HEALTHY AGAIN - Rodrigo and Pablo Hernandez are both healthy according to Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa

Both Rodrigo and Pablo Hernandez have recovered from their respective recent injuries, although Bielsa has cautioned that they have not reached their 'ideal' fitness levels.

He's still waiting to hear if Klich, who tested positive during the international break while away on Poland duty, will be an option to face the Blades. Liam Cooper has recovered from the illness that kept him out of Scotland action, however, and returned to training.

"The group is healthy and both [Rodrigo and Hernandez] are healthy too but there is always a difference between the ideal fitness and the time that you have," he said.

"The situation with Klich is in the process of being solved. There is a protocol that needs to be completed and we'll see what the consequences are. The protocol has not been finalised so we don't know what the results will be."

Although Bielsa has no fresh injury issues in the group that stayed at Thorp Arch during the break, he's not yet welcomed back his internationals and can't say for certain if they have picked up any problems.

"The rest of the players haven't arrived back from international duty and it's not convenient to anticipate whether they are okay or not fitness wise without having evaluated them," he said.
