Leeds United are going to win promotion this season, and it will be down to this man

Leeds United continued their excellent start to the Championship season this weekend as they ground out a 0-0 draw with a well drilled Middlesbrough side.

The Whites look to finally be on their way back to winning ways, and under manager Marcelo Bielsa, look like being serious contenders to win promotion to the top flight, despite it being early days in the campaign.

With a Leeds team playing some exciting football, and the fans back on side, there are many reasons to believe why the club are going back to the top flight, but one of the main reasons will be the form and ability of attacking midfielder Samu Saiz.

The Spaniard has been in scintillating form this term already, and has become a key man for the Whites under Bielsa.

He showed glimpses last season, but was let down by discipline problems which cost him valuable time on the field, but this term he seems to have returned with a fresh appetite to perform in the Championship.

One of few players in the second tier who can control a game and provide the bit of magic needed to win it if needed, Saiz is going to be vital to any success Leeds have during the campaign.

If they can indeed maintain their form, then along with the form of fellow Spaniard Pablo Hernandez, Saiz could well prove to be the key man for the Whites and write his name in the history books as a Leeds great if he can continue his form over the course of a number of seasons.

Leeds fans, what do you think of Saiz? Class act? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
