Leeds United fans were handed a massive fitness worry this week surrounding Robin Koch ahead of the Chelsea clash.

Football Insider reported that the German international was a major doubt after missing days of training this week at Thorp Arch.

Koch has started every single Premier League game this season and has kept consecutive clean-sheets against both Everton and Arsenal.

Has Koch potentially handed Leeds a massive boost on Saturday though?

The 24-year-old often posts on his personal Instagram account in the build-up to games, and he has done just that ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge.

It is hard to say whether or not Koch would post these previews if he was ruled out, and this could be a massive hint that he is ready to start.

Rodrigo has also posted a similar story on his account, something he didn’t do for the games that he missed against Leicester and Palace.

Marcelo Bielsa named the same starting XI for consecutive games for the first time this season against and will likely make that three at Stamford Bridge.

Diego Llorente is fit and ready should he be needed after injury, but Bielsa admitted that he would prefer to use the Spaniard in the under-23s first before welcoming him back.

Our MOT Super Fans were gutted with the potential absence of Koch, claiming that it would be a “massive blow” if he was to miss out.

No one has averaged more interceptions per game in the Whites squad according to WhoScored, and that epitomises his skill in the heart of defence.

Hopefully, this latest social media activity is a massive hint that he is fit and ready to take his spot alongside Liam Cooper tonight.
