Jack Harrison injury could open door for Willy Gnonto's full Leeds United debut as Mateusz Klich adds injury to insult

Jack Harrison is a doubt for Leeds United's Premier League game at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday whilst Mateusz Klich has added injury to insult, and will be ruled out.

Harrison's injury could open the door for Willy Gnonto to follow up his performance from the bench against Bournemouth. The Italy international is yet to start for the club.

Klich, who was this week surprisingly left out of Poland's World Cup squad, suffered a knee injury in the League Cup defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Patrick Bamford will also miss the final match before the Premier League goes on hold, in Leeds's case until December 28.


"Patrick is out for this match, he still hasn't recovered," said manager Jack Harrison, who expects to have Joe Gelhardt fit.

"Klichy took a knee to knee knock against Wolves, he'll be out. Jack Harrison is a little questionable with a muscle strain but we're hopeful in the next 24 hours he can recover and be available."

Archie Gray has seen a broken toe turn into an ankle injury.

"Archie Gray has turned into a little bit of an ankle injury so we're in a situation with his age and him still growing we have to shut him down for six to eight weeks," said Marsch. "It's a little defect in his ankle that got highlighted when his toe got broken.

"I speak to Archie and he's obviously down about it but given his age and physical maturity we think this is the best thing for him.

"Adam Forshaw has been training hard and if the Tottenham match were maybe three days later we would consider him eligible but it at least means he should be ready when we get back after the World Cup to get into training and get up to 100 per cent.

"Stuart (Dallas) we'll see that out on the pitch but maybe December/early January we'll get him out on the pitch."
