The squad has had a few challenges of late thanks to injury but it looks as though we’re closing in on getting key men back.
For the last few weeks, we’ve been missing Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez and Gaetano Berardi – three players that have been crucial to our good start under Marcelo Bielsa.
With that in mind, then, the update concerning the three of them should be welcomed with the Blackburn game later this month a potential return date for the trio:
Bielsa is hopeful that Roofe, Hernandez and Berardi will be back for the game at Blackburn on October 20 (the other side of the international break). Says he misses having players like that available but says he doesn't relate any dropped points to not having them available #lufc

That’s just a few weeks away now and with the international break on the horizon, it’s actually very few games to go now until the Rovers match.
It’ll be good to have all three back, then, and hopefully, in this period of time, we won’t lose anyone else to injury.
Get them fit and firing and we’ll surely be back to our swashbuckling best ahead of a busy few months of the season.
