Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams 75 per cent likely to miss crunch Liverpool Premier League clash

Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams just has a 25 per cent chance of being fit for the Liverpool game on Saturday night in the Premier League.

The American is reeling from a calf strain and having missed the game against Fulham, he is unlikely to be fit for the game.

Jesse Marsch himself said, via the club’s official website, that Adams is a doubt while injury expert Ben Dinnery reveals that he’s 75 per cent likely to miss the game but will still have a late fitness test.

Major blow

Adams is a first-team regular and one of Marsch’s hand-picked players during the summer window.

He has started every game he’s been fit in and the Leeds boss certainly would not want him to miss another game, especially in the current climate.

Marsch faces a daunting task ahead of him, with the likelihood of him losing his job more real than it’s ever been in his Leeds stint.

While the board are not going to make such a big decision based off one game against one of the best teams in Europe, the performance and desire could say more than the eventual result.

If Leeds suffer a humiliation by over three goals and get completely outplayed, we will not be surprised if Marsch’s sacking news breaks shortly after the full-time whistle.

Marsch knows Adams is important to his cause but at the same time, will be advised not to play him if the chances of an injury relapse are as high as they are now.

In other Leeds United news, a Sky Sports pundit has delivered Jesse Marsch’s “sack” verdict after what he heard this month.
