Pundit Concerned As Leeds United Full-Back Set For A Spell On The Sidelines: Problem For Marsch?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent interview with Football Insider, pundit Paddy Kenny was concerned as Leeds United full-back is set for a spell on the sidelines after he suffered a femoral fracture versus Manchester City last weekend. Kenny said,

“It’s another bad injury to another key player. It just shows the bad luck they have had this season.

“You can do nothing but feel sorry for him and Leeds are definitely going to miss him.

“He is someone you look to in a relegation fight. A cool head, who can keep everyone calm if things start to go wrong.

“You can replace his ability but not what he gives to that side in terms of leadership. It’s a big loss.”

Dallas’ Impressive Numbers In English Football This Season

Dallas was having a solid campaign at Elland Road prior to his recent injury as he was responsible for putting in a run of consistent displays for the Whites over the past ten months. The 31-year-old has registered one goal and one assist in 37 matches for the Yorkshire giants this season on all fronts.

The Cookstown-born talent has given a good account of himself by averaging 2.7 tackles, 1.7 interceptions, 1.6 clearances, 0.9 shots, 0.9 key passes and 0.9 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He even distributed the ball relatively well after completing 78.8% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Dallas Set For A Spell On The Sidelines: Can Leeds United Boss Jesse Marsch Cope With His Absence?

Dallas is a tough-tackling midfielder who can read the danger quickly which helps him earn the ball back for his side inside his half. He usually clears his lines when needed and can even create some decent chances for his teammates in the final third.

The 56-time Northern Ireland international can even make some clever runs with the ball in the opponent’s half and has got a wealth of experience under his belt.

Thus, losing a player of Dallas’ quality will be a massive blow for Leeds ahead of the final few weeks of this campaign. The Whites are currently fighting for their Premier League lives and losing the experienced campaign will be a bitter pill to swallow for Jesse March.

With two tough fixtures coming up against Arsenal (away) and Chelsea (at Elland Road), the Yorkshire outfit could struggle to stay up while trying to cope with Dallas’ injury absence in the coming weeks.
