Knew Leeds would bottle it. The Spuds will go on to win comfortably now. :thdn:

Leeds do this all the time - play well for 45-60 minutes, then somehow contrive to throw games away.

Can't help wondering how Bielsa would do over here with technically superior players to the ones he has.

Exactly this. But BBC already starting the narrative that Conte inspired the team at half time. Leeds aren’t great at all this season.

Spuds held on and are now 4 points behind us. That’s ruined my weekend. :thumbdn:

Leeds this season are us during Zola’s 2nd and last season as our manager. They have nothing about them at all.

Their goalkeeper's distribution is awful. No idea why they play the ball back to him so much.

They don't and that's why they are one of my three to drop

Chelsea & Citeh's COMBINED goals against tally is less than any other clubs total.

That's a bit mad, innit.

Leeds have been missing Bamford in pretty much how we would miss Antonio.

Leeds are starting to look like a bottom 6 team with a definite chance of relegation this season.
Newcastle will be breathing a little easier tonight because they would have been 7 points away from the 4th bottom team.
As it stands it's still only 5 points.
Reminds me of the good old days when we were watching every single game at the bottom end of the table.
That seems like an age ago thankfully

Something I've noticed looking at the table

The only teams with positive goal differences are Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool and West Ham, who have comfortable positive GDs, and the only other team is Palace who are +1. Wolves are on 0 after their win over us.

Most other teams are negative, including 5th placed Arsenal who are -4, 7th placed Spurs on -7 and 8th placed Man Utd on -1. Even Leicester City are on -5.

Leeds so depleated. No Bamford, raphina, Rodrigo and had to stick phillips in defence too with some 19 year old up top. Spurs caught Leeds at a decent time tbh.
I guess spurs 'are back' now.

This is mostly because Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea are good to hit anyone for 3 or 4.

Whereas all of our defeats have been by 1 goal.

We're yet to play Chelsea and Man City yet, will have to see how our goal difference holds up after that.

Agreed, I watched their game vs Chelsea yesterday and it was men vs boys with Chelsea carving them apart time and time again. Chelsea had 3 goals disallowed but 6-0 would not have flattered Chelsea.

I can’t see anyone else bar Chelsea winning it this year. They’ve conceded 4 all season (and one was a very lucky Burnley equaliser).

Still Lukaku to come back from injury too.
