Leeds remain without winger Stuart Dallas, midfielder Adam Forshaw and youngster Archie Gray at this moment in time as the quartet continue to fight back from their respective injuries.

Prior to the Liverpool game, Marsch described Leo Hjelde as a doubt following his appendectomy and he ended up missing out of the squad. Liam Cooper, Tyler Adams and Rodrigo were also mentioned as potential absentees but all started against the Reds.

The boss issued an update on Luis Sinisterra’s situation earlier this week to the Yorkshire Evening Post: “We hope that he will be in training this week. We hope that it’s not too bad. It’s a little sprain in his foot. He was still pretty sore yesterday (Friday) but the swelling has gone down each day and hopefully we can get him on the pitch this week.”

Bournemouth are 14th in the league table and are a point above Leeds. Thave attacking midfielder David Brooks, who scored for former club Sheffield United at Elland Road back in 2017, and defender Lloyd Kelly sidelined.

The Cherries’ manager Gary O’Neil told their official club website last week that goalkeeper Neto will be unavailable ‘long-term’ after he picked up an injury against West Ham last month, with Mark Travers taking his place. Striker Dom Solanke was a doubt last time out against Tottenham Hotspur and started before being substituted in the second-half.
