Thomas Christiansen has said that Caleb Ekuban, who is recovering from a broken foot, will be the only Leeds player that will be unavailable for selection this weekend against Ipswich Town. This is great news after the central defence has been tested for a number weeks with injuries to three of the four players. With almost an entire roster to choose from, Christiansen again has a happy head-ache of who which in-form player to select.
