Leeds United: Fans fear lack of goals will cause another season of disappointment

Marcelo Bielsa’s second season in charge of Leeds United is starting to look all too much like his first, as they begin to let their early-season form drop. The Whites now sit in fifth place, albeit only two points off top spot, but their inability to finish chances is worrying the Elland Road faithful.

In the Championship this season, they’ve had an average of 16 shots per game yet have only scored 15 in the first 11 matches. In an article by Phil Hay, Leeds writer for The Athletic, he points out that in the last five seasons, it’s taken an average of 80 goals per season to gain automatic promotion. Leeds are currently only on target to reach 63.

When Hay shared his article on Twitter noting Bielsa is giving players time off in the international break despite these worrying stats, fans were concerned. They took to the replies to express the feeling that last season’s disappointment may just be about to happen all over again.

You can see some of their reactions to the tweet below:

What do you think needs to change for Leeds United to gain automatic promotion this season?
