Cooper is one of the best and most important players for Leeds, but the 28-year-old central defender did not play against Huddersfield on Saturday due to a calf stain.

Bielsa has suggested that Cooper could miss the game against Hull at Elland Road on Tuesday evening.

Bielsa told Leeds Live about Cooper: "We don’t know. Today, it would have been a risk to play. I don’t think this situation is going to change on Tuesday.”
