The four Leeds United players who’ll definitely be absent for Everton clash

Kavlin Phillips and Patrick Bamford are among the Leeds United players who are injured.

Everton have a number of injury problems heading into their crunch clash against Leeds United at Goodison Park on Saturday (15.00).

The 16th-placed Toffees have won just one of their past 15 Premier League games - and lost their previous four.

But they have a chance to pick up three points and reignite their season against 15th-placed Leeds.

Frank Lampard could have up to six players absent, however.

Abdoulaye Docuoure (groin), Ben Godfrey (hamstring), Fabian Delph (thigh) and Tom Davies (hamstring) are all on the sidelines.

However, the Whites have injury issues of their own.

Patrick Bamford has been hampered by a foot injury for the majority of the season.

The striker has managed just eight appearances all season and continues to feel aggravated by his problem.

Bamford's still not outside running, which indicates he's several weeks away from returning to full fitness.

Bielsa will be without another indispensable player in midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

The England international has not played for the Whites since 5 December because of a hamstring injury and underwent an operation.

Phillips isn't to be expected back until next month.

Leeds are hoping that Liam Cooper, who has the same injury as Phillips, will return around a similar time.

Sam Greenwood had knee surgery last month and there is no time frame on when he'll be back.

Meanwhile, Junior Firpo missed Leeds’ enthralling 3-3 draw against Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Bielsa admitted before the encounter that he is being cautious with the defender.

Charlie Cresswell (shoulder) also was left out despite being fully fit again while Jamie Shackleton was on the bench after a heel issue.
