Marcelo Bielsa provides updates on Kalvin Phillips, Rodrigo & more ahead of Leeds vs Southampton

Leeds vs Southampton

This game week’s Premier League action will draw to a close on Tuesday evening.

The final match of the week will see Leeds and Southampton face off at 6 PM UK time.

Both sides will head into the tie with little to play for.

The duo are languishing in midtable, but are unlikely to be sucked into a relegation scrap, with little chance of securing a European berth either.

Leeds are more in-form than the Saints right now, but the in-form Takumi Minamino and Danny Ings will likely get some joy against the Whites’ shaky backline.

Bielsa provides Leeds injury update

Ahead of the tie, Marcelo Bielsa would hold his pre-match press conference on Monday.

During the presser, the Argentine would provide a team news update on his squad.

Firstly, Bielsa confirmed that Kalvin Phillips, who has missed the Peacock’s last two league ties with a calf injury, remains unavailable:

“Kalvin Phillips is not available for tomorrow’s game.”

Elsewhere, Bielsa provided updates on Rodrigo, Diego Llorente and Gaetano Berardi:

“Rodrigo Moreno is also out, but Diego Llorente is back. Gaetano Berardi is evolving, the same as Ian Poveda.”

Bielsa was also drawn on Southampton’s recent poor run of form:

“Every team has a bunch of negative results. 

“The only teams that don’t have this problem are the ones who occupy the first few positions in the table.  

“The teams in the middle of the table who have not as big squads, when they’re missing four of five players like everyone else, they have to opt for youngsters to make subs during games.  

“This presents a different reality.”
