Michael Cuisance to Leeds: Marcelo Bielsa's squad depth for 2020/21 is impressive

Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United are going to be a serious problem in 2020/21

Leeds United are finally back in the Premier League where they belong.

After over a decade of toiling in England's lower leagues, Marcelo Bielsa's side are mixing it with the very best once again and they've given a great account of themselves thus far.

The Whites gave champions Liverpool a huge scare on the opening night of the 2020/21 season, losing 4-3 at Anfield in what will go down as an all time Premier League classic.

Since then, Bielsa's side have claimed back-to-back wins, beating Fulham 4-3 at Elland Road and last season's surprise package Sheffield United 1-0 on Sunday afternoon - securing a much-needed clean sheet in the process.

In those three games, Leeds have shown more than enough to suggest that surviving in the top-flight should be a given.

Bielsa's unique management style is yielding sizeable rewards and the club's squad is also brimming with young, exciting talent.

Not to mention they have been prolific in the transfer market. The high-profile additions of Rodrigo Moreno, Robin Koch, Helder Costa and Diego Llorente have understandably increased the expectation of Leeds fans for 2020/21.

The Whites are also closing in on the signing of 21-year-old Frenchman Michael Cuisance from Bayern Munich.

Once the talented attacking midfielder is added to the club's roster, Leeds' squad depth will look even more impressive.

Below, we've designed a graphic to highlight just how strong the club's squad is looking and on paper, it's one that will trouble every team in the Premier League.

The arrivals of Llorente, Koch and goalkeeper Illan Meslier on a permanent basis have given Leeds strength in numbers at the back.

Jamie Shackleton's versatility will be key in providing cover for both right-back Luke Ayling and holding midfielder Kalvin Phillips throughout the 2020/21 season.

Further forward, the signing of Rodrigo provides strong competition up front for Premier League goal machine Patrick Bamford and the Spaniard can also be deployed out on the right-wing.

Then in the advanced central midfield roles, Bielsa should have the exciting quartet of Cuisance, Pablo Hernandez, Tyler Roberts and Mateusz Klich to pick from.

A combination of experience and youth all over the park. Bielsa is quietly building a squad capable of challenging for European qualification in the not too distant future.

Leeds are back where they belong and they're not here to just make up the numbers - they're here to upset the established order of the Premier League.
