The major boost landed in yesterday’s practice video with the inclusion of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, players Marcelo Bielsa hadn’t wanted to shed much light.
Liam Cooper, who was not in the aforementioned training video, and Leif Davis are also expected to be added to the group that traveled to East Sussex.
Cody Drameh, Jack Jenkins and Niall Huggins would be the obvious names to drop from the side facing Tottenham Hotspur.
Whether Raphinha, Phillips and Cooper are sharp enough to start the game in Bielsa’s eyes remains to be seen, but the squad, at the very least, will be stronger.
Full squad of Leeds United: Illan Meslier, Luke Ayling, Robin Koch, Liam Cooper, Ian Poveda, Patrick Bamford, Ezgjan Alioski, Tyler Roberts, Kiko Casilla, Diego Llorente, Stuart Dallas, Raphinha, Pablo Hernandez, Rodrigo, Pascal Struijk, Jack Harrison, Kalvin Phillips, Leif Davis, Gaetano Berardi, Mateusz Klich, Jamie Shackleton.
