Leeds have bin hit with another injury crisis in what seems like a season the medical staff will earn a heavy Christmas Bonus.
Injuries to both Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas in Leeds’ 1-0 win over Sheffield United are set to keep the pair out until after the new year.
Cooper, who seemed to have suffered a bad knee injury has been flown to Rome in order to receive surgery and is expected to miss the next four to six weeks while recovering.
Although the centre back will be a huge miss for the Whites, the emergence and impressive play of Aapo Halme should ease any fears of Leeds struggling to make a strong side for key clashes against Aston Villa, Hull and Nottingham Forest.
Whereas as the loss of Dallas, the sides only remaining full back fill-in should be a bitter pill to swallow. Although his performances have been suspect, he had been Bielsa’s only option and had began to fulfil the role successfully over the past couple of matches.
Dallas is set to miss the next four to six weeks with a fractured foot, adding to the woes is the fact both Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi are set to be out for the new year. This leaves Tom Pearce and Barry Douglas as the only viable options at full back.

Many Thanks to the YEP’s excellent journalist Phil Hay.
Ex-Leeds United Robbie Keane striker announces his retirement from football. The Irish striker played forty six games from 2001-02 and scored thirteen goals for Leeds. We wish him well.
Here’s our half time interview with a Rival and this time it’s a Mr and Mrs Sheffield United version!
How long have you both supported Sheffield United?
I got my first season ticket at the age of 4, so 26 years
I've supported The Blades for 30 years
What’s your favourite moment as a ‘Blades’ fan. Season, game or anything other occasion.
For me, it was the play off semi final back in 2004 against Notts Forest. It was the second leg at the Lane and it ended 4-3. Late goals in extra time and a great time to be a Blade. Warnock was in charge, we'd had a fantastic cup run that season, and it really felt like our year....didn't turn out that way though!
I have to say, shutting the Wednesday fans up with Duffy's goal during the Sheffield Derby at Hillsborough last year was also a highlight!
Winning 5-2 at Leicester City on the last day of the season back in 1990. Funnily enough, Leeds and Sheff United were promoted to the top flight and Sheffield Wednesday were relegated! All in all, great memories.
Tell us about a player that you were proud to have on the back of a shirt, if you didn’t is there one you wished you would have.
Tough one that! Ndlovu is definitely up there; he was an exciting player, and we could do with someone similar this season to give us the edge! Micheal Brown and Jagielka too. And not forgetting a golden oldie, Dane Whitehouse (a childhood hero!).
But if I had to pick I would go with Harry Maguire; such a brilliant attitude, reliable centre-back, came through the ranks at the club, and I always thought he showed great maturity in the way he played.
Brian Dean. All day long. Absolute legend and my hero growing up.
