Leeds United and Birmingham scored a total of 9 goals on Sunday, and the finals ended with a 5: 4 victory over the visiting team. But coach Bielsa's top scorer Patrick Banford has missed the game for the first time due to injury.
Bielsa said he hoped that Banford could participate in Leeds United's Champions League match against West Bromwich on New Year's Day (the two teams currently rank the top two with 51 points). Bielsa released an update on his scorer at a news conference after his victory over Birmingham: "I'm not entirely sure, but I think he will be with us next week (in appearances)."
Due to a leg injury to Banford, his position was replaced by Eddie Nketiah, his first start in the league, and Banford has started every game so far this season The record is over. The 26-year-old Leeds United top scorer has scored 10 goals in 20 league games. Enkitia, who replaced him in this round, was mediocre. Even if the team scored 5 goals, he did not score or assist.
Obviously, coach Bielsa's first wish for the new year should be to make Banford return to the top of the New Year's Day. (By gyro)
