The hopes of Leeds United to survive the Premier League have been dealt a blow as Tyler Adams, the USA international midfielder, has undergone surgery after a hamstring injury. The injury has led to his withdrawal from international duty and he’s set to be out for an extended period.
Adams, who moved to Elland Road from RB Leipzig last summer, has started 24 of 27 Premier League matches this season. Concerns grow over Leeds United’s ability to stay ahead in the contest for survival. The club’s management is assessing the extent of Adams’ injury and the length of his absence.
Javi Gracia’s side faces a tough challenge ahead after the transfer window with fitness doubts looming. Leeds United is to play Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday followed by Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace respectively. Willy Gnonto and Max Wober, also doubts, are crucial players if Leeds is to maintain their Premier League status.
