‘If you’re a Leeds fan, you’re worrying’ – Player news emerges from Elland Road: The verdict



Pontus Jansson is facing a race against time to be fit for Leeds United’s clash with Bristol City on Saturday.

Leeds are sweating on Jansson’s fitness, with the defender forced out of Sweden’s squad this week with a problem he picked up in the 4-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Phil Hay from the Yorkshire Evening Post has stated that the 27-year-old’s setback doesn’t appear to be serious, but he might not make Saturday’s clash with Bristol City.

Just how much of a blow would Jansson’s absence against Bristol City be?

We discuss…

George Harbey  

It could be a huge blow for Leeds.

With Luke Ayling out with injury, the thing Leeds need the least is another defender out on the sidelines, particularly as Jansson is such an important player for Bielsa.

Why are they so unlucky with injuries? It’s ridiculous.

Jacob Potter

It’s a huge blow.

Jansson’s influence on this Leeds team is massive, and with a lack of experienced replacements, they could struggle against the Robins.

Marcelo Bielsa will be hoping to have the Swedish international back as soon as possible to help aid their promotion bid this season.

Louie Chandler  

A potentially massive blow.

After their thrashing at the hands of West Brom last time out there is a good chance that the Robins will smell blood and really go at the Whites.

If Bielsa is missing his best defender it could prove to be a difficult afternoon for the Whites.

Alfie Burns  

If you’re a Leeds fan, you’re worrying.

Bielsa’s injuries are stacking up against him, and although Jansson’s injury isn’t serious, he will be missed against Bristol City.

Lee Johnson’s side are good going forwards and have the potential to really hurt Leeds.
