Leeds United will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday night at Elland Road.
After back-to-back wins against Newcastle United and Leicester City, Leeds suffered a 2-1 defeat against Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton in midweek.
Ahead of the match, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has made an interesting comment in his press conference today when he was asked about how high he’s aiming to finish in the Premier League this season.
This is what he said as relayed by Phil Hay.
Bielsa was asked about how high he’s aiming to finish in the Premier League. “If you finish eighth by not playing well, for me it’s worse than finishing 12th by playing well. But it’s also true that by playing well, it’s easier to finish higher up the table.”
What a man! As long as we finish above 17th in this 1st season back I really don’t mind where we finish! It’s the best & most exciting brand of attacking football I’ve ever seen us play & it’s a joy to watch! Stick with Bielsa & we’ll continue to reap the rewards over time 🤍
