Marcelo Bielsa is enjoying a brief break from Premier League action after breaking the capital curse at Fulham.

The Whites toppled the Cottagers 2-1 in London last Friday and don't return to action until April 3 - when they host Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield United at Elland Road.

Leeds have a host on players on international duty in the coming days.

Kalvin Phillips, Tyler Roberts, Helder Costa, Mateusz Klich, Stuart Dallas, Diego Llorente and Gjanni Alioski have all departed Thorp Arch for senior action with their countries.

United number one Illan Meslier has also linked up with France's Under-21s squad this week.

For the rest of Bielsa's men, though, the hard work will continue behind closed doors along with some much-needed respite for those nursing issues.

Here, we take a look at the full list of players battling problems...

Leeds United injury concerns

Rodrigo - muscle

Pablo Hernandez - muscle

Liam Cooper - illness

Adam Forshaw - hip

Mateusz Klich - Covid-19

The latest addition to the unfortunate injury list is Leeds midfielder Mateusz Klich.

The 30-year-old has tested positive for Covid-19 while away with the Poland national team and will now self-isolate in line with the current rules.

Club captain Liam Cooper has been missing due to what United describe as illness of late, having been absent for matches against Chelsea and Fulham.

Rodrigo recently returned from a groin issue and was deemed touch and go for the trip to Craven Cottage last week.

The Spaniard missed out in the capital along with countryman Pablo Hernandez who both may benefit from the extended break to provide a boost against Sheffield United next time out.

Adam Forshaw - who was spotted by eagle-eyed fans returning to training last week - is still working his way back from a long-term complex hip problem.
