Leeds United manager Thomas Christiansen has confirmed that striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga, midfielder Stuart Dallas and attacker Mateusz Klich are all out of the Championship clash with Barnsley at Oakwell.

Lasogga will definitely miss the game having picked up an injury in training, with Dallas also out injured after suffering a reaction to an injury he picked up on international duty with Northern Ireland.

Klich doesn’t appear to be injured and posted a cryptic tweet earlier on Friday that suggested he was going to be dropped by Christiansen.

Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post and Adam Pope of the BBC revealed the team news from Christiansen’s press conference earlier today.

Lasogga has scored five goals in ten Championship appearances for Leeds this season since arriving on a season-long loan from Hamburg in the summer. It is hoped he will return in time to face Aston Villa at Elland Road next Friday.

Meanwhile, Dallas has aggravated a foot injury he suffered for Northern Ireland in their World Cup qualifying play-off with Switzerland. The 26-year-old has made 13 Championship appearances for the Whites this campaign, scoring twice.

Leeds have lost seven of their past nine Championship games, a run which has seen them fall from the play-off places to 10th place in the league table.

Christiansen’s side will be looking to bounce back from Wednesday’s 4-1 defeat at Wolves against their Yorkshire rivals tomorrow.

In other Leeds United news, former Whites midfielder David Prutton has criticised the club’s manager for this decision.
