Marcelo Bielsa provides injury update on Eddie Nketiah

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has revealed that Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah has been ruled out of his side's match against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend, Inside Futbol confirmed.

Nketiah was not in the matchday squad in Leed's 2-0 victory against Queens Park Rangers last weekend and Bielsa told the media that Nketiah felt uneasy in his abdomen.

The Arsenal loanee was reportedly expected to return to action to take on Blackburn but Bielsa confirmed that he will not be available for selection. 

“It’s the same I said before. His injury is in his abdomen.

“Week to week we evaluate the time of recovery. Now is one week and they told us one more week to see how he progresses.

“In the next seven days, I will inform you if he is able or must continue to recover.”

Leeds are currently third on the English Championship log having accumulated 28 points from 15 matches played.
