Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that Pablo Hernandez is available for the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The West Yorkshire club will take on Wolves at Elland Road in the Premier League on Monday evening.
Attacking midfielder Hernandez has not played in the Whites’ last two games due to a groin injury, as reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post, but Bielsa has said that the 35-year-old Spaniard is available.
When asked about his team news, Bielsa told The Yorkshire Evening Post: “Pablo is fine. Klich I have no news of him having any difficulties, Llorente has a muscular problem, Cooper also has a muscular problem but it’s not as bad which puts him at risk of missing the game against Wolves on Monday. All the other internationals returned without any problems.”
Boost for Leeds United
Hernandez, who can also operate as a winger, is a key figure at Leeds and is one of the best players in Bielsa’s side.
The former Swansea City star being available for Monday’s game is a big boost to Leeds’s chances of winning against Wolves.
The Wanderers have a good team and will be determined to win at Elland Road, and Hernandez could play a big role for the hosts.
The Spaniard is a very creative player who also scores goals, and he could make it tough for Wolves defensively.
According to WhoScored, Hernandez scored nine goals and provided nine assists in the Championship last season, and he scored 12 goals and provided 12 assists in the league in 2018-19.
