The first weeks of the new season, of course, have proven to be less than ideal at Elland Road.

Following an enormously impressive debut campaign at the top tier of English football, culminating in a commendable ninth place, the Peacocks have struggled from the first gates in 2021/22.

In their first four Premier League outings, Bielsa and company. they have collected just two points, courtesy of draws with Everton and Burnley.

There have also been a couple of very worrying defeats, with a 5-1 opening-day beating to Manchester United, followed by a 3-0 final score at home to Liverpool last time out.

As such, it goes without saying that Leeds would do well to secure a delay of the first three points of the season when they make the trip to St. James’ Park for a meeting with Newcastle United tomorrow night.

‘I can’t count on …’

However, the final word coming from the Peacocks’ camp points to a challenging 90 minutes in total at Tyneside in 24 hours.

At a press conference tonight, Marcelo Bielsa was inevitably drawn to the latest news on the well-being of his squad.

And, in a hugely worrying update, the Leeds manager confirmed that he won’t be able to call in three of his four high-level central defenders, in the form of Diego Llorente, Robin Koch and Pascal Struijk.

The latter, of course, will be left out of the ban in the coming weeks, while the former pair have not recovered from their respective injury problems.

However, in more encouraging news, Patrick Bamford was also assured to be fit and available, having come up as a surprise fitness concern earlier this week.
