Three Leeds United players are listed as out for the game against Norwich – Journalist.

According to Ben McKenna, Leeds United will be without at least three players when they play Norwich City on Saturday, October 21.

The journalist claimed in a piece published on the Yorkshire Evening Post website on Sunday, October 15, that Djed Spence, Willy Gnonto, and Stuart Dallas might not travel with the Whites to Carrow Road.

In addition, Junior Firpo might resume training this week in preparation for the game against the Canaries, while Jamie Shackleton, who missed the win against Bristol City, might be back in the mix.

Unsurprising

Given that each of the three injured players has previously been sidelined for an extended period of time, the most recent squad news before to the trip to Norfolk doesn’t exactly contain many shocks.

Dallas, who had a leg fracture in April 2022, is still recovering, while Spence hurt his knee in practise and Gnonto injured his ankle against Hull City.

Daniel Farke stated that he was confident Shackleton will have recovered from his shoulder injury by the end of the international break, therefore Shackleton may be pushing for a comeback.

Even if Firpo returns to training this week after not having played a single minute of football so far this season, the match may come a little too soon for him.

Since the Whites manager now has adequate depth in his squad as a result of some excellent late-summer hiring at Elland Road, it is likely that he will approach the injuries with some care.
