Former Leeds United star David Norris insists that the club must start picking up points in their next three games if they are to climb out of their rut.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have yet to win a game this term, losing 5-1 to Manchester United, 3-0 to Liverpool, and 2-1 to West Ham United, while also drawing with Everton, Burnley, and Newcastle United.
Leeds take on Watford in their next game prior to the international break before taking on both Southampton and Wolves.
Should Leeds United make January signings?
Watford are currently 12th, Wolves are 14th, and Southampton are 16th, the latter of which have also yet to win a game this term.
Norris insists that, at the start of the season, a number of onlookers would have backed Bielsa’s side to potentially take maximum points from the three games.
However, he believes that those within the club will panic if the club cannot take at least seven points from the fixtures.
He said: “If they come out of these three with a poor points return, then the panic stations will really be high.
“They’re winnable games. Southampton, Wolves and Watford, at the start of the season you’d be looking at those and thinking Leeds can get seven or nine points there.”
