Championship

Nightmare November: Leeds United

Nightmare November: Leeds United

Leeds United have been completely dominant in the Championship this season, with things beginning to piece together nicely under Marcelo Bielsa. 

The Whites find themselves sitting in pole position in the Championship having enjoyed a successful start to life under Bielsa, who has really rallied his troops since making the move to Elland Road.

Although, it’s vital that Leeds can continue to ensure consistency in what could prove to be a season-defining month, with the opportunity to mount a lead at the top of the table.

Although, with plenty of games still yet to come and a number of negative factors possibly coming into play, the Yorkshire club could soon find themselves slipping away.

Therefore, here’s TWO things that could force Leeds United to take a step backwards…

ROOFE SUFFERS GOAL DROUGHT

Kemar Roofe has established himself as one of the standout performers in the Championship this season, with six goals and two assists to his name, despite spending a period of time out on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, with all the speculation surrounding a potential move to the Premier League, the forward could become distracted and lose sight of his aims, which may effect his ability to find the back of the net.

And, if the Englishman suffers a goal drought, Leeds United could face a number of problems.

MARCELO BIELSA ENDURES WINLESS RUN

Leeds United are currently in a promising position to really kick on and secure automatic promotion to the Premier League after a long wait. But, there are a number of factors that could effect the Whites’ promotion push, with one of them being a winless run under Marcelo Bielsa.

Indeed, the Yorkshire club have struggled for consistency at times this season and have already amassed too many draws, so they could slip down the table if their problems return.
