Leeds United have started their spell under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa in superb form, establishing themselves as the early pacesetters in the hunt for promotion from the Championship.

The Peacocks are seeking a return to the Premier League for the first time since their relegation in 2004 but their hopes have been handed a huge blow ahead of the return to club football this week, as Bielsa has confirmed Pablo Hernandez faces an extended period on the sidelines, along with Kemar Roofe and Gaetano Berardi.

Attacking midfielder Hernandez was expected to return to training this week after pulling out of Leeds’ draw with Middlesbrough prior to the international break but that is claimed to not be the case, handing Bielsa a major headache.

A course of treatment could now see the Spaniard miss a further three weeks and fans on Twitter flocked to express their dismay at the news of his injury setback, as well as the other absentees, which could derail their charge.
