Injury expert shares Leeds United update ahead of Premier League clash v West Ham United

Leeds United will be without four first-team players for their Premier League clash against West Ham United, according to injury expert, Ben Dinnery.

Luis Sinisterra, Tyler Adams and Stuart Dallas are all long-term absentees from Sam Allardyce’s plans and won’t feature on Sunday (21 May).

Liam Cooper missed the 2-2 draw with Newcastle United and Dinnery rates the 31-year-old’s chances of playing at just “50 per cent”. Junior Firpo will also miss the game after being sent off against Eddie Howe’s side.


By the time this fixture comes around, it could well be fairly meaningless for David Moyes’ side. Their Premier League safety could well be secure and they could have a European final to look forward to. Realistically, West Ham’s main focus is now the Conference League.

The win over AZ Alkmaar in the first leg was impressive but the job is far from complete. They battled back whilst not at their best, but it promises to be a hostile atmosphere in the return leg and it’s something the players must deal with.

Leeds will be hoping West Ham get the job done on Thursday evening. It could allow Moyes to rotate his squad once again ahead of the final, which could see the Hammers field a slightly weakened side.

The Yorkshire club are currently fighting for their lives and will be hoping to put three more points on the board heading into the last weekend of the season. It promises to be a nervy Sunday afternoon for those in the away end.
