Tyler Adams Injury Leaves Leeds United Star Out for the Season
What is Tyler Adams’ Injury?
The American was initially out for the victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers with a hamstring injury, with some at the club hoping that the midfielder could return after the international break. However, this hasn’t been the case, with the injury requiring surgery. Some sources believe that this is likely to keep the player out for the remainder of the season, whilst Phil Hay’s piece is a little more optimistic about a return.
What Other Leeds United Injuries Are There?
The USMNT player isn’t the only one suffering from an injury in the Leeds United squad. Willy Gnonto had to come off incredibly early in a fixture against Malta for Italy, whilst Max Wober is also likely to be a doubt for the fixture against Arsenal. In a tight relegation battle, this is a significant concern. Similarly, Weston McKennie is struggling with the flu, but has played through it.
How Do Leeds United Deal with a Tyler Adams Injury?
Leeds United have a few options in the club to make up for Adams’ injury, with a midfield of McKennie and Marc Roca being the preferred choice against Wolves. Beyond that options are relatively thin, with Adam Forshaw being highly injury-prone and Archie Gray and Darko Gyabi both lacking experience. If the crisis in central midfield continues to worsen, the Whites could be in serious trouble.
