Marcelo Bielsa


Leeds United

boss, hopes to see

Jack Grealish

back on form to

Aston Villa

's lineup when the two clubs are meeting on Saturday.

After Grealish was absent to play against Leicester last weekend, the rumors about his injury were spread, and then the news leaked by one of the club members, for which Aston Villa will investigate to find and react to.

Reportedly he will be taking a long time to come back to the pitch, but it is not yet known if he will be back for the upcoming match.

"I always prefer that opponents have their best players available because even if that fortifies a team, and makes them more scary to face, it’s also a stimulus for us to face such players, to try to neutralise them."

Said Bielsa.

The 65-year-old is also dealing with his own injured players such as



Kalvin Philips

, and

Robin Koch

. However, it has been said that

Mateusz Klich

will be available for the weekend.

Bielsa wants Philips to be back to the training when he is completely well as his injury could get worse.
