Robin Koch could make Leeds United return on November 21

Leeds United defender Robin Koch is set to miss the Leicester clash this Sunday due to a pelvic injury, according to LeedsLive.

The report details that he could make his return for the Whites on November 21 when they take on Tottenham Hotspur post the international break.

He recently had hip surgery in Philadelphia and is currently in rehabilitation.

Need him back soon

Leeds’ defence this season has been in freefall and it’s hard to attribute the blame to just one person.

Changes in system and personnel have seen the Whites players struggle to get on the same wavelength and there have been catastrophic defensive gaffes since August.

Liam Cooper, the team’s captain, has also been guilty of making errors that have led to opposition goals and with everyone fit, may not be in Bielsa’s top two centre-backs.

Once Koch returns and Diego Llorente remains fit, Bielsa could play the two of them at the heart of his defence in a back four.

When he moves to his 3-3-1-3 formation, there’s a good chance that Cooper makes it back into the eleven.

That said, this team looks much more organised than not with Koch in it, and Bielsa would be hoping to have him back as soon as possible.

The Whites need to stop shipping in goals as frequently as they have and tighten things up at the back before it’s too late.
