Leeds United survived a tough match at Hull City in midweek to maintain their unbeaten run under Daniel Farke, but the away point did not come without a big loss.
Wilfried Gnonto suffered a blow to his foot and twisted his ankle as the Whites waited for news of his condition.
The Italian striker was replaced by Crysencio Summerville in the first half due to concerns over the youngster.
Farke revealed Gnonto will undergo further assessment ahead of this weekend’s clash with Watford.
Ethan Ampadu came into the starting lineup against the Tigres thanks to a setback and played the full 90 minutes of the tie at MKM Stadium, with Farke’s injuries much less than earlier this season.
One change Farke absolutely must make is replacing Joe Rodon in the lineup against the Hornets after the defender received a red card at Hull.
Followinglast night’s draw against Hull City, here’s a look at Leeds United’s current injury situation.
Wilfried Gnonto – ankle What Daniel Farke said (September 20): “Yes, it was a blow to the foot, his ankle also rolled a bit, it was quite sore, it was a bit swollen and we have to wait for further assessment, I I hope it’s not like that. terrible.” . But now we have to wait.
Mostread Estimated return date: N/ADjed Spence – kneeWhat Farke said (September 17): “Yes, sad news from Spence because Djed has had surgery on his lateral ligaments.
He will be out for several weeks, so we are awaiting further evaluation. It appears that no surgery is necessary, but we must wait for further evaluation. He will definitely miss the next few weeks.
We still have to wait to give you a deadline, but it will definitely be available in a few weeks.
Club update (September 18): “Leeds United defender Djed Spence injured his knee last week after a challenge in training and from scans we can confirm he has damaged his collateral ligament.
The injury is not expected to require surgery and we expect Djed to return to play within eight weeks.“We wish Djed a speedy recovery.”Patrick Bamford – Hamstrings What Farke said (September 19): Good news from Patrick Bamford, he joined us yesterday, back in team training for the first time.
Obviously this week’s games come a little early for him after about eight weeks out, but it’s good news and a really big boost for us.
“When you return to team training, you are theoretically available, but we must not forget that he was absent for eight weeks.
If there’s an emergency or something like that or we have a special idea, yes, he’s back at team practice and might be available, but he’s not in my plans for the tomorrow’s match because he only had one training session and I think we have to be a little cautious.
Firpojunior – kneeWhat Farke said (September 19): “Junior is still training individually, we hope he can return to team training as soon as possible.”
Liam Cooper – Plantar fasciitisWhat Farke said (September 17): “Liam is back training and that’s definitely good news. The first time we fully returned to training was Thursday.
“We have decided that he is our captain and we want him to return as quickly as possible with his experience, his quality and his influence in the dressing room.”
But he was out for more than six weeks and then two training sessions weren’t enough because we also have a good group.
“I think a few more days on the training pitch will be useful, but I’m also pretty sure he will soon be available for the matchday squad too.”
Stuart Dallas: broken legWhat Farke said (September 15): We have Stuart Dallas on the long-term list, but he’s moving on too.
Joe Rodon – SuspensionJoe Rodon will miss Leeds’ Elland Road clash with Watford after being sent off for two booked offenses against Hull City on Wednesday night.
