Stuart Dallas is set to be out for a few weeks with an injury to his quadriceps being confirmed by Marcelo Bielsa in today’s press conference.
The versatile Leeds man came into the side as a sub during last weekend’s win over Stoke City.
He will not, however, play a part in the next few games with him out for two weeks – as per Phil Hay on Twitter:
Dallas injury is a problem with a quad muscle. Looking at a couple of weeks out. #lufc

Dallas is the sort of player Bielsa will surely like.
He can play in a number of positions to a decent enough standard and that therefore makes him very useful.
If he’s not fit, though, that does no-one any favours and you’ve got to again look at how small our squad is and wonder whether we can deal with injuries potentially piling up.
At least, though, the player is only out for a couple of weeks and he’ll be back involved sooner rather than later.
