Leeds created an impressive series of statistics after a 5-0 win

Coach Bielsa’s teachers and teachers buried West Brom in the match of round 16 of the Premier League on December 30.

West Brom held the defending champions Liverpool in the previous round, but could not maintain an impressive performance when hosting Leeds. Coach Sam Allardyce’s teachers and students were conceded 5 times by the opponent, thereby continuing to remain in the penultimate position on the rankings.

The poor performance of “The Baggies” helped Leeds create an impressive series of statistics. For the first time in 19 years, the football team from Yorkshire scored 4 or more goals against the opponent’s net in just the first half. In May 2001, “The Whites” led Bradford 5-1 after 45 minutes and ended the game with a score of 6-1.

Leeds conquered the audience of the Premier League with a devoted play

After 16 rounds, Leeds is the most devoted team in the Premier League with 60 goals leading to goals (scoring 30 goals, conceding 30 goals). With the same number of matches, only Southampton in the 1986/87 season played more devotedly (scoring 30 goals, conceding 35 times).

Man United vs. Leeds United

The match of the 14th round of the Premier League between Man United and Leeds United took place with an unexpected scenario when the home team easily won 6-2.

Even with a very good head-to-head record, with a series of 15 consecutive unbeaten matches when receiving Leeds (winning 9 draws 6), MU fans can hardly imagine their team having an easy game.

However, the score 6-2 in favor of the Red Devils is still enough to make their fans happy, especially when it helps the Old Trafford team to rise to the top 3 on the Premier League standings 2020/21, with 26 points after 14 rounds, 5 points behind top team Liverpool and less than a match.

Bielsa’s stubbornness makes Leeds United no longer worth watching

After working in the football world for three decades, Mr. Bielsa adopted many tactics that surprised his fans. The Argentine teacher also became stubborn and always kept absolute faith in the philosophy he pursued. At Leeds, “El Loco” (Bielsa’s nickname) did a lot. He made this team a very worthy group with a unique high pressing football.

No matter who the opponent is, Bielsa’s army is still playing like pressing machines and always in an overwhelming position. They kick very strongly, bear hard to move to put pressure on the opponent. In the MU clash, Leeds played according to the philosophy that coach Bielsa applied. They lost 2-6. In the first 45 minutes, the football team coming from Yorkshire soon sunk when he received 4 goals.

Coach Bielsa was disappointed when he saw Leeds lose heavily to MU

After the game, Mr. Bielsa described Plan B in football as a medicine relieving anxiety. The Argentine strategist also stressed that there is far from a change in the football philosophy that has blown Leeds.

However, the fans of the home team Elland Road are in desperate need of medicine that reduces anxiety. On the Premier League rankings, Leeds ranked 14th and only 7 points ahead of the dropping group, an unsafe distance. According to coach Bielsa, “Plan B” in football only helps a team to be better prepared against different opponents. This goes against creating a consistent play style for the club.

In modern football, Bielsa’s stubborn stubbornness makes things easier for his opponents

When facing Leeds, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows for sure how his opponent will play. He read the great rivalry, knew the opponent was difficult to change, or created a surprise about his approach to the match.

Bielsa is very open to the media

In the Premier League, Leeds is a team with a unique style of playing. They change state very quickly and are agile when holding the ball. Mr. Bielsa is also deploying 1-on-1 work across the field.

After 14 rounds in the Premier League, up to 6 times, they conceded from 3 goals or more. No club has been better than Leeds in this regard. But this Yorkshire football team also won five games and kept clean sheets against Arsenal, Everton, Ston Villa, and Sheffield United.

They scored 22 goals, a very high number so far. Among the Premier League rookie promotion, Leeds, highly appreciated by professionals, will stay relegated. They could even win tickets to the European Cup.

Chelsea rose to the top of the group after their win over Leeds United

On the morning of December, 6 a 3-1 victory over Leeds United brought teacher and coach Frank Lampard to the top with one point more than Tottenham Hotspur.

Coach Frank Lampard ranked Olivier Giroud to start after an impressive performance with a poker shot against Sevilla in the Champions League on 3/12. Supporting him in attack were rookie duo Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner. This was also the first match that Chelsea welcomed fans back to Stamford Bridge after a period of absence from fans because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chelsea rose to the top of the group after their win over Leeds United

According to Opta , Bamford is the player to score the most away goals in the Premier League this season. Seven of the eight goals scored by the English striker have all been recorded at times away from home. He spent many years on a Chelsea payroll before being sold off to Middlesbrough and moved to Leeds in the summer of 2018.

After many missed opportunities, Giroud equalized the home team with a one-touch shot from Reece James’s cross. The French striker is the first player, since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in 2010, to score in six consecutive Premier League games for Chelsea.

This is the seventh goal after Giroud’s 11 appearances for Chelsea this season. The player born in 1984 showed impressive scoring performance despite often having to sit on the bench before that. Chelsea has two strikers with good performance as Tammy Abraham also has 5 goals and 5 assists so far.

In the second half, the two sides still kept a balanced match with many tit-for-tat situations. After being promoted, Leeds became one of the top horses worth watching in the Premier League under the guidance of coach Marcelo Bielsa. However, the 61st minute Kurt Zouma headed in from Mason Mount’s corner to give the home side the lead.

This victory helped Chelsea rise to the top of the Premier League with 22 points, one point ahead of Tottenham and Liverpool. After the match with Krasnodar in the Champions League on December 9, Lampard’s teachers and teachers will in turn encounter many difficult opponents until the end of December, including Everton, West Ham, Wolves and Arsenal.

Which squad does Leeds United play when he returns to the Premier League? (Part 2)

On the attacking front, coach Bielsa is targeting striker Che Adams, who recently moved to Southampton from Birmingham for a fee of £ 15 million in January 2019. However, the 24-year-old striker was infrequently used and was only allowed on the bench, having a total of 996 minutes in the Premier League since the start of the season.

Adams was asked to borrow money from Leeds United twice (summer 2019 and winter 2020) but was rejected. Most likely, Coach Bielsa will continue to return to the striker who scored 22 goals in the English first division season 2018/19.

Along with the recruitment of experienced veterans, the football club from Yorkshire is also promoting negotiations to continue borrowing young players who have just experienced a successful season. It is Jack Harrison of Man City, Ben White of Brighton.

Will Leeds United challenge the Big Six?

Peter Reid, a former coach who led Leeds United in 2003, confirmed that the Elland Road team returned to the Premier League after 16 years and will become a counterbalance to the Big Six teams.

Will Leeds United challenge the Big Six?

The failure of West Brom and Brentford, the two direct competitors in the early 45th round, helped Leeds United officially win the English Premier League title with the Premier League promotion ticket for the first time in 16 years.

Witness the return of one of the big names of football in the fog, coach Peter Reid, who briefly led the Elland Road team, thinks they have returned to where they belonged and returned to counterbalance the Big Six.

Besides, the former captain of Leeds United also appreciated the talent of coach Marcelo Bielsa, the chief architect to help the Elland Road team to be promoted after only two seasons.

We all know how the team Bielsa leads the play. It’s football with high energy. I like this. I think Leeds United is back where they belong, “said coach Peter Reid.

In March 2003, Peter Reid turned down an offer to lead the Irish Republic to assume the role of interim coach at Leeds United after the team fired Terry Venables. It was the strategy that was born in 1956 that helped Leeds United revive and successfully relegate in the Premier League and be awarded the official contract.

However, the fact that the team was still in a financial crisis caused Reid to sell Harry Kewell and bring cheaper contracts instead. The quality of the team dropped, causing Leeds United to play poorly and after a 1-6 defeat to the newly promoted team Portsmouth, he received a casket from the team in November 2003.

Which squad does Leeds United use in the Premier League? (Part 1)

Returning to the Premier League after 16 years of absence, coach Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United is making many people curious about the squad he will bring in the 2020/21 season.

Which squad will Leeds United play when he returns to the Premier League?

The failure of West Brom and Brentford, the two direct competitors in the early 45th round, helped Leeds United officially win the English Premier League title with the Premier League promotion ticket for the first time in 16 years. Winning promotion tickets means the team’s budget will have a huge budget.

Dr. Rob Wolson, a football finance expert from Sheffield Hallam University, said the promotion will help Leeds reap about 140 million euros of advertising money. And even in the case of relegation after just one season, Leeds still received £ 70 million in royalties and achievements in the Premier League.

Auditing firm Deloitte also calculated that the amount of money Leeds received could increase to £ 290 million over five years if relegated successfully in the first season. However, if you want to stay relegated successfully, the football team from the West Yorkshire need to be strong on Techmart to upgrade the squad.

With the current staff, it will not be easy for coach Marcelo Bielsa to help the home team of Elland Road fight in the Foreign Premier League, where the fierce is far more than the first division.

Quite a few names have been mentioned in the transfer plan of coach Bielsa. Veteran goalkeeper Joe Hart, who expires his contract with Burnley at the end of the season, is likely to be Leeds United’s first rookie.

Liverpool’s young defender Yasser Larouci is also a target for Leeds United

In addition to Hart, a former England teammate midfielder James Milner is also being linked to the Elland Road Stadium. Milner has just renewed a two-year contract with Liverpool, but at the age of 34 it will be difficult for him to win his position at Anfield and this player will likely decide to return to the team he started up with since five. 1996 to 2004.

Liverpool’s young defender Yasser Larouci is also a target for Leeds United. The 19-year-old French player is currently on the payroll of the Liverpool U23 team but has not had many opportunities to step into the first team. Therefore, it is likely that he will decide to leave to develop his career.

After a good start, Leeds is slowly running out of breath with rivals in the Premier League. Coach Marcelo Bielsa’s teacher and teacher have a second consecutive defeat. In the last 5 rounds, the Premier League rookie got a victory. Failure at Selhurst field caused “The Whites” to drop to 14th place with 10 points.

Shortly after being stripped of the goal, the football team from the West Yorkshire conceded for the second time. A young player born in 1998, Eberechi Eze shined with a beautiful free-kick from a distance of more than 20 meters, helping “Blue Eagle” lead 2-0.

Illan Meslier did what he could, but gave it up. Both ends of the home team sent the ball to the edge of the bar, before going into the net.

Leeds persisted and had a goal to shorten the score in the 27th minute

Bamford continued to concede Crystal Palace. His goal this time was recognized. The striker born in 1993 has 7 goals in the Premier League this season, the performance is only inferior to Son Heung-min and Calvert-Lewin (8 goals).

Bamford’s goal is also what Leeds United did in front of the host. 3 minutes before the break, Coach Roy Hodgson’s teachers and teachers had a goal to increase the score to 3-1. Van Aanholt’s horizontal stretch hit Helder Costa’s foot. The ball changed direction to the corner near the Leeds goal.

Pressure on the Leicester defense increased in the second half. Leeds attacked quickly, and there was a goal to shorten the score, after Dallas’s uncomfortable ball suspension. Liam Cooper shot high but did not touch the ball. Goalkeeper Schmeichel was startled and could not save the visitors in time.

After the opponent had a goal, Coach Rodgers did not reinforce the defense, instead, he sent two attackers, James Maddison and Cengiz Under, into the field. The correct decision of this military leader helped Leicester to have 2 more goals in the remainder of the second half.

In the goal to increase the score to 3-1, Leicester needed 4 passes from home to conquer the football team from West Yorkshire. The ball went through Schmeichel, Maddison, Under, and was neatly finished by Vardy into the empty goal.

After 217 appearances, Vardy has 110 Premier League goals, more than many players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Ryan Giggs, Didier Drogba.

At the last minute, Maddison also earned a penalty. Tielemans ended Leicester’s impressive day with a successful kick to make the score 4-1. “Fox” has 15 points after 7 rounds, thereby rising to 2nd place. This is the best achievement of the home team at King Power since the 2000/01 season.

Leeds United had started slumping a season earlier, in the face of financial turmoil. The home club Elland Road has to sell many pillars such as Rio Ferdinand, Robbie Keane, Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, or Robbie Fowler. Although there are still a few good players like Mark Viduka, Alan Smith, Jermaine Pennant, or James Milner, they are still 19th and relegated with Leicester and Wolverhampton.

How did Radrizzani bring change to Leeds United (Part 2)

Radrizzani even answered La Gazzetta Dello Sports that he was willing to pay Conte £ 20 million if Conte secured Leeds back and relegation in the Premier League. 20 million pounds is the dream money of the top coach at the top club today.

But then Bielsa answered. And when they talked for the first time on the phone, both Orta and Radrizzani were surprised to learn that Bielsa had watched 7 Leeds games.

Until Orta and Radrizzani flew to Buenos Aires to meet Bielsa in person, they were even more terrified when Bielsa watched all 17 Leeds games, and at the same time read on how strong and weak the Leeds players were, including reserve player.

However, the third time they met, also in Buenos Aires, the Leeds executive team was completely overpowered. Bielsa presented a series of charts on the table, just confining the advantages and disadvantages, the play style of all Leeds’ opponents in the First Division of England.

Returning to England, Leeds chief executive Angus Kinnear still couldn’t believe such a detailed person was. Kinnear himself said that there was even a candidate for a coach in Leeds, but could not remember a name in the Leeds squad at that time.

Radrizzani became the man that brought change to Leeds United

However, Kinnear also told Radrizzani that he did not understand if the Bielsa plan would be successful, lest such a “master” be willing to work in the First Class and it was not known how he would demand his salary.

Ultimately the impossible, as Orta said and like Kinnear’s fear, became possible. Bielsa accepted. Salary is less than 1/7 of the amount that Radrizzani is willing to pay Conte. Only 3 million pounds only. However, that is also the record salary for the First Class. Bielsa came to England and got to work.

One of the ideas was that he suggested a bed, a PlayStation for the players at Thorp Arch. He also took a bed there so he could stay.
