Marcelo Bielsa: Diego Llorente is in condition to play again

Head coach on Burnley.

Marcelo Bielsa has spoken with the media, ahead of the upcoming Premier League clash with Burnley.

Leeds United return to Elland Road and want to pick up where they left off on home turf, after defeating Newcastle United 5-2 last time out.

The head coach began his update with team news.

He said: “Liam Cooper has a strain in his abdominals, it’s subject to his evolution how long he will be out for.”

“Diego Llorente is in condition to play again.”

Marcelo was asked about how he manages players that are currently on four yellow cards, with the cut-off point not coming until the 19th game.

“The only advice possible is to be wary of picking up another caution and to be cautious,” he explained.

Two games in quick succession see the Whites take on Burnley and West Bromwich Albion.

Bielsa was left in no doubt that both matches would be equally challenging as taking on the sides at the top end of the table.

“There’s no easy game to win,” said Bielsa.

“All the points have value.

“Both things you say are true [that Leeds should be more likely to pick up points in these two matches].

“But it is also true what I said that all the games important and all the points are valuable.”
