Leeds: 'Real worry' emerges for Jesse Marsch at Elland Road

Leeds manager Jesse Marsch against Manchester City in the Premier League

Leeds are in the process of being sucked back into a relegation dogfight, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

Jesse Marsch has done a decent job in trying to steer the Elland Road outfit away from relegation, but the form of those below them means the Yorkshire side now sit nervously above the bottom three.

What’s the latest news involving Leeds?

When Marsch’s charges won 3-0 at Watford less than four weeks ago, they sat a healthy nine points above the drop zone and looked like their Premier League status was all-but secured despite 18th place Burnley having three games in hand.

But since Sean Dyche was sacked later that week, both Everton and Burnley’s form has improved dramatically, while Leeds have collected just a single point during that period.

As a result, Marsch’s side are now just two points ahead of the 18th place Toffees, who collected a priceless three points against Chelsea on Sunday, while the Clarets produced a comeback victory at Watford 24 hours earlier to ramp up the pressure on Leeds.

Heading into the final four matches, Leeds’ destiny is now out of their hands, meaning they’re now relying on either Burnley or Everton slipping up to ensure they’re a top-flight club next season.

What did O’Rourke say about Leeds?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “The real worry for Leeds right now is that they’re getting sucked back into it. That heavy defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, coupled with a few injuries.

“It looks like they’ve got a tough couple of fixtures coming up against Arsenal and Chelsea, so it’s a worrying time for Leeds.”

What are Leeds’ remaining fixtures?

If Leeds’ current position wasn’t concerning enough, their fixture list will make their fan base even more worried.

Their next two games are pretty much as tough as it gets outside of the top two, with the Whites travelling to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon before they face another London side when Chelsea visit what will be a red-hot Elland Road on Wednesday.

Leeds then have another home game against Brighton before rounding off the campaign with a trip to Brentford.

They’ll surely see their final two games as the perfect chance to put some points on the board, but if Everton and Burnley don’t slip up, they could be in serious trouble by the time they host Brighton in just over two weeks’ time.
