Leeds United injury and suspension list as Whites lose Dan James for the rest of the season

By Oscar Haley

Leeds United's fight for Premier League survival took another blow last night after they fell 3-0 to Chelsea at Elland Road in what was a dismal display from the Whites.

Goals from Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Romelu Lukaku saw Thomas Tuchel's side past the Whites as Jesse Marsch's side were dealt another blow following Dan James' red card, which will see the Welsh winger miss the final two games of Leeds' season.

The Whites are level on points with Burnley but sit in 18th place inside the relegation zone by virtue of having a worse goal difference.

Here is an early look at Leeds’ injury and suspension list in the wake of the defeat to Chelsea.

Dan James - Suspended

Dan James' dangerous challenge on Mateo Kovacic saw Anthony Taylor given no choice but to send off the Leeds United winger in the first half of the 3-0 defeat to Chelsea.

James will now miss the remainder of the season meaning he won't face either Brighton or Brentford.

What Marsch said (May 11): "At first I thought it wasn’t a red. I haven’t seen it but I was told it was a red. Dan said he didn’t mean to do it, he was just trying to be aggressive to win the ball and caught him in a little bit of a bad way Dan feels terrible."

Luke Ayling – Suspended

Luke Ayling's sending off against Arsenal at the weekend means he missed the Chelsea clash and will also miss the games against Brighton and Brentford.

What Marsch said (May 8): “Yeah, it's a little bit ironic considering it's 500 matches from Luke and he's such an experienced player. Just a moment of poor judgment from him, but he's been an incredible part of what we've accomplished here so far since I've been here. I'm disappointed for him and the team, but whatever, that's the situation, we have to accept it and we just have to move forward.”

Raphinha - Cramping

Brazilian winger Raphinha was substituted in the loss to Chelsea after cramping up in the second-half. He should be ok to face Brighton and will have a scan today.

What Marsch said (May 11): "Raphinha was more precautionary, he was cramping and I wanted to make sure we didn’t push him too much.

Potential return date: May 15

Jack Harrison - Hamstring

Jack Harrison was substituted after going down with what looked like a hamstring injury. Like Raphinha, he will undergo a scan today.

What Marsch said (May 11): "We’ll see how Jack is."

Potential return date: Unknown

Stuart Dallas – Leg

A horror show clash with Manchester City's Jack Grealish saw Stuart Dallas season ended. Leeds could really do with Dallas' versatility right now but will have to make do with what they have as they fight for survival.

What Marsch said (May 6): "He had a successful surgery, it was a long surgery – five and a half hours. But they believe that the outcome was very positive and they say it’ll be a long recovery, but believe it will be a full recovery.

“He has had something like 400-500 messages from fans, family and friends. We know that he’s loved and I think that this moment proved that more than anything… I think we can safely say it’ll be six months but it could be longer and I don’t want to rush anything.”

Potential return date: Unknown

Patrick Bamford – Foot

Leeds United have been sorely lacking an edge up front with striker Patrick Bamford injured for the majority of the season. Chelsea came too soon for the England international but he could be in line to face Brighton this weekend.

What Marsch said (May 6): “I watched him on the pitch today and he was moving really well. He was doing a lot of ball work, relatively active and dynamic. We’ll go step by step, but hopefully we can get him into training next week.”

Potential return date: May 15

Crysencio Summerville – Ankle

Crysencio Summerville's season is over. An ankle injury picked up ahead of Leeds' 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace means he won't play for the rest of the campaign.

What Marsch said (April 28): “Picked up an injury in the last training session before the Palace match. He twisted his ankle and will be done for the season.”

Potential return date: Next season

Adam Forshaw – Knee

Adam Forshaw is also out for the remainder of the season after picking up a knee injury in April.

What Marsch said (April 22): “We had an unfortunate injury with Adam. He took a knock and fractured his knee cap. It’s a six-week injury, so that puts him out for the season. By summer, he’ll be back and ready to go.”

Potential return date: Next season

Tyler Roberts – Hamstring

Marsch revealed in April that Tyler Roberts is progressing well in his hamstring recovery. He is however still set to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery after Leeds' 1-0 defeat to Leicester in March.

What Marsch said (April 22): "Tyler Roberts is also making good progress.”

Potential return date: Next season
