Footage posted on United's official social media pages shows England international striker Patrick Bamford and German international defender Robin Koch combining in a training drill with the ball.

Whites no 9 Bamford has not featured since injuring his ankle in the 1-1 draw at Newcastle United on Friday, September 17 whilst Koch has not been seen since the 5-1 defeat at Manchester United over the opening weekend of the season.

The 25-year-old then travelled to the USA to undergo minor surgery to repair small damage to his pubis area.

Forth-bottom Leeds were without seven players for Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Tottenham, Bamford and Koch joined on the sidelines by Raphinha (illness), Rodrigo (minor foot issue), Luke Ayling (knee), Jamie Shackleton (leg) and Crysencio Summerville (unknown).

A message from the Editor:

Leeds has a fantastic story to tell - and the Yorkshire Evening Post has been rooted firmly at the heart of telling the stories of our city since 1890.
