Junior Firpo spotted in Leeds United training ahead of Tottenham Hotspur clash
Leeds United will possibly have the services of Junior Firpo to count on with the Spaniard being spotted in their pre-game training video.
The summer signing missed the Whites’ last Premier League game, when they drew 1-1 to Leicester City.
However, in the video Leeds shared on their official website, Firpo, along with Joe Gelhardt, are shown going through some intense training drills.
Back in the eleven?
Firpo has not enjoyed the best of starts to life in the Premier League at Elland Road.
The pace of the English top flight has been something he is still to get used to and Marcelo Bielsa is surely going to show patience with him.
However, of late, his performances have drastically improved and we’re expecting him back in the eleven v Spurs.
Another boost is the fact that Gelhardt is likely to play some part in the game, albeit he is unlikely to be thrown into the eleven.
The young attacker is known to change the game coming off the bench and should the Whites need some inspiration, Bielsa could turn to him.
It’s imperative for the Yorkshire outfit to return to winning ways as they’re facing a very serious threat of being in a relegation battle.
Antonio Conte’s side is certainly going to be tougher to beat than Nuno Espirito Santo’s was, but there must be no excuses for Leeds to not put in a performance worthy of winning.
