Cooper returns. Team news for the trip to Fulham from Marcelo Bielsa’s press conference

Guess who’s back? Back again? not Adam Forshaw.

Leeds United will be boosted by the return of Liam Cooper for Saturday’s trip to promotion chasing Fulham FC.

Marcelo Bielsa also announced that England youth international Jamie Shackleton and Wales international Tyler Roberts are also fit again, but won’t be available until next week.

Bielsa isn’t guaranteed to put Cooper back in the starting line-up, but I certainly hope he does in order to help deal with Serbia striker, and in my opinion the best striker in the Championship, Aleksandar Mitrovic. This would probably mean ex-Switzerland international Gaetano Berardi drops to the bench, as Fulham usually line up with one central striker.

In other injury news, there is no news and therefore no public timetable, on the return of midfielder Adam Forshaw to the Whites squad.
