Leeds United v Sunderland injury news with 9 now out and star trio among new doubts totalling 13

Leeds United will look to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat at Coventry City in Tuesday night’s hosting of Sunderland – for which more than a full team of players are now either ruled out or doubtful.

Whites boss Daniel Farke and Sunderland head coach Mike Dodds both held their pre-match press conferences on Monday afternoon ahead of Tuesday night’s clash at Elland Road. Several players across both sides were already known to be out or doubtful but new names have now been added to the mix. Here, we run through the injuries, absentees or doubts from both camps which now totals 13.

Saturday’s defeat at Coventry has left Daniel Farke’s Whites third in the Championship table, one point behind second-placed Ipswich Town and two points adrift of leaders Leicester City who also have a game in hand. Sunderland, who are 13th, have bagged just one win from their last ten games.
