Jesse Marsch set for 'huge' last-gasp selection headache for Leeds United v Watford - report

Jesse Marsch is set for a “huge” last-gasp selection headache in his Leeds United midfield against Watford this afternoon.

That’s according to Leeds Live, who share that Kalvin Phillips is really pushing for a likely return to the starting XI.

The “huge” headache facing Marsch is who to potentially drop at Vicarage Road, either Adam Forshaw or Mateusz Klich.

Writing in their latest report sharing the likely squad for this afternoon, Leeds Live shared the news.

“Another man hopeful of a return to the starting XI is Kalvin Phillips, who made his first appearance in four months from the bench against Southampton last week,” he wrote.

“Marsch faces a huge selection headache as to whether Mateusz Klich or Adam Forshaw is the man to make way, though.”

One must go.

Despite Klich and Forshaw performing well in recent weeks, we simply have to bring Phillips back into the fold this afternoon.

Given Watford’s clear game plan of counter-attacking, we would expect the Polish international will be the one to drop out.

Phillips and Forshaw offer brilliant defensive cover in this Marsch system, allowing our front four to concentrate on matters in the final third.

The Yorkshire Pirlo is back at 100%, you can tell with each social media post with that huge smile back plastered on his face.

It is time for him to guide the Whites to Premier League safety, starting today, and then sign that new contract at Elland Road.

What a day it will be with Phillips back in that starting XI, we have been desperate for this moment for months now.
