LEEDS EYEING FIRST WIN IN FOUR
Leeds United are eyeing a first win in four games in all competitions ahead of their Premier League clash with Aston Villa in three day’s time. Leeds United are at home to Villa this weekend with the quest to record their first win in four Premier League games.
Since the win over Chelsea in the Premier League, Leeds United have failed to beat Brighton, Everton and Brentford though it must be pointed out that they secured a 3-1 home win over League One side Barnsley in the EFL Cup second round to book their place in the third round of the competition.
German star Pascal Gross scored the only goal as Brighton beat Leeds United 1-0 at home to start the three-game winless run for the Lilywhites both in the Premier League and in all competitions. They had to come from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Merseyside outfit Everton thanks to the goal from new signing Luis Sinisterra. The draw with the Toffees made it two games without defeat for Leeds United. Their last league game ended in a 5-2 defeat at the hands of London club Brentford thus making it three games without a win for the Lilywhites.
Steven Gerrard and his Villa players are on a two-game unbeaten run ahead of facing Leeds at the start of next week. Steven Gerrard has steadied the Aston Villa ship in recent weeks after losing four games in the first five league games. At least a draw at Leeds will take the unbeaten run for Steven Gerrard and his players to three games.
