TEAM NEWS: Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa confirms captain Liam Cooper (calf) is fit to play on Saturday but will not say if he starts at Fulham. He did light training today.— BBC West Yorkshire Sport (@WYSdaily) December 19, 2019
Jamie Shackleton & Tyler Roberts are healthy & will be back in full training next week. #lufc pic.twitter.com/G7XlTYQ279
Bielsa says Roberts and Shackleton are fit again. But Forshaw still not ready to return. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHay_) December 19, 2019
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.
Anybody remember when Forshaw played for Leeds? Those were the days.— Josh Hobbs (@JoshAHobbs) December 19, 2019
