Cooper, who has played three of Leeds’ first four Premier League games this season, had a muscle problem while playing internationally with Scotland that forced him to miss the Scot’s Nations League clashes with Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
While the problem isn’t as bad as initially feared, he could miss the clash with the Wolves on Monday night, where the Whites will try to extend their unbeaten league run to four games.

Cooper isn’t the only center-back struggling with a muscle problem. Diego Llorente, the newcomer in the summer, also has problems. The Spaniard, who was signed by Real Sociedad for around £ 18million, has sustained a similar injury while on international service.
“Llorente has a muscle problem. Cooper also has a muscle problem, but it’s not that bad, ”Bielsa said during the press conference on Friday afternoon before the game. “He runs the risk of missing the game against the wolves on Monday.
On the positive side, however, Bielsa has confirmed that midfield duo Pablo Hernandez and Mateusz Klich are both available for selection.
Midfield Dynamo Hernandez have missed Leeds’ last three Premier League games with a thigh complaint. Klich has since returned unharmed from international service with Poland.
