Leeds United have been firing on all cylinders this season and are looking good after taking all three points off Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United at the weekend.

That victory, alongside West Brom’s draw on Monday, has given Marcelo Bielsa’s side a four-point cushion heading into the busy festive season but a stern challenge lies ahead if they are to retain their spot in the automatic promotion positions.

A major blow was suffered this week following the injury sustained by captain Liam Cooper, who has undergone surgery on his knee and is set to be absent until the New Year – potentially missing as much as six weeks.

That has left Leeds’ squad looking rather depleted defensively, as Stuart Dallas is also amongst those injured, and the rest of the team will need to rally amidst these absences to maintain their charge for a return to the Premier League.

Cooper took to Twitter after surgery and was quickly met with a wealth of responses from supporters. We have gathered some of their comments below.
