3 reasons why Leeds will upset Leicester in the Carabao Cup

Leeds United supporters have been making a lot of noise in the Transfer Tavern in recent days after seeing their side end a three-match losing streak with a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Bristol City, propelling them up to fourth in the Championship table.

Thomas Christiansen’s men went into their clash at Ashton Gate on Saturday having lost their last three league games and four of their last five, a run which saw them fall off the pace of leaders Wolves. However, the Yorkshire giants bounced back by easing past Lee Johnson’s Robins, with a brace for Samuel Saiz and a Pierre Michel Lasogga strike securing a 3-0 win for the Whites, and in turn moving them up to fourth in the table and four points behind second place Cardiff City.

And, unsurprisingly, several of our resident Leeds fans were in fine voice over the weekend following their side’s impressive performance, and their attentions will now be turning to an intriguing Carabao Cup tie away at managerless Leicester City on Tuesday night.

The Foxes parted company with Craig Shakespeare last week but caretaker boss Michael Appleton led them to a vital 2-1 victory at Swansea City on Saturday, a result which moved them out of the Premier League’s bottom three.

And the King Power faithful will be hoping for back-to-back successes when Leeds visit the Midlands on Tuesday night, but having already beaten a top-flight side in Burnley during the competition, Christiansen’s men will themselves be confident of causing an upset.
