Klich and Junior Firpo are available for selection again after missing the 1-1 draw with Burnley due to positive Covid-19 tests. Klich even had to miss Poland’s World Cup qualifying games, including the 1-1 draw with England. Stuart Dallas will also be available despite leaving the Northern Island squad early for ‘personal reasons’.

Finally, Robin Koch is still out following the pelvic injury he obtained prior to Leeds’ 2-2 draw with Everton. Koch has only appeared in the opening day massacre at Old Trafford this season.
