Good news on the injury front.

It appears that Pablo Hernandez will be good to go against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday after Thomas Christiansen said “He had a muscle problem which he felt a little bit. In that moment he was clever and he understood that it’s better to come out so it didn’t get worse.”

It’s a good thing that Hernandez is good to go for the QPR match, as Leeds looked a bit lost without him on the pitch. Saiz, Hernandez, and Alioski provide the most creativity for the side and provide the scoring punch when Kemar Roofe or Caleb Ekuban are playing up front as the lone striker in the 4-2-3-1. Here’s hoping that even if PM Lasogga is somehow fit enough to play that the team selection is about the same.
